Front view of Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 65% higher clock speed
Much more l3 cache 8 MB vs 1 MB 8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.67 GHz vs 2.66 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l3 cache per core
Significantly lower typical power consumption 56.06W vs 77.19W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.5 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 75% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer May, 2012 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 5 years later
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 60.44 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 16.62 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 25% lower annual home energy cost
