Re: Xeon Processor Vs i7 Processor
The Xeon is usually made from a better grade of Silicon. This usually means that all the cpu's are more likely to be identical to each other. Because of this closer tolerance the cpu's are able to work in a dual configuration. The Xeon's are usually good overclockers but your paying a big premium if your not building a dual cpu system. The 980X is basically a Xeon without dual cpu support, and the 980X does have an unlocked Multiplier, which should prove more useful in a Desktop PC.
