Comparing 3yr old Xeon 2ghz to new P4 3Ghz & 800FSB Tags: CPUs Xeon Dell PCI Express Last response: June 2, 2006 11:46 PM in CPUs Share Rodent June 2, 2006 8:16:30 PM I have a customer that has a bad Dell board and they wanna sell him a whole new Xeon system to replace his current unit @ a cost of 1600.00 I suggested maybe upgrade to the E510 with upgraded PCI-e board too. Dell told him his 3yr old Xeon 2.0ghz will run circles around a new P4-3Ghz. Is this true and are there benchmarks or docs I can show him? thanks so much in advance....
