Features Key features of the Xeon E3-1230 v3  vs Core i5 4670 

clock speed

Xeon E3-1230 v3
3.3 GHz
Core i5 4670
3.4 GHz
Turbo state limiting uniformly caps the maximum number of turbo states for all cores.

turbo clock speed

Xeon E3-1230 v3
3.7 GHz
Core i5 4670
3.8 GHz
Power Management has changed from same P-states for all cores, same core and uncore frequency to: Per-core P-States with independent uncore frequency scaling, and energy efficient turbo boost.
Xeon E3-1230 v3 | by William-Harmon (Sep, 2014)

L3 cache

The result is lower cache-to-cache transfer latencies, and reduced directory updates and reads of hotly contested lines.
Xeon E3-1230 v3 | by William-Harmon (Sep, 2014)

TDP

On the clock frequency side, we aren’t looking at the 18 or 14 core chips to be clocked high from 3 to 3.3 GHz but the 10-12 core variants have the probability of featuring speeds as high as 4 GHz with lower TDPs.
