i7-3770 vs E3-1240 v2 specifications comparison

The graphs below show the difference between Intel Xeon E3-1240 v2 and Core i7-3770 most important characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while 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. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
