    Trying to build my new server, should I wait?

    I have dual E5-2697 v2 now but the single core performance just too low and multiple core adds up the power consumption is worst than A single i9-12900K, and unfortunately my case single core performance is significant, so I am wondering if there is something will go terribly wrong that I don’t...

    Will CPUs ever come to parity with GPUs for ML/AI/compute?

    I've been stuck in this quagmire for quite some time. Right now, the whole demand distribution for GPUs is out of whack: Gamers want the new hotness with 12 GB of HBM2 to play Cyberpunk Cryptominers want any and every GPU at any price to mine useless entropy (so they can buy more GPUs, of...

    EU FS: Intel Xeon E5-2697v4 – used

    I got two of these pulled from an abandoned HP DL380G9 (was a testserver). (So no ES samples) Price each 300€. Have not placed it yet on ebay. Did place it though on a few local Belgian sites. But there is only a small community for Pro stuff, so not much interest. So I thought about posting...

    PCIe lane confusion

    Hello Everyone in this fantastic forum. I've already gotten a ton of help here, but now I've run in to another question. I'm planning on building a NAS server. I want it to run Unraid as OS, but I also want a Plex Media Server running on it and probably also a website. All fine so far, then I...

    Purpose of low end SKUs

    I've been thinking about this for a while now: There are these E5-2603 (and their newer v2-4 predecessors) low end CPUs all over ebay for (sometimes) single digit prices. They aren't fast, nor do they pack any special features other than being cheap (even new they where dirt cheap compared to...

    28Core Intel Xeon-W vs 64Core AMD 7H12 EPYC

    I got a 64-core EPYC 7H12. I compare it with Intel Xeon-W3275M former my workstation CPU. First, the Xeon-W 3275M has omitted the multi-socket function and got 64-lane PCI-E. On the other hand, EPYC has 128-lane PCI-E and has high performance, so both are very attractive CPUs as Workstation...

    My humble 10Watt server put AWS EB2 to shame!

    Headlines are supposed to be dramatic and only half-truth, right :p After some talk on other threads about power-consumption, AMD, Intel and servers, I thought I'll get some real power numbers on the on-prem servers I usually setup at my customers. Some questioned the power numbers I've been...

    Gigabyte HPC Server cooling question?

    Gigabyte G482-Z50 Does anyone know, or could find out (as I think this server is pre-release), exactly how the following Gigabyte HPC server cools its CPUs? (excluding heat sinks) As you can see there are no front chassis fans, only fans behind the GPUs and at the back of the Chassis; hence my...

    E5-2687W v3 downclock?

    Hi. We need to bring the server's TDP down a bit. If it was a gaming system I would've probably reduce Vcore a bit and configured cpu power limits PPL1/3. However, this is server CPU, and I doubt it got any overclocking capabilities. Do you think there's a way to down-clock the server with...
