Intel Xeon E5-2697v2 Review

PC Mark 7

PC Mark, and the tests it employs, rely heavily on memory speed to store and manipulate data to avoid being restricted by the storage device, and so it's no surprise to see that the poor memory bandwidth of this setup comes back to haunt the Xeon, but we're still shocked at exactly how poor the E5-2697v2 did.

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

I'm a virtualisation consultant and we generally only buy Xeons, and while these are a 'headline' product for Intel very few will be sold simply because their $/£-per-core cost is disproportionately high compared to the ten-core E5-2670 v2 or E5-2680 v2. That said it's always nice to see a company pushing the envelope and of course in about five years our phones will have many cores Quote

I love these overkill3D videos/reviews, so much power, so little reason for almost anyone to buy.

A good watch and read all the same.Quote
