Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3

Report a correction
Much higher turbo clock speed 3.2 GHz vs None Compared to all cpus, 3.2 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Much higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 25% higher clock speed
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
More cores 8 vs 4 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.75 GHz vs 1.9 GHz Around 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Slightly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 28 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.4 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2014 vs May, 2013 Release date over 1 years later
