Intel Xeon E5-2430

15 Reasons why Intel Xeon E5-2430 is better

than the average

1.Faster CPU clock speed
6 x 2.2GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Significantly more CPU threads
12vs 7 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Vastly bigger L1 cache
384KBvs 271KB (the average)
vs 1536KB (best: AMD Opteron 6180 SE)
A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4.Sizably higher PassMark result
7288vs 5515 (the average)
vs 17470 (best: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
5.More memory bandwidth
32GB/svs 31GB/s (the average)
vs 192.2GB/s (best: Intel Xeon E5504)
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
6.Uses hyperthreading technology
Yesvs No (59% don't have it)
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.
7.Significantly more transistors
2270 millionvs 1458 million (the average)
vs 7100 million (best: Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit))
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
8.Noticeably bigger L3 cache
15MBvs 10MB (the average)
vs 60MB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
9.Vastly more memory channels
3vs 2 (the average)
vs 4 (best: Intel Core i7-3960X)
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
10.Noticeably more L3 cache per core
2.5MB/corevs 1.8MB/core (the average)
vs 15MB/core (best: Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4)
More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
11.Sizably newer version of PCI Express (PCIe)
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 3 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
12.Supports ECC memory
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
13.Distinctly faster bus transfer rate
7.1GT/svs 5.7GT/s (the average)
vs 9.6GT/s (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.
14.Vastly larger maximum memory size
375GBvs 331GB (the average)
vs 4096GB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8870)
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
15.Modestly higher SSE version
4.2vs 4.1 (the average)
vs 4.2 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
