  1. Hi,
    I want to host 2 to 3 server using bungee for total ~400 players.

    CPU Benchmark say the Xeon E3 1245v2 is more powerfull on one thread (1995 "point") than Xeon E5-1620 with 1929 point.
    But, CPU Boss say i have around 10% higher clock speed and around 30% more l3 cache per core for Xeon E5-1620 than Xeon E3 1245v2. They dont have benchmark for single core thread.

    What do you think is best?
  2. It's just 2-3 servers, go for the E3

    Do you have 400 players or is that your goal, regardless get the E3.
    If you need more than you can always upgrade the following month.
