Intel Xeon E7-8850

13 Reasons why Intel Xeon E7-8850 is better

than the average

1.Clearly faster CPU clock speed
10 x 2GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Distinctly more CPU threads
20vs 7 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Significantly 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.
4.Measurably 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.Considerably 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.Considerably bigger L3 cache
24MBvs 10MB (the average)
vs 60MB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
8.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.
9.Vastly more L3 cache per core
2.4MB/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.
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.Explicitly 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.
12.Sizably larger maximum memory size
4096GBvs 331GB (the average)
vs 4096GB (best: Intel Xeon E7-8870)
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
13.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.
