Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon E7-4860 v2

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 2.26 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
Much more l3 cache 30 MB vs 24 MB 25% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Significantly higher turbo clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.67 GHz Around 20% higher turbo clock speed
More threads 24 vs 20 4 more threads
Newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Newer Feb, 2014 vs Apr, 2011 Release date over 2 years later
