    Dual Xeon HT vs. Quad Xeon

    Hello!

    I would like to compare a Dual Xeon 3Ghz HT with a single Quad Xeon 2.4Ghz. Does tperformance difference worth $60 month plus?

    Thank you

    What are the model numbers? Which one would you pay more for?

    I love my x3220, which is a quad core xeon, but usually costs less than a dual xeon.

    Processor Versions are:

    2 X XEON 3.06GHZ 533FSB w/HYPERTHREADING

    1 X XEON X3220 QUAD CORE 2.4GHZ 1066FSB

    Yes, first one is Netburst and second one is Core architecture which is more efficient by CPU clock.

    A 2.4GHz CPU/Core of Core architecture would be faster than a 3GHz CPU/Core of Netburst. In this case you're comparing 4 faster Cores vs 2 Slower ones, so the Quad Core CPU would win by quite a bit.

    Now of course this is only the CPU, other aspects of the server would vary as well, but not as drastically.

    And of course, what you have to ask is if it's worth the $60 to you. =) I personally still consider a Dual Xeon 3GHz a pretty fast system, but it all depends on what you want to do with it.

    For my image processing proggie, I would prefer to have the fastest CPU, but if I was doing hosting, the 3GHz Dual setup would probably be enough.

    I am assuming these our our products, as the specs match our typical offerings. In that case, the Quad Core 3220 benchmarks at about 2.5x the Dual Xeon 3.06ghz...

    Don't need to go that far a E6550 will probally beat the old xeon 3.2.

    The quad core xeon 2.4 will run circles around the old xeon 3.2
