Not really, but a quick look at the Intel site has some info on the
basic specs - looking at the released versions only these two have the
fastest clocks and equal number of cores (6):
So the E5 has slightly larger cache, faster QPI, higher TDP,
can address more RAM and same RRP.. ;-)
Caveat: in the past I've found howlers on the ARK Intel site,
so validate any info with external sources!
