Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-2609

Report a correction
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Slightly more l3 cache 10 MB vs 8 MB 25% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports more RAM 393,216 MB vs 32,768 MB Supports 12x more RAM
More l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 2 MB/core 25% more l3 cache per core

Significantly higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 40% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better performance per dollar 3.12 pt/$ vs 2.33 pt/$ Around 35% better performance per dollar
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 2,029 vs 980 More than 2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.85 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Better PassMark score 9,523 vs 6,973 More than 35% better PassMark score
Better performance per watt 10.41 pt/W vs 8.89 pt/W More than 15% better performance per watt
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.01 GHz vs 2.56 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jun, 2013 vs Mar, 2012 Release date over 1 years later
