2x $150 for e5 2658Hi Guys,
Xeon Processor E5-2643v2 QS CPU 3.5GHz 6-Core 25M Max 3.8GHz
Xeon Processor E5-2697 v4 ES LGA2011-3 18-Core 2.2GHz Max 2.6GHz
Xeon Processor E5-2697 v2 QS LGA2011 12-Core 2.7Ghz Max 3.0GHz
Xeon Processor E5-2695 V2 QS 2.4Ghz 30MB L3 12-Core Max Turbo 3.2GGhz
Xeon Processor E5-2683 V3 OEM 2.0Ghz 35MB L3 14 Core Max Turbo 3.0Ghz
I am looking for a balance of cores and speed for purely after effects/editing rig.
The problem is it's hard to get >16 cores with above 3.0Ghz.
Based on my research after 16 cores you do not see improvement that much.
After Effects 2014(Allows Multithreading) - 0% improvement after 16 cores
If you find some please let me know and my budget is around $600 for the cpu.
$300 for dual cpu board.
$600 total. 24 cores/48 threads
I doubt, you'll ever find single cpu with 16 cores@3ghz, even 8cores@3ghz+ for $600.
Ill keep an eye on discussion. I'm interested in getting similar
