Xeon Dempsey VS. Xeon Woodcrest Tags: CPUs Xeon Processors Dual Core Last response: September 5, 2007 8:29 PM in CPUs Share needhelpnoobie August 29, 2006 7:53:47 AM I'm thinking about renting a gaming server to go along with the one I built. I can get: Dual Core Dual Xeon 5050, Dempsey 4x2mb Cache, 4 x 3.0Ghz Processors w/HT. OR Dual Core Dual Xeon 5130, Woodcrest 4x2mb Cache, 4 x 2.0Ghz Processors. Which is better? I hear great stuff about the woodcrests, but its a full 1ghz less on each core. What do you guys think? More about : xeon dempsey xeon woodcrest ethernalite August 29, 2006 11:03:09 AM Woodcrest. No contest. The 2Ghz Woodcrest processor will almost outperform the 5050 by a factor of two in many server apps. exit2dos August 29, 2006 11:10:04 PM Here's a benchmark review - it doesn't have the 5050, but shows that the 5130 still beats the 5060 (3.2GHz). http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_content.asp?id=woodcrest&page=1 Related resources Intel Dempsey, XEON 5000 - Forum Xeon 5160 Woodcrest processors - Need a MB Recomendation. - Forum Should I go for dual xeon woodcrest or regular core dual? - Forum FS:2 NEW Woodcrest Intel S5000VSASATA DUAL SOCKET 771 XEON - Forum Xeon Woodcrest Preys On Opteron - Forum Can't find your answer ?
