    Which of these two server specs are better?

    Hello

    I apologise in advance if this is a dumb question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Which of these two server specs (just the processor information) are better?

    Server 1:
    Dual Xeon 3.2
    Clockspeed 3.2GHz
    Processors 2
    Cores 1
    FSB 400Mhz
    Cache 2MB
    Bit Width 32-bit

    Server 2:
    Xeon 3360 Quad Core
    Clockspeed 2.83GHz
    Processors 1
    Cores 4
    FSB 1333Mhz
    Cache 12MB
    Bit Width 64-bit

    Thanks!

    More of that - it is 64-bit, so you will have even more productivity using 64-bit OS.

    Got with Option 2. If your application allows 64 bits than it will be your best bet.

    It's pretty cool that the X3360 can be nearly four times faster than the old dual xeon, new architectures really makes a difference
