im new to this Forum and i have a question who bores me a lot.
We try to get a new CAD Desktop.
Our Dell Support offered us a i7 and a Xeon, and he also meant the Xeon would be better because of the gt/s.
In all tests the i7 870 was much better than the Xeon e5503. (Xeon 4,8 gt/s - i7860 2,5 gt/s)
Aswell i dont get it. On a x55 Chipset Screenshot from intel, it says: "intel i7 family QPI" which should be much better than the FSB.
I dont get what the gt's is, and what it does. I was always focused on the mhz and cache. What makes the Xeon better ? And why has the i870 no QPI on the Intel page?.
