Differences What are the advantages of each

Front view of Intel Xeon E3-1270

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E3-1270

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 0.6 GHz Around 5.8x higher clock speed
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.52 GHz vs 0.6 GHz More than 5.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.8 GHz vs 0.6 GHz More than 6.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2011 vs Sep, 2010 Release date 6 months later
