i7 vs Xeon for processing and 3D graphics performance

October 15, 2013 at 07:27:48
Specs: Widows 7 64bit
I'd like to compare both the data processing and 3D graphics
performance of systems based on Intel i7 and Xeon E5 processors,
with either integrated graphics or an Nvidia GTX card, eg.:

i7 integrated graphics
i7 + GTX

Xeon E5 single CPU, integrated graphics
Xeon E5 + GTX

Xeon E5 dual CPU, integrated graphics
Xeon E5 dual + GTX

System components are common otherwise eg. 64Gb RAM,
raid 0 160Gb SSD.

You didn't provide any model numbers for the CPUs or graphics so any answer you get will be general rather than specific.

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
AMD FX-9590

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
+ GTX?

Under what conditions will a dual CPU system give better
performance for a graphics workstation?
