Intel Xeon L5609

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 12 MB vs 8 MB 50% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Significantly lower typical power consumption 32.5W vs 65W 2x lower typical power consumption
Supports more RAM 294,912 MB vs 147,456 MB Supports 2x more RAM
Newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l3 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 2 MB/core 50% more l3 cache per core
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 35.04 $/year vs 70.08 $/year 2x lower annual commercial energy cost
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 9.64 $/year vs 19.27 $/year 2x lower annual home energy cost
Newer Mar, 2010 vs Mar, 2009 Release date 11 months later
