i've been researching through internet and found i7 880 and xeon x3480 wondering what's different between them and which one is better to pick in gaming performance! - (send help)
Yep! Intel did this a few times in its history just taking a xeon and slapping a i-series model on it and stating that it specifically didn't come with an igpu.https://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/96/Intel_Core_i7_i7-880_vs_Intel_Xeon_X3480.html
basically the same cpu.
