Intel Xeon E5-2640

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 15 MB vs 2 MB 7.5x 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
Much better performance per watt 7.66 pt/W vs 1.84 pt/W Around 4.2x better performance per watt
More threads 12 vs 4 Three times as many threads
Significantly newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 5x more l3 cache per core
Lower typical power consumption 77.19W vs 85.31W Around 10% lower typical power consumption
Newer Mar, 2012 vs Apr, 2008 Release date over 3 years later
Lower annual commercial energy cost 83.22 $/year vs 91.98 $/year Around 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 22.89 $/year vs 25.29 $/year Around 10% lower annual home energy cost
