I'm contemplating workstation upgrades (perhaps a Dell T1600), and I'd like to know what are the differences, if any, between the new Core i7 2600 and the Xeon 1280?
As far as Solidworks goes, which one would be better?
The web provides lots of info. Try this one:
Doesn't look like much of a difference. Thanks for the info!!
The Xeon is a Server processor which means it will have Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory and will be less prone to error from bit flipping. I doubt that desktop users will notice the difference, but some people claim as the line widths get smaller the chips are more prone to cosmic rays. There are some interesting reads out there if you google around.
