Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5 2680 v2

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.8 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
More threads 20 vs 2 18 more threads
More cores 10 vs 2 8 more cores; run more applications at once
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better performance per watt 12.44 pt/W vs 0.94 pt/W Around 13.2x better performance per watt
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 82 °C vs 67 °C More than 20% higher Maximum operating temperature
More l2 cache 2.5 MB vs 2 MB 25% more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.4 GHz vs 2.67 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.49 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 45% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2013 vs Sep, 2005 Release date over 7 years later
