Xeons traditionally excel at floating point operations, which is good for 3d rendering.

The last several generations of Xeon are the exact same architecture as the desktop processors so I'm not sure how far back you are talking. i7 also excel at Floating point.

I saw that as I was searching around for some numbers after my post, but it was too late to edit. I stand corrected.

When I was reasearching my very first gen i7's workstations, I  recall that i7's were faster for HD video and streaming media, while xeons were better for 3d due to their floating point performance and I guess I always thought was still the case. We generally go for i7's with quadros.
