    Intel Xeon E5-2680v2 2.8GHz 10-Core LGA2011 Processor SR1A6 | eBay

    I scored what I thought was a pretty solid deal for a v2 E5 on eBay from this seller. He has 4 more available. I needed 2 for an Intel S2600CP4 update to my ancient AMD file server. Now I will be able to play around with VM's :)

    I offered $200 each for 2 and he accepted same day (just now). I'm thinking the prices will probably come down some more soon, but this looked like a good deal now, and I would like to get going on the update.

    In case anyone is looking ....

    UPDATE:

    Probably old news but there seem to be a lot of these being moved on eBay at the moment with over 300 sold at $160 each with a Best Offer option from this particular seller:

    SR1A6 INTEL XEON E5-2680V2 10 CORE 2.80 GHz 25M 8 GT/s 115W PROCESSOR 6912839502133 | eBay

    I'm seeing V2 prices coming down as well further. E5-2690 V2 and E5-2697 V2 prices seem to be coming down according to my observations but their not at the level they should be yet. It's good to see movement on V2 processors especially if one has a X79 motherboard to utilize the processor with it.

    Thanks to the original post for including your best offer success. I picked up two at the same price.

    Thanks again.

    Shame there hasn't yet been a big dump of 1680v2, they are an incredible upgrade for all those X79 systems still out there.

    That's one I am waiting for. They overclock nicely and offer almost 5960X like performance both at stock and overclocked speeds. For X79 it's the best overclockable Xeon in my opinion. The 1660/1650 (V1/V2) are the next best overclockable Xeons. I'm sure given more time it will drop further in price. I did see one last year for about between 200-300 dollars (Mac workstation pull) and it was a shame I missed out on it.

    Great prices. Currently lots of v2's are getting decomissioned so expect more of this in the near future.

    Is that likely ? I thought most would be 26xx 2S CPU's used in the enterprise and hyperscale, I always expected 16xx to be a small seller.

    Guess that's one of the reason?

    I've heard that they were custom processors designed for use in Apple workstations and not many were produced. I'd assume that is also another reason why we don't see that many compared to other V2 processors. It's also the only unlocked (multiplier unlocked provided you use it in a compatible overclocking motherboard) 8 core X79 Xeon.

    why are 2667v2 so expensive? they are my fav (besides 2687w). but is it because they are rare?

    Because like the 2687W V2 they are high clock speed low core count processors and less common. So yes they are rarer when compared to more core count versions with a lower clock speed.

    It's also amazing how going from 3.3Ghz on the 2667 V2 to the 2687W V2 goes from 130W to 150W in a mere 100mhz jump. With the 3960X and 3970X it was 20W TDP jump over 200mhz from 3.3Ghz to 3.5Ghz.

    I've seen plenty of sellers selling 2680 v2 for 200 USD the last month. I have even seen 2690 v2 for $230.

    but what objectively makes that more expensive? the most expensive chips are actually low clock, more cores eg. 2699. so why they bubble on a couple high clock ones?

    2669v2s are dropping fast. Lot of sellers have them at $120-$125.

    The frequency optimized parts also have more cache and I think it's an issue with production defect rates.
    But more than likely at the end of the day it's just intel market segmentation and initial price combined with not being the most popular parts
