40% slower.
it will be slower in single threaded applications but faster in multi-threaded applications. Here's an example using Geekbench:


hi all, i am new here

do you guys have experience with motherboard evga x99 micro?
does it have compabilities issues with xeon v4 es?

i have a plan to buy xeon e5 2680 v4 es

sorry for my bad english

thank you
For EVGA you should probably look for a QS sample for best compatibility or a production sample.

In sintetic benchmarks 2698 V4 is about 48 % faster. I am asking in real apps ???

If the application can take advantage of the multi-threaded nature of the cores and isn't clock speed reliant then yes it will be faster. However if it is single-threaded and clock speed dependent it will be slower.

Hi guys,

We are thinking of upgrading our render farm (using 3dsmax and Vray) and we are thinking of doing it through the use of ES CPUs.

I was thinking of getting either :
there are 2 version of 2690V4, QH2M turbo all core 2500MHz (1600cb) and QHV5 3000MHz (2100cb). with same price and speed I suggest 2683 V3 oem instead of QH2M.

Hi everyone!

I started mounting my new rig with Asus Z10PE D16 WS, double E5-2683 V3... First problem : I thought the Asus MB could accept non-ECC RAM, it looks like it's not the case, I'm stuck with B1 QCode at booting. My RAM is G.Skill RipJaws 4 - F4-2400C15Q. Even with only 1 stick in I can't boot. Normal? Should I buy ECC RAM (must I?)...?

The CPUs don't share memory, hence one stick won't boot two CPUs. This should be in your Asus manual.

The ASUS X99 WS supports the B0/M0/R0 stepping only for Xeon V4 processors and that means QS or production only. It doesn't support earlier steppings.

I'm looking for a CPU for workstation/gaming/development/compression use. What do people think about the 2689 V4 QK7Z ?

Thanks for the answer CookiesLikeWhoa, this helped a lot. My RAM was not registered. I just ordered new one - ECC and registered. Didn't even cost a lot more. Rookie mistake.

Thank You! This info is very useful for us. Can I use G.skill 3200 MHz with XEON CPU ? Or it is absolutely needed ECC memory ?
