Intel Xeon E3-1220 

Released April, 2011
  • 3.1 GHz
  • Quad core
7.2 Out of 10

High floating point performance, MHz and IPC wins in the single thread version, whereas the multithread version has to handle the threads and loves more cores.
by Ian-Cutress (Nov, 2014)
The price difference between the 14 core model and the 16 core model is nearly $1000, making budgets and workloads being important factors in this decision.
