Intel Xeon X3350 vs L3360
Comparing Xeon X3350 and Xeon L3360 processor market type (desktop or notebook), architecture, sales start time and price.
Xeon X3350 and Xeon L3360 basic parameters such as number of cores, number of threads, base frequency and turbo boost clock, lithography, cache size and multiplier lock state. These parameters indirectly say of CPU speed, though for more precise assessment you have to consider their test results.
Information on Xeon X3350 and Xeon L3360 compatibility with other computer components: motherboard (look for socket type), power supply unit (look for power consumption) etc. Useful when planning a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. Note that power consumption of some processors can well exceed their nominal TDP, even without overclocking. Some can even double their declared thermals given that the motherboard allows to tune the CPU power parameters.
