Can someone please explain what is up with this? I've read reports that they're exactly the same. Why does Intel name them differently? Do they do it on purpose, or does the E3110 have some capabilities that the E8400 doesn't? :uhm:

I didn't make it!
AFAIK, there aren't many differences, although I'm pretty sure Xeons are geared more toward multiprocessor servers... and core2 are made more for desktop. I would stick with Core2, it appears to be a ton cheaper anyways and Core2 is a great performer.
In various reports I have read, not only is the E3110 almost exactly the same CPU as the E8400, but when running CPU-Z, it reports the E3110 as an E8400. According to Intel, the specs are all the same save for the VID voltage range - which is slightly wider on the E8400.
