Default Intel Xeon 5140 vs E5410?

Hello!

I'm trying to understand the performance difference between these two processors: Xeon 5140 & Xeon E5410?

The Xeon 5140: 65nm, 4MB cache, 2,33GHz CS, 1333MHz FSB, Dual-core, $500
The Xeon E5410: 45nm, 12MB cache, 2,33GHz CS, 1333MHz FSB, Quad-core, $275

How would those two compare? the E5410 is 45% cheaper, while being a quad-core and 45nm technology. I'm confused!

Thanks.

Kind of a weird discrepancy between them, true. It's not uncommon for a retailer to have a few sku's leftover before new hardware comes in, and they never bother to mark down the price for clearance, which is what may have happened here. For example, you can still find some DDR2 sticks costing over $500, even though equivalents (and betters) have dropped below $100, because the retailer never bothered trying to clear them. That might be what's going on between those two items.

But yeah, between those two, at that price difference, the 45nm option should be a no-brainer.

The 5140 is significantly older. The E5410 is the next gen smaller, faster (and most importantly) cheaper equipment. I would guess that anyone who is still stuck with stock of the 5140 is keeping it for people who burn out their chips and need a replacement. I would also guess the E5410 would stomp the 5140 six ways from Sunday but benches are not easy to find. This site shows a small improvement of the E5410 but considering the drastic reduction in price it is definitely the better deal.

It's like saying, why is the AMD FX-60 still $600, when you can get a faster quadcore for $250. Old CPU's still carry the same cost. Dont buy it, not worth it.
