evrybody talk abou i7 and xeon as the best choise for workstation but i know xeon is for server purposes, so i have had the doubt in what to choose cause i think servers are good to canalize information, not to procesing it. Am I rigth? And of course i'm talking about revit. Which one is better? Want you please help me in any way?

I have benchmarked a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz VS Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1620  @ 3.60GHz

 

The Xeon was the winner and that particular machine has the option to add another processor.

the AMD opteron 6200 series is an option in that power range but you'll spend twice the money on one of those and i believe they only have single processor abilities but dont quote me on that

Although I can't comment on the i7, I've been running dual quad core xenons for a year or so, and my machine chew revit up and spits it out.  In a good way.

i would say its all about the bang for ur Bucks. 

i have now a I7 3930K 

cinebench 13.26 pts (OC ) 

(price 520 euro ) 

Xeon E5-2687W price 1.800 euro  result 13.07 (stock ) 

if you want a cinebench 20+ score than you wil need a dual xenon motherboard. (3.600 euro) just for cpu. 

than u will have a monster system. 

or be happy with single a OC I7 for just 520 euro.

i7 is your only choice in a Laptop.

 

Xeon is your only choice if you are serious about Revit.  The Xeon is built to handle ECC memory btw, I do NOT believe (don't quote me) that the i7 is even capable of ECC memory...?
