Sounds good - where is it?

Thanks though!

The 1680 is currently really expensive, though you're right it is the performance jump I was thinking of: smile.gif 8 core @4.7GHz sounds good to me.

What is really needed is a hack to get the 26xx series working with the same multiplier flexibility.

EDIT: Chips with the VT-d bug might be worth even less for servers, but be great for gaming.

On X79 there are already cheap fully unlocked 6 core cpu's no need for Xeon's....it would be nice to unlock cheap 8 core cpu's...i'm writing these on my e5-2670 on a X79 board. Realistically it's never going to happen smile.gif It would be nice though...just imagine if you could unlock an eight core you could also unlock the 12 core variant biggrin.gif

What makes you think it never will? That we'll not figure it out?

If it's only about the money, then why are the Uniprocessors unlocked?

Not all of them, only the sku's I've listed above. Mostly because they are the same as the desktop equivalent...just more expensive and with some different instructions. The only CPU that have no desktop equivalent is the 1680 v2...but then again you've seen the price.

To give you the taste of reality I am running Xeon E5-1680v3 with 128 GB ECC RAM in a X99 motherboard. The Xeon overclocks up to 4.5 GHz with my watercooling, 4.2 GHz stable with heavy benchmarks.

What do you mean "a taste of reality"?

Sorry - I really don't understand biggrin.gif
