||Xeon E3-1225 v2 is a Server Processor based on the 22nm, Ivy Bridge architecture. <br/> <br/>
It offers 4 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 3.2GHz, which may go up to 3.6GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache. <br/>
Among its many features, <b>Turbo Boost and Virtualization</b> are activated. <br/> <br/>
The processor integrates mildly powerful Graphics called <b>Intel HD Graphics P4000</b>, with 20 Execution Units, initially clocked at 650MHz and that go up to 1250MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor. <br/>
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 77W. <br/> <br/>
Though not created for gaming purposes, its performance is very good and sufficient for any of today's games.
||For Socket F and Socket AM2 Opterons, each chip has a four-digit model number, in the form Opteron XZYY. For all Opterons, the first digit (the X) specifies the number of CPUs on the target machine:<br />
1 - Designed for uniprocessor systems<br />
2 - Designed for dual-processor systems<br />
8 - Designed for systems with 4 or 8 processors<br />
For Socket F and Socket AM2 Opterons, the second digit (the Z) represents the processor generation. Presently, only 2 (dual-core), DDR2, 3 (quad-core) and 4 (six-core) are used.<br />
For all Opterons, the last two digits in the model number (the YY) indicate the clock frequency of a CPU, a higher number indicating a higher clock frequency. This speed indication is comparable to processors of the same generation if they have the same amount of cores, single-cores and dual-cores have different indications despite sometimes having the same clock frequency.<br />
The suffix HE or EE indicates a high-efficiency/energy-efficiency model having a lower TDP than a standard Opteron. The suffix SE indicates a top-of-the-line model having a higher TDP than a standard Opteron.
