|Thanks, it is clear that integrated Intel graphics is way down the list from|
so in general an i7 + GTX will give better 3D graphics performance
than an i7 with integrated graphics, data processing will be the same
and cost will depend on the CPU / GPU combination.
As for data processing the Passmark from http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_en...
is useful, the top spots are all Xeon or i7 down to the top
AMD FX-9590 and from the Price / Price Performance
chart we can pick 4 'contenders':
Intel Core i7-4930K or Intel Core i7-3930K
Intel Xeon E5-1650
I assume the AMD + GTX will have 'like for like' performance
(data processing and graphics) compared to an i7 + GTX, but
how does it compare with a Xeon?
If a Xeon with integrated graphics exist will it be way down
the list like the i7?
Will the Xeon E5-1650 + GTX be comparable to say, the i7-3930K
Under what conditions will a dual CPU system give better
performance for a graphics workstation?
