Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E5472

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 12 MB vs 4 MB 3x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2.13 GHz More than 40% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 2 MB/core 50% more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.38 GHz vs 2.13 GHz Around 60% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.58 GHz vs 2.13 GHz Around 70% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Nov, 2007 vs Dec, 2006 Release date 11 months later
