    Does anyone have a rough idea of Passmark scores in relation to one another? I.e., a e5-2590 v3 has a passmark of 19240 while a e5-2599 v3 has a passmark of 22340. Just how much faster is the 2599? a little? 5%? 50%? Is the score linear? exponential? somewhere between?

    Question for your poweredge gurus

    Is the E5-2618L V4 cpu compatible with a Poweredge R630? I recently acquired two E5-2618L V4's processors and if I put either in, the system refuses to power up with a 2.6.1 BIOS (latest). System works fine with other E5-2600 series V4 processors. Seems weird that it wouldn't work- any ideas?
