Differences What are the advantages of each

Front view of Intel Xeon E5-2620

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-2620

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 25% higher clock speed
More cores 6 vs 2 Three times as many cores; run more applications at once
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
More threads 12 vs 4 Three times as many threads
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
Lower typical power consumption 77.19W vs 84.5W Around 10% lower typical power consumption
Newer Mar, 2012 vs Jul, 2006 Release date over 5 years later
Lower annual commercial energy cost 83.22 $/year vs 91.1 $/year Around 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 22.89 $/year vs 25.05 $/year Around 10% lower annual home energy cost
