Just wondering if the intel xeon x5698 is the most expensive dual core CPU sold this century

Just been looking around at the Intel xeon  58 chips and I saw this chip pop up and people were talking about it costing $20,000 in 2013 seems a bit ridiculous for a dual core CPUimage.png.47e8f638798983621de0a215984b5bb1.pngimage.thumb.png.0329714f6545cd47770fd501e3d82cff.png

I think the idea was for extreme overclocks or high frequency stuff. like the limited addition 7990XE or 9990XE or whatever they called it.

As you can see in the screenshot it was made for Stock Exchange so they need very high performance single core

when it was new in 2012 is was 20k it's hard to find an actual solid number price but because it was only sold for custom orders

Intel make custom/OEM Xeons all the time. E5-2666 v3 and E5-2602 v4 spring to mind. Various E5-16xx chips too. Every now and again they appear on eBay.

If those clocks were required for your use case a decade ago, then it doesn't matter how much it costs. A guaranteed 4.4GHz on a Xeon that didn't require crazy overclocking nonsense was probably worth many thousands of dollars to those who benefited from it at the time.

 

It's not about how much it costs compared to the next SKU down for a business or organization, it's about how much money it can make you or how much time it can save you.
