Intel Xeon E5-2609

10 Reasons why Intel Xeon E5-2609 is better

than the average

1.Distinctly more memory bandwidth
34.1GB/svs 30.7GB/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.
2.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.
3.Modestly bigger L3 cache
10MBvs 10MB (the average)
vs 60MB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
4.Noticeably more memory channels
4vs 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.
5.Significantly 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.
6.Noticeably 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.
7.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.
8.Measurably faster bus transfer rate
6.4GT/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.
9.Sizably larger maximum memory size
750GBvs 331GB (the average)
vs 4096GB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8870)
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
10.Somewhat 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.
