No, your post really isn't relevant. It's generally regarded to be in poor form to pitch your own stuff here. That is what the FS section is for. Feel free to PM one of the mods if you disagree.lol. who comes up with these rules?
The post is "relevant" because we're talking about 2696's.
It is not a rule I expect to be enforced. It is just my own understanding of the purpose of this subforum.who comes up with these rules?
Show us where you can get this CPU (2696 v3) for substantially lower price. Keep in mind most if not all eBay sellers are non-US. E5-2697 v3 is 14-core, 2696 v3 is 18-core.$777 for that CPU is over priced for ebay, and especially here. People don't take kindly to seeing prices 100$s over ebay
Aside from that pricing... the E5-2697 is $350-450 the last 12 months with better pricing here or there, on ebay... not a "Great Deal" this CPU has 1000 less passmark than yours, and higher single-core rating but is full retail, not ES and not QS.
This is a current listing for the 2699 v3 18 core 2.3-3.6ghz for $597 from a US seller right now: E5-2699v3 | eBayShow us where you can get this CPU (2696 v3) for substantially lower price. Keep in mind most if not all eBay sellers are non-US. E5-2697 v3 is 14-core, 2696 v3 is 18-core.
Passmark does not set the bench.
This QS is same stepping as production silicon.
2699 is not the same as 2696, hence the different model number.This is a current listing for the 2699 v3 18 core 2.3-3.6ghz for $597 from a US seller right now: E5-2699v3 | eBay
the 2699 v3 is actually the retail non-oem one which has wider compatibility than the oem 2696 v3.
There was a listing 2696 v3 sold just a little while ago for $480 and a few days before that for $550: 2696 v3 | eBay
Just saying, you as a seller can set whatever price you want. But you are not gonna get anyone to buy yours unless you set it at market price. And you are certainly not gonna be able to get people to "upgrade" to "your 2696 v3" from 2696 v2 unless you set a good price....lol...
A production one sold for $450 today: Intel Xeon E5-2696 V3 OEM SR1XK LGA 2011-3 2.3GHz 18-Core CPU Processor | eBay2699 is not the same as 2696, hence the different model number.
I say again: Show us where you can get this CPU (2696 v3) for substantially lower price.
That you don't see the value in the chip is fine. Let it go. It's not for you. Move along.
Don't know. There is a good chance it might. I think usually only intel declines OEM cpus (2696v2 is oem). At this low price, you don't have much to lose anyway. should order one. can always resell or get the asus z9pe MB which i know does work with it.Does the CPU run on a TYAN S7050?
