    Is hapertown better then a clovertown?

    Hello Guys. I am not such a server savy. But i hope to see your answer to this.
    I ordered a server from IWEB.
    Their consultant was cool and offered me a deal.

    I was offered
    2x Dual Xeon Quad Core Clovertown 1.6Ghz
    4 gig ram
    2x500 hd
    RAID 1
    1500 GB banwith
    Cpanel/WHM + centos 5
    auto rebort port

    But when i got the server it said:

    Dual Xeon Harpertown 2.0GHz
    the rest was the same.

    Now my question to you all fine folks is

    Is Dual Xeon Harpertown 2.0GHz a quad core?
    and if so is it better then the 2x Dual Xeon Quad Core Clovertown 1.6Ghz?

    I did look for info and saw that hapertown was newer then clowertown, but i am lost here.

    Please help me understand in details about the differences. Their consultant says its a QUAD core, but in email it does not say Dual Xeon Harpertown 2.0GHz and that its alot better then the clovertown he first offered me which was a quad core..

    Regards

    RC

    Just like Clovertown, Harpertown is a four cores CPU. Unlike Clovertown, Hapertown is a newer CPU and has larger cache (24 MB cache per CPU rather than 16 MB). These, with the increased in clock speed you are getting (2.0 GHz per core instead of 1.6 GHz per core) makes the server you received better than what you ordered. So yea, consider yourself lucky

    Oh thats awsome, but when you say so, is the

    " Dual Xeon Harpertown 2.0GHz" a quad core? coz clovertown what i was offered is. I know you said CUP s a four cores CPU, but then again
    why does it say just DUAL Xeon. All i am trying to make sure is that
    is there a 2 core hapertown, or did they just come a quad?

    All Harpertown processors come with 2 x 6MB of shared L2 cache with 1333FSB
    I would even take a 2.0 Harpertown rather than a 2.66 Clovertown .

    Hi,

    It may have been an oversight or a mistake from our sales representative. In fact, we do not offer clovertowns anymore (this will be updated shortly).
    This being said, that is why you have gotten a harpertown - which is better than the previous generation in most aspects.

    You can relax, the harpertown vs clovertown is nothing to worry about

    Enjoy your stay at iWeb!
