Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5 2697 v2

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 3 MB vs 0.5 MB 6x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 2.7 GHz vs 1 GHz Around 2.8x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better PassMark score 17,812 vs 299 More than 59.5x better PassMark score
More threads 24 vs 1 23 more threads
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,685 vs 479 More than 3.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Much better performance per watt 9.11 pt/W vs 4.12 pt/W Around 2.2x better performance per watt
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.11 GHz vs 1.86 GHz More than 65% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.42 GHz vs 1.67 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
