▒ PREFACE WORDS As you remember, my previous daily driver
was Ryzen 9590x 16c/32t. After some fun with it I’ve decided to drop it in favor to retro stuff.
Intel Xeon CPU based around Broadwell chip: E5-2696v4 22c/44t
became the chip of the choice. It is OEM version of top of the line E5-2699v4
. It is a bit slower, around marginal 3-4%, but costs significantly less than 2699v4.
▒ FPU OPERATIONS COMPARISON Tested with the latest version of AIDA64 v6.60 / Windows 7 x64 ESU.
FPU JULIA FPU SINJULIA FPU MANDEL QUEEN Z-LIB RAY TRACE 32 RAY TRACE 64 AES SHA 3 As you can see blue cpu’s eat dust in terms of FPU performance, but it is worth to note that memory wise we have backwards situation, thanks to shiny new DDR5 memory subsystem, which blue team is already exploiting.
