Hi guys,

I am planning to get a server but im not sure which one is better to choose. On one side we have the Dual 'Nehalem' Quad Core Xeon 5520 with 12GB RAM and on the other side the i7-980X Hexa-core with 24GB RAM. Which server is more powerful?

Thanks guys;)

The XEON based server would be the more powerful server.

Depends on the type of server and/or the running applications.. Generally though, the dual xeon setup will be more powerful..
