Hello folks,

I'm trying to figure out which CPU configuration would give me the best performance and an HP server. All else being equal, would two 4 core 2.5 GHz processor be better than one 8 core 2.5 GHz processor in terms of overall performance? I am running six virtual machines using ESXI on this physical server host including two database servers doing lightweight database crunching. Thanks.
