Dear Expert,

I am new in configuring a server. May I know the technical difference between Quad Core Intel Xeon E5440 2.8GHz/1333MHz/2x6MB L2, and Quad Core Intel Xeon 3360 2.83GHz/1333MHz/12M L2? How much performance I can gain from E5440 compare to 3360?

Thank you very much.

    Accepted Solution

    The E5440 is part of the newer 5000 series chips.  The 3000 series chips are an "economy" chip.  You would definitely want to go with the E5440, if performance is your objective.  From Intel's site about the E5400 series:
        *  Up to 2x better performance than previous generation dual-core and 5x better than single-core¹
        * Up to 20 percent better performance and 38 percent better performance per watt than previous generation quad-core²
