Front view of Intel Xeon E5 2650 v2

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5 2650 v2

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 1.42 GHz Around 85% higher clock speed
Much more l3 cache 20 MB vs 12 MB More than 65% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 8 vs 2 6 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 16 vs 4 12 more threads
Much newer manufacturing process 22 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
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
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
