Intel I7-6900K Versus Intel Xeon E5- 2650 v4

 Share

New build with an Asus X99-E WS/USB 3.1 Motherboard. The build will be used for Content Creation/Engineering/Gaming.

Votes on the CPU ( Intel I7-6900K Versus Intel Xeon E5- 2650 v4 ) would be greatly appreciated.

Comments regarding pros and cons for each CPU will also be helpful. Thanks for your time.

Additional information added;

(2) ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 TURBO-GTX1070-8G  SLI enabled.

64 GB'S of Kingston Ram.

* The  Intel Xeon E5- 2650 v4 has a Max Turbo Frequency of 2.90 GHz.

*The  Intel I7-6900K has a Max Turbo Frequency of 3.70 GHz.

Is 2.90 GHz suitable for gaming?

I was unaware that games require a minimum frequency, and am fairly certain, that you do not have to overclock a CPU to play games.

I am "Not." a "Gamer."

Thanks, Again.

Well the 2650's max turbo boost is 2.9GHz. That isn't fast enough to game on... plain and simple. It will do great on everything else due to having 12 cores though. The 6900K will do much better in gaming, and still plenty well for content creation and such

First you need to look at the overclockability!
Can the Xeon be overclocked or not? Probably not. Some can be, most can not be. And you can't easily find information about that..


The 6900 can be overclocked.

 

however, the 6900 isn't much faster than a Ryzen 2700x. But more expensive, consumes more power...

Here someone who did a bit of that.

Hello. I appreciate you trying to help. "Overclockability." is most certainly "Not." the first thing you look at.

I know you meant well, but that's bad advice. Thanks.
