Xeon cheper than i7? Tags: CPUs Xeon Intel i7 Last response: January 14, 2013 7:00 PM in CPUs Share plivnik46 January 14, 2013 5:55:14 PM Hello, I saw a Xeon E3-1230v2, which has 4 Ivy bridge cores with Hyperthreading @3,3 GHz and an i7 also with 4 IB cores with HT @3,4 GHz, but about $80 more expensive. So the question is why is the xeon so much cheaper if it is just 100 MHz slower?

The i7 that you mention I believe is i7 2600K, which would allow you to overclock it. The xeon allows ECC memory. http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2196434 http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E3-1... http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/479/Intel_Core_i7_i7-2...
