Reasonably priced 13600T and 13700t available here:
my order for a 13600t came out to around $330 shipped to the US. Anyone have experience buying from quietpc.com in the UK? I guess I’m at...
Any benefit to a 13500 over a 13600k in terms of power consumption? I was about to checkout with the 13500 and then saw that my local micro center has the 13600k in stock for $250. They don’t have the 13500 in stock which makes me wonder where that will be priced if/when they receive them
I'm in the market for one of the beefier supermicro Xeon D or AMD 1U superservers with 10gbe ports on the front. This will be for a pfsense build for high-throughput inter-vlan routing.
Something along the lines of the 4 or 8 core 5018D/5019D models would be excellent.
sweet! just grabbed one!
just as an FYI, i'm pretty sure the X9DRD-7LN4F-JBOD unofficially supports PCIE bifurcation with BIOS v3.3+.
this will make a nice spare/replacement for my current X9DR7-LN4F-JBOD as it's essentially the same board but it has two 16x pcie slots and no bifurcation...
My RMA request for that memory issue I was having was approved by SMCI today. The request also included information about bifurcation not working despite being in the BIOS.
Curious to see what happens with that.
Likewise, which is why I was holding out for bifurcation support. I suspect i'd never notice, but still... seems silly my board won't bifurcate, especially after comparing my screenshots with the ones a few posts up.
I'll reach out to SM support early next week to see what they have to say...
heh. mine look almost identical, except the bifurcation settings don't change (see pics).
you are right. that leaves only the two. I wonder at which point the PLX chip begins to bottleneck with a 4 slot card like the AOC-SLG3-4E2P? I assume rather quickly in a x8 slot.
I'm rebuilding my ZFS...
