Here's an STH article from 2017 comparing several v3 and v4 processors in a Lenovo server. At the time Patrick seemed impressed with power consumption improvements in the 14nm v4s over the 22nm v3s. Two 14-core E5-2690 v4s idled in that setup at 79 watts and used 278 watts under 70% load. Today, the v3s sell for less than half of similar v4 processors....probably because of the differences in power consumption.Anyone compared idle of these vs 2697 v3 and 2699 v3 ?
what about overall performance in real-world not just pasmark worth the upgrade?
That's... weird? it seems like it should be a supported CPU. Wait it this one of those weird system integrator only cpus?
oh that's emazing. Is that listing still available? That price is still within "impulse buy" territory for me!Picked up a pair of 2680 v4 last month for $45 each; they were mislabelled as 2640! In a X10DRH.
Agreed. It's a good idea to check the benchmarking sites to see if the processor and other components work with your board/system before purchase. With a cursory search, I see the E5-2696 v4 working with X10DRG-Q, X10SRA and X10DAI boards but not the X10SRL-F. The benchmarking sites aren't foolproof but a working model system is a good indication.
I believe the 2696 is a Dell OEM version of the 2699 with slightly higher single core turbo. Supposedly good compatibility with anything that supports the 2699, but yeah take it with a grain of salt and do research prior to purchase.Wait it this one of those weird system integrator only cpus?
That board only supports processors with up to 145W TDP. The 2696 v4 is 150W. It works with other Supermicro boards that support higher TDP CPUs.
Not accepting < $200 now, came back at $215. Tried to buy 10Prices on the 22-core 2.2GHz OEM E5-2696 v4 are falling rapidly on e-bay - you can get one for less than $200. Just last month they were over $300. It's locked but can turbo all cores at 2.8GHz and 1/2 cores at 3.7GHz.
