Intel Xeon E5-2620 v3

Cores6More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed2.4GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameHaswell-EPThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date01 Sep 2014 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP85WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache384KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache1536KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache15MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography22nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketLGA 2011/Socket RThe motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Xeon E5-2620 v3 compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Xeon E5-2620 v3 has exceptional performance. Its 6 cores clocked at 2.4 GHz provide mediocre processing speeds but allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is now over 6 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from Intel.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 22 nanometers, the Xeon E5-2620 v3 is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 85W the amount of power necessary to run is not excessive.
