Xeon E5-2680 or Dual Xeon E5649

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,
I'd like your feedback on which CPU option to go with.
I currently have a single Xeon E5-2680 (2.7GHz, 8c 16t) which does an OK job running Unraid mainly for Plex.  I have a GTX card doing transcoding.

I got a dual Xeon workstation for free which has dual E5649 CPU's (2.5GHz, 6c 12t each).

Would the higher core count of the dual CPU's be worth migrating too, or is the slightly higher clock speed of more benefit?

Assume all other parts of the machine are the same.

Thanks for your input
