Better gaming performance on many low freq. cores

Hello.

 

How could I get a better performance on 20 cores x 2.50GHz (max 3.30GHz)? I'm asking this because I'm planning to buy a workstation. (link)

Is there a way to OC the Xeon E5-2670 V2? I didn't see anything about the CPU being locked or unlocked on Intel's site.

Oh sorry, forgot to mention.

Gaming.

Or is the performance enough due to 20 (2x10) cores?

This just comes down to multithread support of the given game. For example, Guild Wars 2 is completely CPU bound for me because it seems to only really utilize one thread of my 3600. There's nothing that can be done to increase performance except increase core speed.

 

Other games have better optimization, but very few games seem to use more than 4-6 threads very heavily, in my experience.

You can't really oc those chips or do anything else to help much.

 

Those chips really aren't great for games and many other programs, so id try to stay away from it. Getting a desktop chip will give you much better performance in most programs.

 

Those are also pretty old chips now, so the ipc isn't great compared to newer chips.

This.

 

Why do you need a 20 core chip?  Less cores, faster cores > slow as fuck many cores.

cpu isn't that good for gaming.

Depends on the game.

I game just fine on a 20c/40t dual Xeon workstation not far removed from that one.

Armoured Warfare, Doom 2016, all run fine on max settings at 1080p

Now going to 4k? Yeah you might have issues, but that amount of cores/threads kick ass for workloads and the games that can handle it.

YMMV of course.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

1, turn off HT - this can help a fair bit as it stops code from tripping over itself on the number of available threads

2, disable cores - this might help the remaining cores boost higher/more often.
