Intel Xeon E5-2428L

Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly more l3 cache 15 MB vs 6 MB 2.5x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core More than 65% more l3 cache per core
Supports more RAM 393,216 MB vs 8,192 MB Supports 48x more RAM
More cores 6 vs 4 2 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 8 4 more threads
Newer May, 2012 vs Jun, 2010 Release date over 1 years later
More l2 cache per core 0.33 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core Around 35% more l2 cache per core
