AMD Opteron 6136 vs Intel Xeon E5-2620: 21 facts in comparison

1. total clock speed

1.6x faster CPU clock speed.
6 x 2GHz

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

3. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

4. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

5. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

6. thermal design power (TDP)

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.

7. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core

8. Supports 64-bit

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.
