xeon x5660 vs e5-2630

Hello,

we installed R720 esxi 5.1 dell customized server that replace our old R710

The r710 had X5660 CPU and the R720 have E5-2630 CPU

all other configuration and hardware are the same.

is there any reason why the R720 having hard time to catch up the R710 performance?

everything seems to work slower

Arik010,

Unfortunately that is like comparing apples to oranges. The hardware is different between the two. One uses Sandy Bridge technology the other doesn't. So it would be hard to answer that without a thorough understanding of your configuration.

Re: xeon x5660 vs e5-2630

what details about the configuration you need to know?

I thought that the newer sandy bridge should be faster
