I just saw this as well...<br />
<br />
Fits into LGA775 socket as well<br />
<br />
Seems that Intel is going the way of the Opteron and making a server CPU available for the enthusiast desktop...with 4MB of L2 <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Whats the benifit of these xeons over a standard e6600? They look like they are about the same specs..

Well that's like asking what's the diff between and Opty and a similar Athlon 64. On paper, they look similar, but in application one is just way better. Hard to explain, really, I think.

</div>But Opterons aren't way better than Athlons, and Athlons aren't way better than Opterons. Athlons are slightly faster at the same clockspeed because of the Opteron's slightly more relaxed memory controller latencies, and the Opteron is slightly more stable at the same clockspeed for the same reason. One is not clearly better than the other.<br />

Edit: I've decided I'm going to get the Xeon 3040 instead of the E6300... 2 Mb more cache for only $20 more = yummy.

</div>See here is the difference between Intel and AMD CPUs, the Intels don't have onboard memory controllers. This gives the Xeon a slight advantage here.

</div>The only difference I see is the lower clockspeed models (3040 and 3050, 1.86 ghz and 2.13, respectively) are full blown Conroes, instead of Allendales like their Core 2 brothers, and thus have 4 Mbs of L2 instead of just 2.

but without the memory controller on the die, wouldn't that mean the Xeon conroes will be better?<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompare.asp?Category=34&Brand=1157&N=2010340343+50001157+1051707842+1302820275+1051107412+1051322797&Submit=ENE&Nty=1&SubCategory=343&CompareItemList=N82E16819117102%2CN82E16819115003%2CN82E16819117104" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819117104</a><br><br>
nothing to match teh 6400 though in clock speed and L2.<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompare.asp?Category=34&Brand=1157&N=2010340343+50001157+1051707842+1302820275+1051107412+1051322797&Submit=ENE&Nty=1&SubCategory=343&CompareItemList=N82E16819117102%2CN82E16819115003%2CN82E16819117104" target="_blank">All conroe/allendales.</a>
