Solved Xeon E3-1240v2 vs i5 4670k for gaming? Tags: Gaming Xeon E3 Intel i5 CPUs Last response: October 20, 2013 1:37 AM in CPUs Share hefas October 19, 2013 11:24:09 PM Hi, I tried to find the answer, but still not considered either way. Can anyone please clear my doubts More about : xeon 1240v2 4670k gaming Best solution Gaidax a b à CPUs October 19, 2013 11:33:26 PM I'd take Xeon, however be aware that you can't overclock it and it has no QuickSync support. If either is not a concern then Xeon is better. Notice that I5-4670 non-K could be 40-50$ cheaper yet would give you anywhere between 90 to 100% of that Xeon 's performance depending on usage and you could put that cash towards a better GPU. Share hefas October 19, 2013 11:39:01 PM That's my concern, to take 4670k+z87 mobo or for same price to take xenon+cheaper mobo. By the way, what mobo would go ok with xenon + gtx 760 2gb? m 0 l Related resources Intel Xeon E3-1230 v3 vs Core i5 4670K for games? - Forum I5 4670K vs Xeon E3-1230 V3 - Forum Intel Xeon vs Intel core i5 4670k - Forum Xeon E3 or i5 4670k for gaming? - Forum i5 4670k vs Intel® Xeon® E3-1245V2 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Of course, it is not a feature that most people really need, so it's easy to skip it and be just fine. As for your motherboard support question - best way us to go to the motherboard's manufacturer site and check CPU support tab. m 0 l Gaidax a b à CPUs October 19, 2013 11:53:00 PM Quick Sync is Intel's technology that is used by certain programs for video encoding, it significantly reduces time required to create a video.
