I can’t say much about actual intel dates due to NDA but I would speculate imminent is not the word I wound use, later in 2019 I think would be a more accurate time, but of course can be sure just how much silicon the big guys get long way before corporates. Regular corporate enterprise certainly not until later in 2019.When do you all speculate that we may see haswell and broadwell processors flood the used/refurb market, the way the E5-2670 did when it's price went down to around ~$50 ea? I'm assuming a mass corporate refresh to intel scalable is imminent
Would consumer grade DDR4 be an indicator of what enterprise memory would do?Especially since memory prices still haven't come all the way back down--the cost to replace memory that was bought cheap a few years back makes replacing those systems extremely unappealing if they're working fine as-is. If memory prices fall a lot in 2019 then new DDR4 deployments will look a lot more attractive.)
Exactly. Those are the ones I've been buying too for <$300 for the last 6 months.I just picked up an E5-2680v3 for $275 and I think that was a solid deal. However, I already had the DDR4 RAM to pair with it and that's definitely the barrier for most right now.
this one? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicat...2265&cjevent=051b0ac026ee11e98280027b0a24060fI got a couple of e5-2630 V4's any thoughts on cheap mobo's that can run them?
I saw this, but there's no indication as to whether it includes the CPU riser for the second CPU. Given only one CPU is included, I didn't take the plunge.
