Front view of Intel Xeon E5-4650

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5-4650

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.7 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 70% higher clock speed
More cores 8 vs 1 7 more cores; run more applications at once
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More threads 16 vs 1 15 more threads
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better PassMark score 11,960 vs 428 Around 28x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.94 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 4 vs 1 3 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.7 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 70% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer May, 2012 vs Sep, 2003 Release date over 8 years later
