In addition, the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 product family delivers significant benefits in performance, power efficiency, virtualization, and security. Combining these benefits with a low total cost of ownership and Intel’s acclaimed product quality, the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 product family is a compelling solution for any organization. Features
• Up to 2X faster encryption and decryption – Intel® Data Protection Technology with Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) accelerates data encryption and decryption up to 2X faster than previous-generation Intel Xeon Processor E5 family. With many work-loads, Intel AES-NI encryption and decryption is practically transparent to system resources. Combined with Intel Data Protection technology with Intel® Secure Key random number generation, Intel Xeon Processor E5 v3 family provides even stronger data protection. • Strong protection against platform attacks – Intel® Plat-form Protection Technology with Intel® OS Guard and BIOS Guard traps external calls trying to hijack System Manage-ment Mode (SMM) code in the OS, and provides workstation BIOS protection during FLASH updates via protected agent authentication. • Intel® Platform Protection Technology – with Intel®Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) helps protect platform firmware and the OS kernel from pre-boot attacks. TXT now supports Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0)with stronger cryptographic capabilities. • Infrastructure utilization – Cache monitoring allows real-time, high-confidence measurements of LLC usage, providing control of workload placement and load balancing across shared infrastructure in the virtualized environment. • Low I/O latency – Intel® Data Directed I/O enhancements allow targeting the LLC for I/O traffic and controlling the LLC way assignment to specific cores, without hitting the memory first. These result in high LLC performance and low I/O latency.
Higher performance for diverse workloads • Intel® Turbo Boost Technology takes advantage of power and thermal headroom to increase processor frequencies for diverse workloads
Higher performance for technical computing applications • Intel AVX2 accelerates floating point and integer computations with support for 256-bit vectors • Provides up to 1.9X more peak floating point operations than previous generation

Great price performance! Terrifiv Reliability! Reccomended!I chose this for CPU for Xeon reliability, purely based on experience at work.
this CPU seemed the most cost effective in the range.
Working with Photoshop, which doesn't utilise multiple threads the base speed of 3,5 and turbo boost of 3.8 GHz seemed a good balance. 40 PCIe lanes and an Intel PCIe 750 SSD appear to be blindingly quick.
The chip runs cool t 29-37C even on a really hot day, and my case fans rarely go over 350rpm so its a quiet Workstation.
DDR4 ECC memory 2133Mhz is reasonably quick and again so under-clocked, stability should be guaranteed and so far is.1st PC I ever built, and I am pleased with the stability and performance.
From what I can see it contributes to a really under stressed and quiet Workstation - which as the goal. It boots windows from cold in about 3.9 seconds!
It infuriates me to see 5 of the 6 cores sitting totally idle, and pray one day Photoshop will step into the 20th Century and use more than 1 core! lol!
And I am so glad I didn't go for the Dual Xeons that run at 2 to 2.6 GHz.
Most other programs use multithreading and then it flies!
Definitely recommend this product ........ and its nice to have 3 year warranty.... and I am sure will really come into its own in 4K video rendering.
my config has 32GB RAM and it never gets close to maxing that.
Copying stuff is super fast so I guess its doing its job well.
And of course, my MB is certified for the V4 vairant and once I see that Bios is stable then their is a nice performance boost on the Horizon. Rather surprisingly, the Current benchmarks of the E5 1650 V4 , only show a tiny improvement over the V3 like 1% or 2 %. :( :( So I guess its the Bios not being up to it.?
but maybe it will be sorted, and hey makes my purchase look good. :)
Its used in a SM 2011 V3 MB. and so far is rock solid.

Lots of cores AND high clock rates, Perfect!It was either this e5-1650, with its 6x 3.5Ghz cores, or I could've gone and got a dual 2620.
I went with this for quite a few reasons, which I'll explain below, hopefully helping others decide which/why this 1650 over dual 2620s!
It has high clock rates of 3.5Ghz per core, rather than 2.2Ghz cores on the 2620 -- This means that almost everything you do uses a single, or maybe 2 cores... that's 2x 3.5Ghz, compared to 2x2.2Ghz -- If you need to do a truly HUGE amount of work (multi threaded conversions for example), eventually, the 2620 will beat out the 1650 (if there's no other bottlenecks such as Disk I/O), so unless you are specifically trying to use more than 12 cores (6 + hyperthreading per core) at the same time, for example Cinebench, you will notice the 1650 much quicker in actual everyday tasks, rather than what most people would use in the real-world :)
Its a single processor, so only one processor to keep cool.

Pricey but capableThe Xeon E5-1650V3 is an excellent Workstation CPU to use which breezes through any heavyweight tasks I can possibly throw at it. Paired with a WS-based X99 Mobo and some DDR4 ECC REG RAM, you'll have the almost immeasurable processing power to achieve whatever you truly desire to accomplish.
It's actually a very cold CPU to run when idle, no doubt to some of Intel's new chipset features included with it. Paired with a small Noctua NH-U9S running in low RPM mode I have this CPU sitting idle recorded at room temperature very easily.
If you have the money to blow and you want something from the E5-1600V3 range, this middle-of-the-road model in the series is honestly the best value one out of the whole lot. 6 Hyperthreadable cores (upto 12 logical) and a very generously sized L3 cache gives you alot to work with. Just make sure your Mobo is compatible with the Xeon's though before purchasing, very few of them currently are at the moment!
Value: 3.5 to 4.5 out of 5 (depending on your use for it)
Quality: Xeon out of 5 (the most reliable and Workstation & Server Friendly out of the lot)
