Title: E5-2690 OC
Post by: splerdu on April 28, 2018, 12:44:01 AM
Got an E5-2690 because DDR4 is asspensive lol. First observation is man, Intel binned these things REALLY WELL. Runs very cool and quiet, voltages are much lower compared to lesser Xeons, let alone retail i7s.



4GHz and super low voltages lol (jk CPU-Z just a little slow on the readout. It's actually at 1.164V)

16 threads of Prime95 small ffts and it's barely above 70C

3-4 core turbo is around ~3.8GHz. Should be good enough to game. Package power is < 20W when idle.

my workstation is an HP Xeon E51620 - 3.60Ghz 8 core (daw)
it runs really slow now, opening or even closing apps takes a lot os seconds.
I was expecting a snappy workstation but in the end it leaves me hangging in the air
it was configured & tested by our MIS dept twice already.

^ E5-1620 (https://ark.intel.com/products/64621/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-1620-10M-Cache-3_60-GHz-0_0-GTs-Intel-QPI) is a quad core, the equivalent of the i7-3820. "Snappiness" specially when you speak about load and response times is more reliant on fast storage than CPU. Is your workstation still on spinning rust? An SSD makes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j84eEjP-RL4) a huge (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dEsTiOeMQ4) difference (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBnGYCEIrxw).
