post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Wondering if anyone can find more info about these two chips.. tried some google searching, not really helpful besides finding out that they are both Sandy Bridge quad cores, 8 hyper threading

Xeon E3-1225 (server) starts at 3.1ghz, 1MB L2, 6MB L3

i7 2600 (desktop) starts at 3.4ghz, turbo up to 3.8, 1MB L2, 8MB L3

its a "business" that I'm buying for, and their Dell access doesn't have XPS(since its a consumer brand). Also, I tend to prefer workstations... they're less of a hassle to deal with(workstation = better support, materials than XPS consumer)

and the Xeon's architecture is SandyBridge as well
