Intel Xeon 2697 V2 24 Core 48 Thread Madness Review

Test Setup

Intel Xeon E5-2697v2 Review

Test Setup

2x Intel Xeon E5-2697v2
ASUS Z9 PE-D8 WS
2x Corsair H75
2x Corsair Vengeance 32GB
2x Corsair Force 3 GT 480GB
Corsair AX1200
Corsair 900D
Club3D 280X
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit 

Utilising Windows 7, even in the 64 Bit version, means that the 12/24 cores of the Xeon E5-2697v2 wont be fully utilised as we have a 32 core limit, so that's worth bearing in mind when looking through our results. It certainly demonstrates how high-end the Xeon's are, and that you're expected to use them with a Linux distro rather than an off-the-peg OS.

My dangly bits tingled during the Cinebench run
Highest score i've had on my 2500k is about 7.9 and that took a good 30secs, maybe more to complete the render test.

I would love to have two of these Xeons but 1. I can't afford them and 2. I have no use for them anyway, so it would be a waste.
I still want them though!! Quote

I would love to see you guys putting Ubuntu on this rig and running The Phoronix Test Suite. Get all of those cores up and running. Running a desktop OS on this rig may be selling it short.

Thinking about it the test suite is something you guys might want to look into as it can running on Windows and automates benchmarks and might become a tool that could be used across the board.Quote
