Front view of Intel Xeon Phi 7120D

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon Phi 7120D

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 30.5 MB vs 3 MB Around 10.2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More threads 244 vs 1 243 more threads
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 8 vs 1 7 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Jan, 2014 vs Aug, 2008 Release date over 5 years later

"slightly more L2 Cache"
And , the xeon chip isn't really a cpu ......
this is a fair comparison
Hmm 61 cores in games will not work well unless I take this solo.
