Front view of Intel Xeon E5-2430L

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-2430L

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 25% higher clock speed
Much more l3 cache 15 MB vs 8 MB Around 90% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 6 vs 2 Three times as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 2 10 more threads
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Much lower typical power consumption 48.75W vs 84.5W More than 40% lower typical power consumption
Newer May, 2012 vs Jul, 2006 Release date over 5 years later
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 52.56 $/year vs 91.1 $/year More than 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Much lower annual home energy cost 14.45 $/year vs 25.05 $/year More than 40% lower annual home energy cost
