I am looking at a DL385 Dual 16 Core AMD Cpu Machine like this..
I have been told that 6 core intel cpu have better PassMark rating than a 16 core making them better cpu's?
I dont entirely understand as the Cache, No of Cores and Clock Speed is greater on the AMD?
HP also have free additional CPU on there new G8 range so was wonder wether i would be better going with intel? However i am still currently swayed to the huge amount of cores on offer with the AMD?
Could anyone shed any light on this?
is PassMark totally relevant?
Are there any other better Servers i should be looking at within the price range and also and have direct report comparting these or similar processors also with use of VMware with these products.
Once again.. many, many thanks in advance.
So many questions i have asked regarding our new server purchase but we are getting close and nearly there just making few final decisions.
