Hello,
I have been waiting some time to replace my Q6600 core 2 duo for a xeon e5-1620. I check several retailers every so often but I do not see the xeon e5-1620 on the market.
Does anyone know a firm release date please?
Thanks

Or so it seems but the issue is that I cannot find it nor buy it on E-retailers. Without spilling the bean I feel safer on major E-retailers T.D and New....
I just do not understand what is going on. Any advice where I could get it from a safe and reliable E-retailer please?

Is there any reason why you are going to purchase this over an i7?

Work in 3D modeling, level design, animation & cinematic (nothing ultra complex but still...) Reasoning is really simple!
I am tired to get Autodesk products to crash on me. This xeon will help me boost everything around but more particularly the amount of ECC memory 32 gigs is a an agreable minimum

I am looking on intel website and it does not look like they sell xeon e5-1620 but much older products.
Still looking to find it somewhere.. reliable! :p

I would assume from your question that there are not much difference between a i7 and a 3820 in terms of clock, core .. etc.
Yet, I am pretty sure I will lock a i7 with autodesk products under specific circumstances that I want to assume may or would not arize with error correction module rams, hence a xeon family. Lastly 24 gigs is pretty cool, no doubt about that when working on Mudbox but for fluidity/workflow a 32 is a definite better.
I already have a very good graphic card ATI V7900, it is really powerful and better priced compare to the other major brand. Though I was a fidel follower to the other brand for years but the v7900 is simply unbeatable in feature while as best or slightly under its comparable alter ego from the other brand.

I guess yes,
I might have to lower my head down, and cry as I might buy a 1155 or in other words, buy a compact car (geo metro) other a nice sedan.

If performance is really that important, just go for the i7 3930K. 6C-12T, so a lot more processing power than the E5 1620. A lot more expensive too (if the 1620 ever becomes available in a boxed form), but if the processing power is truly needed, that's the way to go.

The need for ECC RAM isn't really an issue, as you're not talking about a server, and 64GB is the max amount on the 3930K, which should be plenty for anything you're doing.

I just got a E5-1620 for about the $300 list price. It did not come in any sort of retail box or with a heatsink.
