I am going to buy 3d graphic rendering system, i have two choice in cpu. -Xeon Processor E5-2620 (single) -Intel Core™ i7-3930K (single) please help me out which is better.i7 or xeon.its help me great if some one explain me how overclocking and cores works in rendering. I am working on following software's Maya 2012 3ds max 2010 Thanks More about : xeon 2620 intel core 3930k rendering graphics amuffin a c 185 à CPUs August 13, 2012 6:56:42 PM The 3930K, they both run on the same architecture but the 3930K is clocked 1ghz higher. m 0 l vishalnagar August 13, 2012 6:59:27 PM so do you think i7 is better then xeon in rendering m 0 l Related resources Intel i7-3770k v.s.
