I really need your input on this one. Just as soon as I think that I have got the hang of which Xeon is best for my needs (just need to be a good server to run multiple thread submissions and multi task) I wont name the software as I dont want to look like an affiliate! I just need some good old fashioned advice from experts. I thought I had a clue about this after extensive research but, I realise that I am back where I started!
The processor will handle data only. I am not interested in the extra graphic capabilities to run games, windows 7, after affects, etc.
I am looking at buying a second hand HP XW6000 but I am struggling to see witch Xeon is the best for my needs.
I have dual core, single core with HT, 2 processors with single core but with with HT, all being thrown at me
I just need to know what which Xeon is the best? from these ebay links:
Or are they all crap! and I am looking at the wrong system.
Is the HT on old system that will run slower?
Many thanks in advance guys. I really appreciate your advice. Derogatory or otherwise (hopefully the latter)
These are really old systems with processors that are using the Intel® Netbrust® microarchitecture (same as used on the Intel Pentium® 4). As to where you need to be in for a processor, the big question is, is the software you are planning to use multi-threaded and if so how many threads can it support? Also what is your budget?
