Please let me know the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 that you have in mind so I can compare the features of that processor with the Intel Core i7-3960X.

You can also go to this link to compare a group of processors:

Please check this comparison chart:

http://ark.intel.com/compare/64595,63696 http://ark.intel.com/compare/64595,63696

The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2670 has a slower clock speed, but it has more cores and higher cache RAM, also it has faster system bus, so the performance in a multi-tasking environment will be better than the Intel® Core i7-3960X processor.

Please make sure that the software that you will be running is designed for multi-tasking environment, so the software is capable of taking full advantage of the all the cores of the processor.

Does anyone have input or feedback on a Xeon E3 vs i7 for statistical analysis -- matlab and stata? I am leaning towards the Xeon.
