Hello,
I wanted to ask if I should go for this xeon cpu E5-2689 paired with a motherboard which has similar performance with Ryzen 7 1700.
Or should I wait for the new upcoming ryzen 3000?
I already have ddr3 kits so the total price for the cpu + mobo almost $120.
If I go with ryzen 3000 it should cost around $400 for ryzen 3600, mobo and ddr4 kits which is more than triple the cost and maybe goes more.
Let me know if the mobo is compatible with xeon E5-2689 cuz I never had intel before.
These are the parts which I might buy.

Those are Sandy Bridge, hence they need DDR3 not 4.

I reckon it should work, do be mindful, that CPU is considerably slower even compared to a 1700. I would recommend searching for a used AM4 kit.

If it was the V2 then I would have gambled...go for an AMD and a decent motherboard and you have an upgrade path. The old power hungry Intel is a dead end.

Well the processor is compatible with this motherboard. But the board may not provide you with all the lanes this cpu has. However i dont know why are you even considering this option? You can still sale your ddr3 kits and welcome ryzen 3rd Gen. You can have an edge to do whatever you were planning to do with that old xeon which wont overclock either.

I want to buy this cpu and mobo cuz super cheap compared to Ryzen. Doesn't make any sense to me to buy CPU mobo and ram for $400 when I get almost same performance for 120$.

Which is why I recommended buying a used AM4 + Ryzen 2nd gen kit. With Ryzen 3 you might find some pretty good deals in the following months. No is denying this Xeon is super cheap but it's also not going to be amazing.

that is a Sandy Bridge Xeon,
so its V1,

im sure it will be compatible with the X79 board,
but dont expect the performance to be mindblowing or anything,
thanks to the relatively low clockspeed, and aging microarchitecture

As with most of the other replies in the thread, I'd suggest getting new. Even a 1700X and B350 or something similar will perform much better and be a lot more efficient :)

You could consider getting an old server or something with a similar dual CPU etc, but that will just limit your usage somewhat and it will be a little on the noisy side of things.

The board linked is most likely a rebadged H61 chipset or similar... I don't know how they got the S2011 CPU's working on these chipsets, but, if you search eBay, you'll see a ton of these very same boards... all super cheap, but not really "right" for the job.

I'd avoid such boards - instead, I'd look for something known/reputable from the used section of eBay - ASUS or similar.


Also, instead of telling this guy to get Ryzen.. you people could be more.... helpful? :shadedshu:



Edit: he apparently doesnt have much money - so there is no point telling him to get a used combo for $200+ (plus new ram) when he only, seemingly, has $120 to spend.... so, unless you can get a Ryzen system that will beat or compete against his system for $120 or less, theres really no point telling him to go Ryzen. Sticking to the subject/topic he asked for help with, may be more helpful than suggesting he flip to something he cannot afford. :toast:

We've answered all of his questions and also pointed out what could be a better choice, that's as much help as you can reasonably expect. Now, what was your contribution to this ?

Apart from being realistic in my reply? Oh.. not much.. just pointing out the obvious use of a H61 chipset.. that everyone seemingly missed...?

We didn't really miss it, it's in the specs of board that was linked. And it doesn't change anything that would be of great significance.

You know what would be more realistic ? Reading the OP carefully.

Hello,
I wanted to ask if I should go for this xeon cpu E5-2689 paired with a motherboard which has similar performance with Ryzen 7 1700.
Or should I wait for the new upcoming ryzen 3000?
He directly asked us if it was better to wait for Ryzen 3000, well acknowledging the fact that this would be a lot more expensive. So no, we were all quite realistic in our recommendations.

Absolutely true, I have the money to buy the $499 Ryzen 3000 CPU and all latest stuff.

But why would I pay that much when I want to play games and render some videos maybe.

So for me the best choice is going to be performance / cost.

Buying used Ryzen 1600 maybe better. Still not sure though. $120 seems amazing deal.

By the way there's another set of boards that support these CPUs that seem more trustworthy (as much as you expect from these things anyway)

I'm going to tell you right now, as an owner of a dual E5-2680v2 setup, to go with the Ryzen build. The 1700x will have better performance overall and the DDR4 will have a longer lifespan.

Weren't some of those cheapo "x79" boards so bad that they couldn't stand prolonged load (i.e. encoding/rendering) and just broke?

Even though the cpu has 4 channel IMC, this board puts out only 2 channels in 2DPC configuration.

Benchmark Scores Maybe it is time to benchmark :D
I'm going to tell you right now, as an owner of a dual E5-2680v2 setup, to go with the Ryzen build. The 1700x will have better performance overall and the DDR4 will have a longer lifespan.
I have ddr3 for 10 years. I saw a YouTube video demo latest games and it looked perfect.
