Front view of Intel Xeon L5508

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon L5508

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache per core 4 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core Around 2.8x more l3 cache per core
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 3 MB Around 2.8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 85 °C vs 65 °C More than 30% higher Maximum operating temperature
Lower typical power consumption 30.88W vs 41.44W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
Supports more RAM 147,456 MB vs 65,536 MB Supports 2.2x more RAM
Lower annual commercial energy cost 33.29 $/year vs 44.68 $/year More than 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 9.15 $/year vs 12.29 $/year More than 25% lower annual home energy cost

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i3 6100

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.7 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 85% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.25 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Mar, 2009 Release date over 6 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.39 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
