Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon X5450

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 12 MB vs 2 MB 6x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2 GHz 50% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 3x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.07 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3 GHz vs 2 GHz 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Nov, 2007 vs May, 2005 Release date over 2 years later
