Intel Xeon E5-2650

Report a correction
Much higher turbo clock speed 2.8 GHz vs 0 GHz Compared to all cpus, 2.8 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
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 threads 16 vs 12 4 more threads
Much lower typical power consumption 77.19W vs 113.75W More than 30% lower typical power consumption
Much more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 2.5x more l3 cache per core
Newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 83.22 $/year vs 122.64 $/year More than 30% lower annual commercial energy cost
Much lower annual home energy cost 22.89 $/year vs 33.73 $/year More than 30% lower annual home energy cost
Newer Mar, 2012 vs Feb, 2011 Release date over 1 years later
