Quote:I've been blown away by the ability to:
1. match or beat the v4's core for core (i.e. 14 cores of 2960v4 vs 14 cores of 2696v3 doing the same work are roughly the same with the 2696 a little ahead)
2. run an 18 core headless compute node at full-tilt pulling 250W from the wall...
You can also bclk v3's to ~103-105 where the v4s don't like that very much. Doing so, I managed (with the ucode hack) to top the world leaderboard for 18 core Cinebench R15 on a lark.
Looking at that score, I am pretty sure I can beat it - that was with stock 2133CL15 memory and a pretty low bclk OC.
