That's much more like it. The E5-2697v2 absolutely dominates our SiSoft Sandra graphs, putting a hurting on anything else we've tested.

Yes we know that they are hardly comparable in price terms, but it's impressive however you slice it.

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
