Front view of Intel Xeon L5420

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon L5420

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
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 lower typical power consumption 40.63W vs 105.63W 2.6x lower typical power consumption
Newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.85 GHz vs 3.2 GHz More than 20% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 43.8 $/year vs 113.88 $/year 2.6x lower annual commercial energy cost
Much lower annual home energy cost 12.04 $/year vs 31.32 $/year 2.6x lower annual home energy cost
