3 overclocked Ivy Bridge 3770K machines will run you somewhere in the neighborhood of $3,000 (you can do it for a lot less even if you go with cheaper components...this would be for ASUS Gene Z mobos and that level stuff) and their combined compute power would beat a dual 2687W by a solid margin.

Using CineBench as a reference point...

OC'd Ivy 3770K = 10.5pts (rough estimate)
2P Xeon 2687W = 25.5pts

For the price of a dual Xeon E5, you could easily afford 5+ 3770K boxes...we're talking about literally more than doubling your computational power by going with a distributed farm setup instead of sinking it all into one machine.

It's not quite as sexy a solution, but it's WAY more compute strength...though it actually is quite sexy to have 5 machines all in a row with blinking lights.

I believe it actually ends up with lower overall wattage and power consumption too.

Oh and there's something big to be said for massive single thread power too. An Ivy chip @ 5GHz will be able to crunch non-threaded tasks MUCH faster than the Xeons.

You are incorrect. Don't say what you believe, show some facts.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/xeon-e5-2687w-benchmark-review,3149-11.html


2 E5-2687Ws at 421.6W during a custom workload

My 2700K @ 4.6 GHz consumes 218W running WCG and 249W Prime95 Large FFTs with 1.325V/1.10V QPI/1.5V DRAM 16GB.

Three SNB System consumes considerably more. IVB is a little more efficient, so maybe instead of 249W, it may consume 220W. It's still much more than 2 Xeons.

Guess this board can't overclock like the SR-X.

Just kidding... ignore what I said. The Asus board is overclockable, however I believe it's only through the multiplier, which is obviously locked for all of us. *sigh* Not sure if you can adjust the blck like with the SR-X. Guess I'll have to wait and see on which board I'll be picking up. Damn I thought the decision was finally easy for once rolleyes.gif

I agree. The EVGA SR-X looks better, but I would go with the ASUS. ASUS is really bringing the pain and they have a nice reliability and features streak going. EVGA has not been doing to good in the motherboard market lately. I do not like head aches if you know what I mean!

Not really impressed by the looks. Looks pretty bland, honestly. And not in a good way. And no, I don't like red/black mobos. This just seems... so.... 2007.

Funny how some of you compare to a Ivy Bridge single socket... performances. Not saying more cores are better but it is a completely different platform to start with 2011 dual sockets. Orange vs Apple.

The SR-X cant really OC xeons either.

Please explain how they are oranges and apples and how they cannot be directly compared.
