Intel Xeon E3-1230

11 Reasons why Intel Xeon E3-1230 is better

than the average

1.Faster CPU clock speed
4 x 3.2GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Explicitly more CPU threads
8vs 7 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E7-8890 v4)
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Considerably higher PassMark result
8149vs 5515 (the average)
vs 17470 (best: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
4.Marginally higher turbo clock speed
3.3GHzvs 3.3GHz (the average)
vs 5GHz (best: AMD FX-9590)
When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
5.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.
6.Clearly more transistors
2270 millionvs 1458 million (the average)
vs 7100 million (best: Nvidia Tegra K1 (64-bit))
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
7.Appreciably 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.
8.Explicitly higher PassMark result (single)
1833vs 1444 (the average)
vs 2546 (best: Intel Core i7-4790K)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using a single thread.
9.Sizably higher PassMark result (overclocked)
8617vs 7138 (the average)
vs 18948 (best: Intel Core i7-5960X)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU whilst it is overclocked.
10.Notably higher clock multiplier
32vs 24 (the average)
vs 47 (best: Intel Core i7-4870HQ)
The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
11.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.
