Just as fast as my Haswel i7 stock, but lower TDP. AND CHEAPER! I went with this ivybridge model as it was faster than the haswel ones with the turbo clock. You can over clock them a little bit via the bus, but don't expect to get too much out of it. I got mine up to 3.9ghz, was trying to go for 4 but it just wasn't gonna happen. Still my fire strike score with 2 290X cards is over 15000. Not bad at all for a 200 some dollar CPU.
Locked multiplier, but meh
I wasn't sure about Xeon for gaming, but if you can live without overclocking your cpu, this thing FLYS at stock speeds. and the Case badge is just super sick seeing XEON, specially in CPU-Z
