Sorry, but your result of 24000+ kN/s is useless, because your CPU-Z shows that you have Hyper-Threading enabled, and as Sedat Canbaz says, HT may increase your kN/s speed, but Houdini performance decreases if HT is enabled !
I myself get speeds of 20530 + kN/s in Fritz benchmark with my 3930k @ 4.8 GHz, with HT disabled.

Sorry, but where can I disabled/enabled Hyper-Threading in my CPU?
I use Fritz 13 and Houdini engine.

I got an idea of what the HT really is but I still don't know exactly how I can turn off this feature on my CPU.

I don't have much knowledge about computers and I'm afraid I'll do something wrong...

I have a i7 3960x processor with 6 cores (12 threads). I use fritz 13 with Houdini 2.0c engine.
How many core should I use? The 6 cores or all 12 threads(or 11)?

6 cores.
Disable HT in BIOS itself.

Which processor is faster, i7 or Xeon?

descriptionIntel Core i7-3960x EmptyRe: Intel Core i7-3960x

Hi
I suppose you could say that the Xeon is faster, but then only if you have dual or quad Xeons. I think also you will require more than 1 PSU and Power Supplies, but I'm not sure about this.
Also, you will require a special Motherboard, which can support 2 or more Xeons.
Your Electric Bill and the heat produced will be very high.....messy, in my opinion.
I personally prefer to go the I7 route. I simply buy the fastest single I7 Processor in the market and overclock it.
For instance, right now I'm running the I7 3930 K overclocked to 4.8 GHz and am very happy with its performance. The Kn/s speed is more than 20,000 kN/s and I'm unbeaten in all my Matches with Xeon users.
Next year, when the 6 core or 8 core Intel Ivy Bridge E Processors are released, I will buy that and so on.

Thank you for the detailed explanation. I was going to get one, but once I heard news about Ivy Bridge being in production I'll be changing my mind now.
