Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-2430L v2

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 15 MB vs 10 MB 50% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 6 vs 4 2 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 12 vs 4 Three times as many threads
Lower typical power consumption 48.75W vs 65W 25% lower typical power consumption
Newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Newer Jan, 2014 vs Mar, 2012 Release date over 1 years later
Lower annual commercial energy cost 52.56 $/year vs 70.08 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 14.45 $/year vs 19.27 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
