Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon L5630

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 12 MB vs 6 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.66 GHz vs 2.1 GHz Around 75% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Much more l3 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core 2x more l3 cache per core
Newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.48 GHz vs 2.1 GHz More than 65% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Mar, 2010 vs Apr, 2009 Release date 10 months later
