Intel Xeon E7-2803

12 Reasons why Intel Xeon E7-2803 is better

than the average

1.Appreciably more CPU threads
12vs 7 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
2.Measurably bigger L2 cache
2.56MBvs 1.93MB (the average)
vs 16MB (best: AMD Opteron 6380)
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
3.Much more L2 cache per core
0.426MB/corevs 0.400MB/core (the average)
vs 2.5MB/core (best: Intel Core i5-4200Y)
More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
4.Appreciably more memory bandwidth
102GB/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.
5.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.
6.Measurably more transistors
2600 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.
7.Significantly bigger L3 cache
18MBvs 10MB (the average)
vs 60MB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
8.Significantly 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.
9.Noticeably more L3 cache per core
3MB/corevs 2MB/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.
10.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.
11.Clearly larger maximum memory size
1024GBvs 331GB (the average)
vs 4096GB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8870)
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
12.Marginally 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.
