Xeon E5-2600 v4-processors

Did anyone had a chance to test the new Xeon V4 versions ?

been thinking of upgrading my second rig to either the
i7 5820 6-Core @ 3,3GHz-3,6GHz 28x PCI-e lanes
or the new E5-2620 v4 8-core @ 2,1GHz-3GHz 40x PCI-e lanes


there close to the same price so wondering if anyone tested the new v4 yet for multiboxing

Re: Xeon E5-2600 v4-processors

They may be similar in price, but the Xeon is heavily gimped in terms of speed. The Xeon is clocked at 2.1 GHz which is absolutely atrocious, and while it does have a turbo speed of 3GHz, you can't overclock it even if you wanted to because it's locked. On the other hand, the 5820K starts off unlocked and capable of 3.6GHz minimum (which is already 20% faster than the turbo speed of the Xeon), and has the ability to push it over 4GHz with relative ease while on air cooling. A six-core CPU that is clocked ~50% faster than an eight-core is going to be faster in probably every benchmark you can throw at it.
