Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2697 v2: 24 threads, 2.7-3.5GHz, 30MB SmartCache, 22nm.
Intel® Core™ i7-4960X: 12 threads, 3.6-4GHz, 15MB SmartCache, 22nm.
Straight of the bat, you would say Intel® Xeon® is better. But if I look at frequencies, I'm not sure anymore.
Which is "powerfuller"? Xeon or i7? In given case.
