Intel Xeon E3 V2 Series: An interesting alternative to the Core of 3rd generation

Intel Xeon E3 V2 Series: An interesting alternative to the Core of 3rd generation

On 23 April this year, launched its new core third generation known by its code name Ivy Bridge and Ivy Bridge-DT-MB , release was followed shortly by microprocessors Xeon E3 Series V2 also based on the Ivy Bridge-DT, the latter microprocessors with its list price makes it an interesting option for users, as we point out those 3DCenter.

microprocessors E3 V2 Series to be based on the same core Core microprocessors used in third generation, in theory are compatible with most of the motherboard socket lga 1155 (provided the manufacturer has published in-law updates Bios needed for compatibility), a fact that puts them in direct competition with his brothers focused on desktop users, but as we know, the line of Xeon microprocessors E3 V2 Series is aimed at workstations and servers economy.

Among the E3 V2 Series Xeon microprocessors, undoubtedly the most interesting are the CPUs that come with the IGP disabled, property not used by many users cardholders video dedicated to them without doubt the Xeon E3-1230 V2 (quad core at 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo, hyperthreading, TDP of 69W and an MSRP of U.S. $215) stands as the cheaper alternative from Intel that provides eight simultaneous processing threads, thanks to hyperthreading (HT), at a price cheaper than the microprocessor Core i5-3570K (U.S. $ 230).

It is noteworthy that some applications take good advantage of hyperthreading , so these chips become a very interesting alternative, high performance for users who need to run applications that exploit the parallelism offered by these chips.

Other interesting products are the Xeon E3-1240 V2 (quad core at 3.4GHz, 3.8GHz Turbo, hyperthreading, TDP of 69W and an MSRP of U.S. $ 250) and Xeon E3-1270 V2 (quad core at 3.5GHz, Turbo 3.9GHz, HyperThreading technology, TDP of 69W and an MSRP of U.S. $ 328), which sounds like an interesting alternative to the microprocessor Core i7-3770 (U.S. $294).
