Front view of Intel Xeon X5450

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon X5450

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 12 MB vs 4 MB 3x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 2 MB/core 50% more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.07 GHz vs 3 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Newer Nov, 2007 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 1 years later
