Computing technology continues to improve year on year, and there is always something new just around the corner. But if you need a new CAD workstation it does not make commercial sense to keep waiting as your productivity will be reduced.
However it's not as simple as buying a new home computer as there are many different factors to consider, for example what CAD software you may be using, or how complex are your data sets and so on.
A big question frequently asked is should I buy a CAD workstation with a Xeon Processor or even an i7, i5 or i3? Opinion will vary of course but most savvy purchasers and IT professionals will avoid i3 and i5 from the outset, and it would be hard to come up with a valid argument to that decision.
So this then leaves the great Xeon vs i7 debate, which processor should you buy and is there really any difference between the two? The answer is a definitive yes! So to help workstation buyers understand the principal differences we have added an article detailing some of the differences between Xeon versus i7 processors to our Cad workstation guide.
