2xQuad Core Xeon 5345 vs 4xDual Core Opteron 8212 - 2.00GHz ?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm looking into some expensive dedicated servers and i need to know what is better. I can get a
Quote:
Quad Processor Dual Core Opteron 8212 - 2.00GHz - 8 x 1MB cache
or
Quote:
Dual Processor Quad Core Xeon 5345 - 2.33GHz (Clovertown) - 2 x 8MB cache.
I need to host and sql server and run a multi threaded program on it that will take all cpu power available if needed. A friend of mine told me to get the 73GB SA-SCSI (15k) hard drive with it, so my only problem is with the cpu.
I don't know much about this type of hardware so I seek help form somebody smarter.
Ps. https://www.softlayer.com/ is where I'm looking for servers.

Thanks for any help you can give.

I would say the Opterons. They are known for being better when in parrel cases. Intel still hasn't mastered that area yet.

I hate to say it, but this forum doesn't know a whole lot about server grade hardware. We know some stuffs, but actual performance figures will be hard to find on this site. We can tell you which overclocks better though

(actually neither, since it's server grade hardware, usually of course the BIOS has clock options, then I'd put my money on the Xeons)
