2nd cheapest 4-core 2-way LGA2011 Xeon, but 2nd slowest as well. Adequate.

Summary: The specific instance I have is a 2.3GHz odd-ball (matching no production part's exact specification) engineering sample. It easily performs within a few percentage points of the production 2.4GHz part, and does not have any critical defects. Great choice of processor for any entry level server, as it's just fast enough to make good use of the massive memory bandwidth/capacity and IO capabilities.
