Hi all,

In a workstation-class computer, does it make any sense to use a processor that is meant for a dual processor setup (i.e. Xeon 2650) vs using a processor designed to be run as a single processor (i.e. Xeon 1650)?

Unless one is truly utilizing all 8 cores of the single 2650, the single 1650 should run slightly faster, correct? Being these are the same generation of chip, I am assuming clock speed is a fair comparison....

Thanks for your help.

Clock speed and workload is the Key as you state yourself.
