All I know is the old server is a Dell PowerEdge 2950 with 32Gb of memory and a 
Clock Frequency of 1333Mhz and the new server is a Dell PowerEdge R710 with 
48Gb of memory with a Clock Frequency of 6400Mhz.  I am not sure what all that 
means though, except for memory.

Do you know the processor model number?
We recently migrated an HP DL585 G2 to a newer Dell Blade where a pair of dual 
cores (running RHEL 4U8 x86-64) was moved to a single socket, quad core Intel 
Old server had an on-die memory controller, 16 GB memory in total - likely 533 
New blade has 48 GB DDR3-1333 MHz memory. I believe that this processsor only 
supports 2 memory controller channels (per socket).
Processor is Intel Xeon X5667 3.06 GHz quad core.

I was wondering if anybody else has any experience in performance testing a 2 
CPU Dual Core vs 1 CPU Quad Core.  We need to swap out one of our Windows 
database servers to a quad core because they are not making the dual core 
anymore.  Let me know if you have any information.  Thanks in advanced.
