Front view of Intel Xeon L5248

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon L5248

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.5 MB 12x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 85% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 6x more l2 cache per core
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3 GHz vs 1.79 GHz More than 65% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 85% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
