Great proc

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Not a huge concern but a note for any Intel process engineers that happen to be reading this.. both chips had cardboard fibers inside the final plastic packaging tray, and under the pins.
  • Pros: Have two installed in a moderately busy web server and very pleased with performance. Running a stack of VMs. Boot swarms are no longer a problem.
  • Cons: Intel needs to be a bit more forthcoming about their advertising here. A 3.9 turbo assumes you've only activated one core in the bios. With all cores active, turbo is only 3.3.

worth it?

  • Summary: I bought 2 for quantum calculations and am not disappointed. I have one on an ATX sabertooth x79, 64gb of 1866mhz vengeance and an H100. The other is on an mATX Asus rampage IV gene with 32GB of 1866mhz Dominatior. Big question: why did I buy it?
  • Pros: low TDP excellent performance can handle quad channel ram
  • Cons: Cost: the Xeon 2687W (150w TDP) is 1-5% faster, depending on your benchmark and prices at ~$1,800 rather than ~2,000 The reason this processor costs more than the 2687W is the TDP, which makes a big difference in air cooled server environment.

Schnell aber Teuer die 2689 ist die bessere Alternative

  • Summary: Die CPU ist laut Intel die Speerspitze und dementsprechend Teuer. Die Alternative ist die E5/2689 CPU aus der OEM Serie die ist noch einen Tick besser und braucht weniger Strom.

Does not support fma4 or avx2

  • Summary: The money intel asks weighted against the performance gain compared to 2670 is too high. Also the processor does not support avx2 and fma4. Still the best out there at the moment for Scientific work (thanks to still underperforming AMD on this front )
