what is the xeon equivalent cpu for the i7-975x ?

Postby Michael REMY » Wed Dec 19, 2012 2:37 am

hi !

i proceeded some tests about performance of our firm ERP on my desktop computer.
And from the old xeon 5130, i gains 15s on the longuest task ! (during 30s on the xeon) what is a big deal !

i own a core i7-975x cpu, and i'd liek to know what is the xeon architecture and performance equivalent of it ?

Just remind my i7 is a 4xcores of 3.33GHz release in year 2009

thanks for help
Best regards,

Hi Mike,

Welcome back! :)

I am a bit confused, are you planning on buying a brand new motherboard and Xeon cpu for your workstation? And you are asking what Xeon cpu is "equivalent" in performance to your socket 1366 i7 975 X cpu ( am guessing this is your cpu in your home computer? Or primary workstation? ).

If you are planning on buying latest Ivy Bridge based Xeon that has similar performance to your i7 975x cpu, then I would suggest this might be a good choice for you:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819117284

Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Server Processor BX80637E31245V2

$279.99


Why did I pick this particular Xeon for you? Because the cheaper Ivy Bridge based Xeon's don't have any integrated graphics in them, nor do they support Hyperthreading which is important for a server cpu... this Xeon E3-1245 V2 cpu has both those features and a high clock speed and still costs under $300!! Sweet deal...

Of course you will need a new Socket 1155 mobo for it:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128548

GIGABYTE GA-H77M-D3H LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

$94.99


Good solid reliable dependable board with VGA and DVI connectors onboard...

You can spend a lot more on Socket 1366 or Socket 2011 to get "triple channel" ram, but the benefits of that over regular "dual channel" boards are very slim to none...not worth the huge price increase imho.. that is why I chose Socket 1155 for you...

I wasnt really sure what the question was either.. just went with Xeon with simmilar MHz from approximatly the same time frame.
Based this on asking for "performance equivalent".. but might have been the answer for the wrong question I realise now.

Damn, that is a VERY good pricetag for a cpu like that!
I dont think i can find a NON-Xeon at that speed and that price...
This has been an objective and completely impartial message from the propaganda bureau of DIREWOLF75. Thank you for reading. Have a nice day.

Review on this family of new Xeon cpu's:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/xeo ... ,3258.html

Based on our performance results, it’s clear that Intel’s Xeon E3-1280 v2 is a marginally-faster chip than its predecessors, the Xeon E3-1290 and -1275. The -1280 v2 operates at the same 3.6 GHz as the -1290, and stretches up to the same 4 GHz Turbo Boost limit. Both chips are quad-core parts with 8 MB of shared L3 cache and no processor graphics functionality.

In fact, it’s easier to list off the differences between them than their similarities.

There’s the Ivy Bridge architecture, most notably. The slight improvements Intel made to it confer, on average, a 3.8% speed-up at a given clock rate.

By simultaneously shifting to a 22 nm manufacturing process, Intel reduces the Xeon E3-1280 v2’s TDP by almost 30% compared to the 95 W Xeon E3-1290. In practice, across our benchmark suite, the -1280 v2 helped knock back power consumption by almost 7%. So, that’s almost 4% more performance at almost 7% less average platform power.

Now, compare where those two chips are selling. At launch, the Xeon E3-1290 was an $885 processor. The tray price on the -1280 v2 is $612—70% of the previous-generation flagship’s cost.

Upgrades are rare in the server and workstation space, so it’s highly unlikely that anyone would take a Xeon E3-1280 v2 and drop it into an existing LGA 1155-based box with an older CPU in it. However, system builders have to be happy about the prospect of a cheaper, faster, more power-efficient chip that works with existing motherboards.

I wasn’t particularly excited about Ivy Bridge in the desktop space. Meager performance improvements and disappointing overclocking made it impossible to recommend a new chip to anyone who purchased a new platform based on our endorsement of Intel’s Sandy Bridge design. But Xeon E3 targets a different customer. And the company’s entry-level server/workstation platform is more diverse than its desktop line-up based on the same design.

More than likely, integrators will shift over to second-gen Xeon E3s fairly transparently; you won’t have to make a conscious decision to seek out one of the new CPUs. But it’s good to know, once the performance data is collected and the power information compiled, that the newest LGA 1155-based Xeon chips do everything better than the models they replace, and often for a lot less money.


Win-Win!! :D

Re: what is the xeon equivalent cpu for the i7-975x ?

Postby Michael REMY » Thu Dec 20, 2012 10:57 am

thank you for your advice.

Yes, i plan to change the whole hardware (case,mb,cpu,memory,HD....).
Our server dated from 6years already !
it is in good health, but un-powered to our actual systme (specially the massive database that cannot be multithtreaded for the main tasks -this is the old postgres8 , and the erp software cannot be update (too many layer like debian, python, xml librayry, and of course postgres). So , the best way to boost all is ti change the whole hardware.

The cpu you propose is very good, but i found a better one : e5-1620 at 3.6GHz !
isn'it better ?
http://ark.intel.com/products/64621/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-1620-10M-Cache-3_60-GHz-0_0-GTs-Intel-QPI

Our old server is multisocket, but the adding one or two cpu of 6year generation will be outcost womparing a whole newarchitexcture! Specially the gate from HD to SSD who will boost the actual old scsi-raid.

I refered the i7-975 because it is the high computer i have in my relationship (my personal grphic workstation), and with it, the VM of our ERP run x2 or x5 in several task !

So as, the e5-1620 (i7-3rd generation) is at least x1.5 quicker than the i7-975 (i7 old generation), i guess this is the best choice.


No, i have to find a full manusfacturer (dell, nec, ..etc) who supply this kind of server.

How about this server then, it has the same model cpu you listed! :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6859107927

HP Z620 Workstation Rackable minitower Server System Intel Xeon E5-1620 3.6GHz 4C/8T 4GB 500GB 7200 rpm SATA NCQ Windows 7 Professional 64 B2B72UT#ABA

In stock.

Intel Xeon E5-1620 3.6GHz 4C/8T
500GB 7200 rpm SATA NCQ
800W 90% efficient wide ranging, active PFC
Windows 7 Professional 64

$1,449.99

Save: $150.00 (9%)


It only comes with 4 GB of ram but you can easily add more ram to it , it has 12 dimm slots!!!! ( max. 96 GB capacity ) , should get the job done!! 8) Add a nice fast SSD for the OS and Apps and you will be all set! :D

Nice price too..

for a server (24h/24h power on), we need raid and double power supply.

this one is a workstation.

This might be a good place for him to find what he is looking for:

http://www.serversdirect.com/

But that is an American site and he lives in France I believe... ( his email addy is a .fr domain , plus Remy is a french name, like "Remy Martin" )

Dunno. I don't have a problem driving a company car, but I want my hardware to be mine..
