Intel Core i7-3930K vs Xeon X5482

Mini Review

Intel Core i7-3930K advantages

  • The Core i7-3930K incorporates more processing cores than the Xeon X5482. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to process multiple threads or applications at once.
  • One of the distinctive features of the Core i7-3930K processor is Hyper-Threading technology, which doubles the number of threads that the CPU can execute simultaneously.
  • The processor includes SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The i7-3930K microprocessor supports AES technology, used to accelerate AES encryption and decryption. The instructions are valuable if you run programs, that protect your disk or network data.
  • The CPU features AVX instructions, that were introduced in the recent past. Although these extensions are not broadly used by applications yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The processor has unlocked clock multiplier. The microprocessor can be effortlessly overclocked on most motherboards when higher performance is needed.
  • The i7-3930K is 13% more energy efficient.
  • Intel actively supports Socket 2011, used by the processor, and plans to release new processors for the socket in the future.

i7-3930K vs X5482 specifications comparison

The graphs below show the difference between Intel Xeon X5482 and Core i7-3930K most important characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for extra frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
