I need to purchase 8-10 Xeon v4 ES cpus with 14 cores or more. I need them for 3d rendering. On a tight deadline.
Anyone know where i can find good deals on ES cpus.

Some specific models are
2683 v4 ES
2695 v4 ES
2697 v3 ES

Other models over 14 core and over 2ghz are fine also. It really depends on whats the best bang for the buck. So i am flexible with the models.

In my quick research on the 3 models you gave me, the 2683 v4 es can be obtained for under $400 each if you're willing to bid on ebay. Otherwise, they were 500+ and then the 2695 would be in the same price/performance ratio. The 2697 is in another league as far as single thread performance according to passmark and the prices on ebay seem to reflect that too, often charging a premium:

I got pair 2683 v3 CPU's (14 cores) and ASUS Mobo with All-core Turbo unlocked (14 cores @ 3.0Ghz). No rush in selling that, but if you're interested - PM me. I'm not using that to it's full potential anyway.
