hi...evry1 i jst want to knw wat really is da diff...b/w a xeon 3040 and e6300. wat does it mean by SERVER (is dere somthing special in dis chip).

More about : wat difference e6300 xeon 3040

February 2, 2007 3:13:11 PM

Dey B 733t $$ drps in der 1h coz AMD gonna rlse 690 + K*L & chpzla 4s comin 2. Xeon ! so mch, bt 42/43/63 a lot.

Until you can learn to type, I hope nobody helps you. :p

Unfortunately, I have already packed my "Jive to English" phrasebook away. Xeon's are server chips-they don't do jive, so your probably going to be looking for the 6300, which does speak jive fluently.
J/K :wink: the link above says it all.

what should i do?? do u want me to change the question. if u want, this is my question:
IS THERE SOME DIFFERENCE BETWEEN E6300 AND A XEON 3040. AND ARE SERVER PROCESSOR GOOD AS COMPARED TO NORMAL PROCESSORS.

:idea: i hope carlhungis can understand it
February 2, 2007 7:07:49 PM

Dunt get ne off tht crop u gota get a a amd semporn they da best!
February 2, 2007 7:29:05 PM

man....read the question first....E6300 vs Xeon 3040

See! You CAN speak (type) in comprehensible English! Drop the act.

This is much better. I think the point people were trying to make is that when you abbreviate every word like you were it makes it very difficult to understand what you are asking. There is no reason for you to type the way you were when you can type the way you just did in this post.

Some people would say it is about respect, but for me it is more about asking a clear question to get a clear answer. If you can't take the time to express the question with clarity then why should people take the time to answer you with clarity?

Well... now that that is out of the way.
The specs I've found on the 3040 suggest that it basically IS an E6300 (1.86GHz, 2MB cache). Unlike AMD's Opterons which tended to OC better, I don't think that a 3040 would OC any better than a 6300 since its already an OC monster. Also from what I've seen the 3040 is more expensive than the 6300. In my opinion its not worth the effort. Get the 6300. An exception MIGHT be if you are running a server type workload. I'm not sure how optimized these chips are.

The 3XXX series of Xeons are pretty much rebranded C2Ds, they've been aproved by intel for 24/7/365 operation. In the real world they can oc a little higher, they run a little cooler, and can take lower voltages (thats a plus for oc'ing). Since the 3040s are only about $20 more expensive then the E6300s theres really no reason not to get one.
February 2, 2007 8:27:05 PM

Y'know... if you put it that way it DOES make sense to get one (the 3040). If you're looking to OC every little bit helps! And for people like me the 24/7/365 is an added bonus. Edit: Especially for a mere $20.

But if one's NOT going to run the CPU 24 x 7 x 365, then the cost of the memory comes into play.

I've not seen too many xeon OC posts, either, so don't know hot that compares.
February 2, 2007 8:34:16 PM

Like everyone else said, there probably won't be much difference in performance. It does cost $20 more. As far as cost in the next couple of quarters, the non-server version will probably be coming down more in price than the Xeon, so if you were going to hold off for a couple of months, the e-series would be even cheaper than the Xeon. Xeon will probablynever be that cheap. e42-4400 series is supposed to be ~$125, and have similar overclocked performance to the e6300 and Xeon 3040.
February 2, 2007 8:48:18 PM

I was under the impression that since this is a Socket 775 Xeon that it would run on any C2D certified mobo and that it'd take standard DDR2... which is why I didn't put: special server mobo/RAM under my "cons". Correct me if I'm wrong, it was just a guess.

To be honest, I really haven't spec'd that particular xeon myself, so I could be wrong.

Just checked IBM, and while its difficult to get exact specs for this model, (no spec sheet?) It is lga 775. Si it would appear that most any ddr2 would be acceptible.
February 2, 2007 10:06:44 PM

Any standard DDR2 sticks will work fine with the 3XXX series. Remember, there identical to the C2Ds, the only thing thats different is the name and the fact that they've passed intel stess tests, so there binned higher.
February 3, 2007 2:35:50 AM

so will there be any price drops in Q2-2007?
February 3, 2007 2:40:16 AM

and ya sorry for my chatty style :lol: 
February 3, 2007 3:35:32 AM

I wouldn't' be surprised if there were some price drops, but I don't think it is anything to hinge your purchase on. AMD and Intel had it out last year and it hurt their bottom lines. AMD prices actually rebounded last month. So, what you have to decide is whether waiting 3-4 months to save $15 is worth it to you (and I am only guessing at $15, it could be $5 or 50 or nothing).
