Intel E6300 vs. Intel Xeon 3040

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, what's your take on the Intel E6300 vs. Intel Xeon 3040? In general the Xeon series can take a good beating... does this mean that something like the 3040, could be overclocked more in general under the same conditions as the E6300. Both are 65nm Conroe chips, and as far as I can tell, the specs are EXACTLY the same... Is it worth the ~$20 extra? Has anyone tried, or heard anything about the new Conroe Xeon line?

Thanks!

The Conroe Xeon and the Conroe Core 2 are identical.

However due to additional interfacing ability Xeon's have always been able to outstrip a desktop based processor at mathematical calculations. It is the same in this case also with Conroe vs. Woodcrest (and equivalent).

Xeon's are based (instruction/algorithm/thread) around processing mathematical and numerical data at speeds above that of their desktop counterparts regardless of clock speed (to a degree).

Conroe and Woodcrest are “identical” apart from the slight tweaking of instructions

What about overclocking for example? Are they not slightly better CPU's?
