Has anybody seen any reviews comparing a single quad-core CPU against 2 dual core CPUs in servers? I'm trying to figure out how much cash you save by going with the single CPU but also how much horsepower you lose. Given that this server should be in production for around 5 years before it gets a refresh, which is the better option, anybody got any ideas? and know of any reviews? Tom's hardware has 2 Quad vs 2 Dual but that's all I can seem to find.
Quadcore should do it, One ship 4 cores = better perfomance distribution
