Hi just a little curious on what the highest performing cpu is that is released by intel. After doing a little search I found the Xeon E7 8890 V2. Is that the highest performing released so far? Comparing it to the Xeon E5 2697 V2 would it perform better?

Thanks :) .

Depends on what you want to do with it. The i7 4770k has the strongest single thread performance of any Intel at any price. The e7 8895v2 is probably the best single cpu for a lot of uses, and the e5-2687Wv2 is pretty awesome too.

Ya that's the big boy there. Not really a consumer CPU as it comes in at almost 7grand the 8891/8893 are 10 and 6 cores respectively but both clocked higher. same price different but for different work loads. Those three are pretty much as good as it gets for high end x86-64 server though.

Are the intel E5 and E7 cpu's unlocked for ocing? I am obviously not going to spend that much money on a cpu but the main reason I am asking this is because I am thinking of a parts list for my dream build and I am trying to put a cpu on the list which best benefits my needs. Which of those cpu's renders videos the fastest? I do lots of video editing/rendering.

No the Xeons are locked. You can use BCLK but that is 100-107MHz gains tops. Thee 8890 would probably be the best because of the 15 cores. The 10 core 8891 with its higher clock would be pretty powerful too. Not sure editing scales that high though. Both are designed server and can sit on boards with up to 8 of them with something like 1.5Tb of RAM

How would you get 1.5TB Ram? The 8890 seems awsome. If you run it on a consumer board something like the asus rampage iv extreme and put 64gb ram in there how would that be? If a server board is required what is the best one out there? Something that can take 4 8890s?

Get TWO e5-2687Wv2 and have 16 cores running @ 4.0ghz!

Wouldn't two e5 2697 v2 achieve better performance? Is there any minimum system memory requirement for these cpu's? Are they compatible with any motherboard or does it have to be a server board? Are there any dual cpu server boards that also support good gpu's like the gtx 770 or 780?

Ya but like your saying the idea behind these processors are never to get just one. These are for multi-CPU configurations. There is no minimum memory requirement only max.

For the board the Should work as long as the socket is the same but that can't be guaranteed. What you really want is a workstation board like this not that board though. Most of them are lacking on the PCIe lanes though. I did see an Asus board awhile back that would work for that.

Two 2687Wv2s would be better than two 2697v2s in some things and the two 2697v2s would be better in others. Depends on what you're doing.

mazooni, if you are really interested in building a realistic new rig for video editing/rendering, you could get a pair of e5-2630v2s for about $1200. That's $100 per core. They're really a very good deal.

I am just trying to create the most overkill pc parts list. I don't actually have enough money to get a system like this although I wish I did haha. What would be the most overkill configuration that would achieve best performance in rendering? Are there any minimum ram requirements to these cpu's?

Oh... well eight e7 8895v2s would be the best you could possibly get

Has the e7 8895 v2 been released? I can't find any links for it. What motherboard supports eight cpu's? What server motherboard would you recommend for eight e7 8895 v2's?

I cannot find the e7 8895 v2 for purchase anywhere. How can you hook up two quad socket motherboards together?
