Intel Xeon W3580

The Xeon W3580 is a 4 core CPU from Intel released in 2009. This chip has an average overall score at 20% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a good processor for gaming, with a score of 36%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Xeon W3580 scores 15% and 15% respectively. Indeed, this is an average rating for very heavy workloads.

The Xeon W3580 has 4 cores and 8 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This Intel CPU has a clock speed of 3.3 GHz and a turbo speed of 3.6 GHz : a higher clock speed that can be reached when thermals and power delivery allow.

As for memory, the Xeon W3580 makes use of DDR3-1066 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. It can accommodate a maximum of 24 GiB of memory. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 3 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled. Error correcting memory is supported on this processor.

In terms of cache, the Xeon W3580 has 1 MiB of level 2 cache and 8 MiB of level 3 cache. This is a fast memory located close to the processor, which stores copies of frequently used data from main memory.

Power and thermals for the Intel Xeon W3580 CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 130 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
