Intel Xeon E3-1230 vs L5639

Mini Review

Intel Xeon E3-1230 advantages

  • The microprocessor offers higher operating frequency than the Intel L5639 CPU.
  • The Intel E3-1230 has AVX instructions, that were introduced in modern processors not too far ago. Even though these extensions are not widely used by programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.

Intel Xeon L5639 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the Xeon L5639 help to tackle multiple tasks or heavily multi-threaded programs.
  • The microprocessor has 25% lower power consumption than the Intel E3-1230.

E3-1230 vs L5639 specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between L5639 and E3-1230 most important characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of extra threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while 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. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
