Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5 2690 v2

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 25 MB vs 1 MB 25x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
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 higher Maximum operating temperature 88 °C vs 55 °C 60% 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 more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 5x more l3 cache per core
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.24 GHz vs 3 GHz Around 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
