Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-2620

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 15 MB vs 1 MB 15x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
More cores 6 vs 2 Three times as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better PassMark score 7,957 vs 1,518 Around 5.2x better PassMark score
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
Much better performance per watt 6.57 pt/W vs 1.08 pt/W More than 6x better performance per watt
Much more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 5x more l3 cache per core
Newer Mar, 2012 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 5 years later
