Dual Quad-Core 5520 2.26GHz or E-3 1230 v2 3.3 ghz


Hello,

I am currently on Hostgator Pro dedicated server which is Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 3.3GHz

When i see server information in whm it says 8 processors of 3.3 ghz each and 4096 cache

when i talk their support they say it is single processor with 4 cores only, so how come there it is written as 8 processors and not 4 cores, i don't understand.

Which has made me think that may be i need quad processor server with 8 core each from liquidweb.com - but they are too expensive.
Now I came across this server here Dual 5520 Quad-Core Xeon 2.26GHz with HT & Turbo, 24GB RAM, 2 x 500GB Sata, RAID 1, IMPI, 10TB

first server on this page.

So tell me which one is better for me, if i am not satisfied with hostgator dedicated server.

I am giving other options in poll also, to have a look.

It has hyperthreading. The extra 4 cores are "virtual" cores. You only have 4 physical, real, actual cores.

What do you use the server for? Having more CPUs is not always the best option. Sometimes having fewer CPUs that are faster will give you better results.

In most cases, RAM and HDDs will play a bigger factor, so please post the rest of your server specs along with that.

Go with Dual 5520. It beats Xeon E3-1230 V2 3.3GHz.

Both are great machines, and if everything is running smoothly currently it is hard to suggest moving. However if you are looking to move, the Dual E5520 machine is a solid value.

I doubt your CPU has anything to do with your load then.
You are more than likely running low on memory or I/O (HDD) performance.

From what I'm looking at, the Dual 5520 gets smashed by the single 1230. Even though those are synthetic benchmarks. The mere fact that a single CPU can smash a two CPU system that bad says a lot.

Definitely not a problem, it comes in handy when you need a raw comparison to make a better decision on a CPU.

And the same table shows that AMD Opteron 6272 is faster than 6274, Intel E5-2670 faster than E5-2680, etc. Makes you wonder if these benchmarks are trustworthy at all.

Which is why I mentioned that they are synthetic benchmarks. As such are meant to be used as a "guide." Because none of these stats account for overclocked units, only model #.

The comparison I made between the two setups, has such a HUGE gap it was worth noting.

No idea what "synthetic" (as opposed to "organic"?) benchmark means ...

Wiki can answer that for you.
