Intel Xeon E7-8870 (older Nehalem) and the 2600K (Sandy Bridge) are different sockets and different technologies that come with.
Xeon you selected is a quad channel RAM requiring a LGA1567 set-up..
that's already outdated and no longer in production.
so unless you have the hardware already buying that now is a waste of money and your time..
Ok so if you wanna compare core i7 2600k with a xeon in Video Transcoding: MPEG-2 to H.264
and Video Transcoding: MPEG-2 to H.264/AVC
which Version of Xeon do you recommend ?
is there a intel processor that works better than i7 in video tanscoding ?
