While there were a couple of blips in the performance of the Xeon E5-2670, these were mainly in older, less multi-threaded benchmarks, which are arenas best suited to more mainstream CPUs. The Xeon E5-2670 performed excellently in the types of...
Overall, the dual Intel Xeon E5-2670 is a solid setup that shows a lot of performance potential. It is a midrange part so it will not capture any performance crowns. On the other hand, it is $500 less expensive per processor than the next speed step up....
While even Intel now admits that clock speed isn't everything, there are workloads where high frequency processors are favoured over those with more cores running at lower frequencies. One of the use-cases both AMD and Intel provide is high...
