Type CPU / Microprocessor. CPU part number. E5-2696 v2. The number of CPU cores 12. Floating Point Unit Integrated. Level 1 cache size?. 12 x 32 KB 8-way set associative instruction caches. 12 x 32 KB 8-way set associative data caches.
one of the best 2011 v2 cpu at great price. Two of these gives the same multicore performance as one 1950X and slightly faster than one 3900X.
Just make sure your dual cpu or single cpu MB allows oem cpu because this is one of those oem cpu. The non oem 2697 v2 has more compatibility but is a lot more expensive at around $220+
This CPU will not work with intel s2600 or lenovo S30. It will work with supermicro MB, lenovo D30, and asus z9pe series and the chinese x79 MB.
Edit: Price has gone down to $124. And make offer is also allowed now so you can get this at even lower price.
