Intel Xeon E3-1220

9 Reasons why Intel Xeon E3-1220 is better

than the average

1.Faster CPU clock speed
4 x 3.1GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Explicitly higher PassMark result
6256vs 5515 (the average)
vs 17470 (best: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
3.Uses hyperthreading technology
Yesvs No (59% don't have it)
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.
4.Distinctly more L3 cache per core
2MB/corevs 2MB/core (the average)
vs 15MB/core (best: Intel Xeon E7-8893 v4)
More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
5.Explicitly higher PassMark result (single)
1777vs 1444 (the average)
vs 2546 (best: Intel Core i7-4790K)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
6.Supports ECC memory
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
7.Has Intel Quick Sync Video
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
This allows very fast video transcoding times, for example when ripping a DVD or Blu-ray to your computer.
8.Substantially higher clock multiplier
31vs 24 (the average)
vs 47 (best: Intel Core i7-4870HQ)
The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
9.A bit higher SSE version
4.2vs 4.1 (the average)
vs 4.2 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
