Intel Xeon processors, long a mainstay of the high end, have to some extent been supplanted by their rocket-propelled core i9 series, and even that is suffering intense competition from AMD. Machines of this sort are found running computer-aided design software, processing data sets in scientific research, and of course in the media, doing publishing, visual effects and both video and audio post production. Modern film and TV post production owe a lot of its hardware development money to video games.
Sometimes that a bit of a mistake in modern practice since the lion share of the actual computing work will happen on a graphics card or two, but let pick two comparable CPUs and get into the details of that comparison. That means the ability to set clock speeds over what the company….
