AMD Opteron 6328 vs Intel Xeon L5430

Mini Review

AMD Opteron 6328 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the 6328 help to handle multiple threads or applications at once.
  • Operating frequency of the AMD Opteron 6328 processor is higher than the frequency of the Intel Xeon L5430.
  • The AMD Opteron 6328 incorporates SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The AMD 6328 features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology, that provides AES encryption acceleration. The instructions are useful if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • This microprocessor includes AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions. These extensions are not broadly supported by programs yet, however their support should improve in future apps.
  • The 6328 CPU has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. Only AMD processors offer this technology, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • AMD still develops CPUs for Socket G34, used by the AMD Opteron 6328 processor. The company is going to launch new products for the socket in the future.

Intel Xeon L5430 advantages

  • The Intel L5430 is 57% more energy efficient.

6328 vs L5430 specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel Xeon L5430 and 6328 processors. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
