Got some new processors!

Xeon E5-2667v2

Moved up from the old pair of E5-2620 v2’s to a pair of E5-2667 v2’s. What a big difference from a base clock of 2.1Ghz to 3.3Ghz. And yes, more cores!

2475 Cinebench score

And I can build DOSBox in 3 seconds using Visual C++ 6.0 Ultimate. I guess eventually I’ll get a modern machine, but for now this is pretty damned good. Which reminds me the newer processors for my 2006 Mac Pro should be arriving soon enough.

I couldn’t quite justify the more than double price for the E5-2697 v2 processor, although it has 50% more cores, but with a max clock of 3.5Ghz.

Oh well it’s as good as any update to the Huananzhi X79.

    1. Ok here we go…

      I ran this a few times, it’s always 1 minute exactly. Although it does use all 32 cores.

      And this one takes forever using a single core. ..

        1. I also picked up a pair of x5365’s for my 2006 MacPro. I haven’t done the installation yet as I know it’ll take a few hours to tear this thing down.

          But it’ll be a nice bump going from dual core 2Ghz Xeons to quad core 3Ghz!

          I doubt I’ll have this thing running in 2026, but it might be great to get it to at least 2020.
