    Would an older dual XEON setup perform well?

    Hey guys, been looking into building a dedicated cruncher and was wondering if building a dual cpu E5-2690v2 would be worth it today. looks like I could build it for under $800-$1000. 40 threads at 3.0Ghz... Anybody have a setup like this? Thanks.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated. Or if someone can let me know how many points that system would generate daily that would help tremendously.

    Hi
    As you know E5-2698V3 is Server`s cpu and it`s not suitable for a hardware enthusiast. i9-10900KF with lower price and higher performance and also great OC capability is much better choice by far, do not waste your money!

    I picked up 2 of these cpu's for $400.00 (for both) and a I9-10900KF is $549.99. Now I have a I9-9900KF in my gaming computer that is crunching now with all cores at 5.0Ghz. I believe the Xeon setup will out preform the my 9900KF but I could be wrong. I'll have this setup built in about a week and I'll post up the findings. I think it will be a good comparison for the money and be cool for a nostalgist piece. stay tuned!

    So if the Xeon is $400.00 things are different!
