  • Summary: this is a major performance boost using two of these CPUs over two 1.6 GHz Xeons, MySQL works much faster with my huge database as a result.

Incredible Power

Sandra A., Newegg
6 November 2006
  • Summary: Running 2 Xeon 5150's is overkill for virtually any desktop out there. Especially considering a single 3 GHZ will outperform 2 of these for gaming.
  • Pros: Blazingly fast versus Opterons. Surpisingly a greater value than most of the Core 2 Duo line, this in most cases outperforms the Core 2 Extreme.
  • Cons: FB-Ram has had its death sentence from Intel and AMD and is ridiculously expensive versus regular DDR2 in the desktop equivalent.
