Differences

Reasons to consider the AMD Opteron 6308

  • Around 57% lower typical power consumption: 115 Watt vs 180 Watt
Thermal Design Power (TDP) 115 Watt vs 180 Watt

Reasons to consider the AMD EPYC 7551P

  • Processor is unlocked, an unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
  • 28 more cores, run more applications at once: 32 vs 4
  • 60 more threads: 64 vs 4
  • A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor: 14 nm vs 32 nm
  • 16x more L1 cache, more data can be stored in the L1 cache for quick access later
  • 4x more L2 cache, more data can be stored in the L2 cache for quick access later
  • 4x more L3 cache, more data can be stored in the L3 cache for quick access later
