Front view of Intel E5-2680V4

Reasons to consider the
Intel E5-2680V4

Report a correction
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 35 MB vs 30 MB More than 15% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Slightly higher turbo clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 3.1 GHz More than 5% higher turbo clock speed
Supports more RAM 1,572,864 MB vs 786,432 MB Supports 2x more RAM
Better PassMark score 19,922 vs 16,619 Around 20% better PassMark score
More cores 14 vs 12 2 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 28 vs 24 4 more threads
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Jul, 2014 Release date over 1 years later
