Intel Xeon E5-2620 review: 34 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

6 x 2GHz
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970X: 24 x 3.5GHz

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
1333MHz
AMD Ryzen 5 2400GE: 2933MHz

3. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
12
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X: 64

4. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
32nm
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X: 12nm

5. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
1.5MB
Intel Xeon Phi 7235: 32MB

6. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
384KB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X: 3072KB

7. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
8164
Intel Xeon W-2195: 26470

8. 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.
95W
Intel Atom E3805: 3W

9. 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.
Intel Xeon E5-2620
96% have it

10. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

11. turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
2.5GHz
Intel Core i5-7200U: 3100GHz

12. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
42.6GB/s
Intel Xeon E5504: 192.2GB/s

13. Has AES

AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
Intel Xeon E5-2620
79% have it

14. GeekBench result

This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2018)
9230
Intel Core i7-6950X: 51251

15. Has dynamic frequency scaling

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
Intel Xeon E5-2620
88% have it

16. L3 cache

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
15MB
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X: 65.54MB

17. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
Intel Xeon E5-2620
95% have it

18. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4
Intel Atom x5-Z8350: 12.8

19. Uses hyperthreading technology

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.
Intel Xeon E5-2620
57% have it

20. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
2270 million
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990X: 9600 million

21. PCI Express (PCIe) version

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.
3
Intel Core i9-7920X: 44

22. L3 core

More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
2.5MB/core
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1940X: 2340.57MB/core

23. PassMark result (single)

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
1264
Intel Core i3-7350K: 2625

24. Has NX bit

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
Intel Xeon E5-2620
94% have it

25. maximum memory size
