At the same time i think it quad channel per cpu ? smile.gif

Even with just eight DIMMS total it would still be quad channel... I just want to have more than enough memory in case I get any tasks that require 4GB of RAM o_O Definitely agree on it being much sexier with all of them filled though!

Alternatively, you can grab a quad G34 socket AMD opteron board and put a 4x 12 core opteron cpus in it for about the same money if you buy everything used smile.gif

But the Intel would be faster in the end clock for clock unless your going balls out with something that can use those 48 cores...and now add in heat and power?

Interestingly enough, this is now a question I'm running around in my head.... 8c/16t Ryzen.... Or just get a "tried and true" 16c/32t Natex bundle.

I am looking at a dual Natex build as well, but now that Intel has noted the v6 xeon release, i am wondering will facebook and other be dumping all their v3/v4 servers if they have them and the v3/v4's will become the new E5-2670's?

I would hate to jump on the socket 2011 train and in 2-3 months 2011 v3 are dirt cheap...

We don't have server grade v5's yet, and the Broadwell core v4's were launched only a year ago, so I suspect Intel isn't in any rush to replace those with a new product, as they seem to release server processors every 18 months or so (E5-2690v3 was Q3 2014, E5-2690v4 was Q1 2016, as examples). I would presume that if we were to start seeing v3's show up on the market for cheap that v5 would have to be released AND provide a rather noticeable improvement to performance and power consumption for companies to jump ship. Such a change might happen with Ryzen's server products coming out, but only time will show on such - AMD hasn't even released full on information about their server lineup yet.

By v6, are you referring to the workstation grade E3's, which typically are limited to four cores each? One also has to take into consideration that most Xeons cannot be overclocked if they're v4 or newer.

EDIT: There's also the case that even if the CPU's are dirt cheap the accompanying RAM or even motherboards might not be priced in the "easy to afford" category alongside those processors.

Good points, good to know about their time lines.

I had just saw the post over on servethehome.com

INTEL XEON E3-1500 V6 FAMILY

https://www.servethehome.com/intel-releases-kaby-lake-xeon-mobile-intel-xeon-e3-1500-v6-family/

but completely missed the "mobile" part in the article.


Do you know if the Intel E5-2665 v2 had the Vt-d issues the v1's had? I might be able to grab 2 x $170 CAD.

http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NjAwWDgwMA==/z/nZcAAOSwjDZYcVCC/$_27.JPG

[EDIT] doesn't appear the E5-2665 ever was a v2 chip but was a v1 based on Sandy Bridge, not Ivy.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#Xeon_E5-26xx_v2_.28dual-processor.29

I do see c1 and c2 stepping but not for the code from the image..

I am running a pair of E5-2670 v2 ES chips, and have been very satisfied with the performance.  I picked them up for a great price, but even at $150 each, they are still a great deal. 

 

I have purchased from this seller before, and even exchanged defective chips with zero hassles. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-E5-2670-v2-ES-LGA2011-10C-Compatible-with-X79-i7-3960X-4930K-4960X-/152255136017?hash=item23731d0111

Most definitely. I have been buying ES chips for quite awhile and the value is awesome compared to retail or used prices. 20 cores is perfect for my main rig. The extra cores allow me to set up the VMs that I want without having to put together another machine.
