Intel Xeon E5620

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 12 MB vs 6 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.75 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Much more l3 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core 2x more l3 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.33 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 80% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Newer Mar, 2010 vs Nov, 2008 Release date over 1 years later
