    Yeah, i noticed the price and quantity...lol

    This is basically the fatest v2 cpu along with the 2697 v2 for multicore performance... To go any faster, you don't have any other choices except to upgrade to v3/v4 or the later stuffs....

    If you want to go new, used 1950x is your best bet right now... same multicore performance as dual 2696 v2 with faster single core performance... but then you are limited to 128gb ram effectively since good luck finding 32gb ddr4 udimm.

    Looks like the seller canceled the listing and decided to sell each CPU separately for more $$... Shame as I was ready to pull the trigger on 2x 2690 v2's when I saw this, and now disappointed.

    I didn't, I had them listed under an alternate account which I forgot paypal puts holds on funds for new accounts so I canceled it and re-listed it on my well established account and they sold the other day for my asking price. No mark up. Though I believe I did notice the listing you may be referring to.
