Not v2 but, at aliexpress e5-2690 is $88,65 for real budgeters! 8 cores, all core turbo bin is 4, so all core frequency is 3300MHz....
Can you explain the turbo thing? I've been looking for v2's for my ml350p, but your linked item is tempting. Kind of regretting the 1650v2 I purchased for my z420 as well...

@posternutbag and the question you are asking:

Xeon E5-1650v2 is 6 x 3600 = 21600
Xeon E5-2690 is 8 x 3300 = 26400

26400 / 21600 = 1.2222222... times Xeon E5-2690 is faster than Xeon E5-1650v2.

@posternutbag

But there are other things as you know. Xeon E5-1650v2 is overclockable. Both of those processsors consume 130Watts. If you overclock Xeon E5-1650v2 to catch, 3600 x 1.22222... you must have to run it at 4400MHz, that is quite high! You need a big, at least 250 Watt cooler, with a lot of noise probably.

Personally, I can advice you, Xeon E5-2658 v2 that I have 2 pieces. It runs max 2600MHz with 10 cores, but consumes 95Watts only. A real silent CPU, but a bit more expensive....

people tend to over-inflate prices when selling on STH. not sure why. maybe too big an audience. I never buy here. always cheaper elsewhere.

The Guy is not even factoring in eBay fees and time spent on listing. It's just sad to see.
