- 64GB memory vs. Opteron's 32GB,
- runs at 400MHz higher frequency
More fair comparison is the Xeon 5080 vs. Opteron. Namely, the difference in results is too small given the huge difference in processor frequencies - Xeon 5080 runs at 1.1GHz higher frequency than Opteron (Xeon@3.7GHz vs. Opteron@2.6GHz). Maybe the flashy graph is enough to convince managers in "superiority" of Intel's technology, but it didn't convince me.
