Bottom Line. If I spend the extra money for the increased speed of graphics that the 1575 offeres w/Pro Iris, should I also speed the extra money for the M5000M to best utilize that extra "bandwidth" capability or are the two unrelated?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

These two graphics systems have approximately the same performance (~1200 gflops)
I was told by Dell support via chat that it is not possible to get a Precision 7510 without the discrete graphics card. That seems silly since the Iris Pro P580 provides the same performance. So two questions:
1. Is it indeed the case that a Precision 7510 cannot be purchased without a discrete graphics card?
2. If I am forced to buy this FirePro, can I at least use it in conjunction with the P580 - each driving separate displays?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi,
I have Dell E7470 and I'm considering a motherboard replacement. The board has i7 CPU with Dell Part # VNKRJ . I wanted to ask If the new board with i7 CPU 6050 and Intel Iris graphics 540 (Dell part # YDW8F) will fit on my laptop ?

In addition, If I purchased an i5 board (Dell part # 3GMP2) , will I be able to replace the CPU with the one that I currently have on the old motherboard and get an i7 board ? I'm asking because the i5 board is cheaper than the i7 board.

Thank you

A:Dell E7470 - is it possible to get the new Intel 6050 CPU with Intel Iris graphics ?

While the boards should interchange, bear in mind:
Whatever board you buy has a CPU soldered to it - the CPUs cannot be replaced separately from the mainboard;  they are not removeable.
If the system is in warranty, replacing the mainboard voids the warranty.

I had purchased a Dell XPS 13 9350 with the Intel Iris 540 in March 2016 (core i7, 256GB, 8GB DDR3). After a few rounds of online technical support, it was sent to the repair depot twice to fix a static/buzzing noise made by the speakers.  On the second trip to the repair depot the laptop was determined to be "beyond economical repair" due to a motherboard issue.
Dell notified me that I would be getting a new XPS 13.  When I asked whether or not I would receive an Intel Iris 540 in the laptop, the systems exchange analyst stated:
"We have checked and found that Intel IRIS 540 is equal to intel HD graphics which we are offering. Both deliver same performance."
On the Dell website, it's stated that the New XPS 13s would have the Intel HD Graphics 620 chip. I went online and found a few graphics comparison websites that state the IRIS 540 is better performing chip but I'm unsure.   
Can someone on the forum confirm the system exchange analysts claim that the performance is equal and give advice whether or not I should accept the exchange? 
I appreciate any and all assistance.  
*edit: I apologize, I read the forum rules and took out the Dell employee's name. Also, clarified system in title.

The response of the system (no-boot with the Xeon CPU aboard) is your answer:  NO.  This system won't take that CPU.
Since the system won't boot with the Xeon CPU aboard, it matters not which OS you plan to run.

I am experiencing a problem with the most recent updates for my XPS 13. The Intel graphics driver “Intel-HD-620-and-Iris-Graphics-640_4MRV7_WIN_22.20.16.4771_A08.EXE” prevents the auto installation of the available updates. Downloading the file and installing it manually led to a blue screen and “Windows didn’t start properly…” message. Trying to install it in Safe mode was an even worse idea – major blue screen, had to restore windows from the previous restore point to get it running again. Dell update keeps prompting me to install an update including this driver, but there is clearly a major incompatibility somewhere. The files for “Chipset |Intel Management Engine Components Installer” and “Chipset |Intel Chipset Device Software Driver” won’t install either, but at least they don’t cause blue screens. The recent BIOS update and other driver updates have installed (manually) fine. Any advice appreciated.

Hello everybody,
I have a Dell XPS 13 9350 with an Intel HD Iros 540 graphics card.
Every worked nicely until an automatic update turned my screen black. After reinstalling Windows 10 from scratch, I discovered that with the generic graphics driver provided by Windows the screen works, but any specific driver for my card turns the screen black. I tried, with no success, in this order:

All the versions of the graphics driver found on the Dell website

20.19.15.4531, A07, 29 Dec 2016
20.19.15.4483, A06 07, Sep 2016
20.19.15.4454, A05 29, Jun 2016
20.19.15.4390, A04 14, Apr 2016
The latest driver found in the Intel website (15.45.16.4627)

None of these works. As soon as any of these drivers are installed, the screen turns black. Upon reboot, the screen stays black in the login screen.
The only fix I found so far is to remove the driver completely, and use the default graphics driver of Windows. I also had to disable automatic driver updates, otherwise the screen would turn black again upon reinstallation of the driver.
What are my options? Is there any diagnostic information I can provide that can help me troubleshoot the problem? I am a Linux user and I know very little about Windows.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Issues again with laptop monitor.  Passes all hardware tests.  Did a complete reinstall of Windows 10 using MS Media creator.  Laptop monitor worked with 2006 MS Generic Graphics driver but when updated, laptop monitor went blank but external monitor started working.  Believe this is a driver problem but each one I try has the same result.  
Had same issue in January.  Was under warranty at the time and ultimate result was to reinstall Windows from Microsoft, motherboard was also replaced although the tech didn't believe it had anything to do with the problem.  Laptop monitor worked fine until a couple of weeks ago when new Windows updates were installed.  I have seen several other posts that are describing the exact same issue.  
Currently, I have latest drivers for the graphics - 20.19.15.4531, Windows 10.0.15063.  At this time, my nice expensive laptop is just a desktop.  Any suggestions on what to try next?

Hello everyone. I am a 3D arch viz artist, using 3Ds Max + Vray render. I am looking for additional render power.

My budget is around 2.000 Euros, so I was considering 2 options:

A guy is selling a HP DL580 G7 server, which includes 32 GB ram and 4x Xeon E7540 2 GHz (6-core CPU, based on Nehalem), which is a total of 24 cores / 48 threads.

For the same money, I could buy a 5960X system or 2 systems running a Core i7 4790 CPUs. The hardware in my country is a bit more expensive when compared to USA / EU.

I can't find any benchmarks for the E7540 CPUs, so I am not sure if 4xE7540 would outperform 2 modern 4-core Core i7 CPUs (like the 4790K). That would be 24cores vs 8 cores / 48 threads vs 16 threads.

Vray render uses all of the available CPU cores, no limit there.
 

A:4 x Xeon E7540 vs Intel 5960X

The 5960X system, if for the same money would be the best buy.

A:Will HPZ800 take Intel Xeon X5690 CPU?

According to the Z800 data sheet, the X5690 is supported. This is a high power Xeon and has a max TDP of 130W so you need a high capacity heatsink with these hot CPU's. I believe not all heatsinks are the same... Others may be able to specify exact part numbers..

I'm looking for a Xeon E3-1235 cpu (LGA 1155 socket) to build a server, I read here in a post from almost a year ago that not all 1155 MOBOs can handle the Xeon cpus.

Is this true?

In Newegg they have normal 1155 boards and 1155 Server boards.
Since normal boards are much cheaper and I won't use all the features in server boards I was planning to get a normal board.

Should I get a server board instead??

A:MOBO for Intel Xeon E3-1235 LGA 1155

Unlike the last generation Xeon 1156 chips (X3440, X3450, X3450), the latest Xeon 1155 chips (E3-1230, E3-1235, E3-1240) are not known for their compatibility with non-server boards. For whatever reasons, manufacturers did not update the microcode on non-serverl boards to facilitate the Xeon 1155 chips.

I would suggest a server board for the Xeon E3-1235 CPU.

I am quite the newbie to hardware, and everything I "know" has only come from trial, and error. I am not one of those techy guys, and most of what I say will be be entirely based on things that I have learned through my own experiences - Not from facts. I make my decisions based on things that I assume, and perceive. I apologise for any offense, or irritation I may cause within this post. I don't stick to the "norm", and I do not tend to reach out for help, unless I really truly feel that I need it. In this case, I feel the need to ask for help. So here I am.

I know my system is old. Please do not blatantly tell me to get rid of it, or to buy an i3, i5, etc.
I would like the questions that I am asking to be answered directly, and to the point.

hello everybody, my name is Brian, I own a dell xps 13 (9350) purchased in 2017, but its the 2016 model with intel iris 540 graphics, its also the model with the QHD+ touch-screen, 3200x1800 resolution.
not sure if it matters what else the system has spec-wise, but ill include that also.

My question is in regards to the colors, and what this screen is producing picture/video quality-wise when I'm viewing colorful photos, or watching videos with colors on youtube;

I've watched quite a handful of videos on youtube about the dell xps 13, and a lot of them suggest that this laptop comes "a touch off" in terms of color gamma and/or color accuracy - whatever that means, but they say the xps 13 out of the box, with no settings adjusted other than what dell and intel have done, that the color and screen needs to be calibrated. 

how do I know what to do and how to check if I need it? I mean, everything seems to be good looking, but if its off and I just don't know it, I would like to know how to modify these "said" settings, as I want the most out of my xps 13!

I'm also experimenting with different power-plan settings, trying to configure this machine for the best possible battery-life, and also longevity in overall-life span. meaning I want to preserve this machine in ways possible, without reducing any of the added benefits of having such a high-performing laptop.

I bought this xps 13 from a friend, we actually traded. I gave him my ipad... Read more

Intel Sandy Bridge finally goes dual socket with new Xeon E5-2600 range

Intel has launched its Xeon E5-2600 range: dual socket processors sporting up to eight cores and 16 threads each, based on its Sandy Bridge core design.

Sandy Bridge processors with up to four cores and eight threads have been shipping for desktop and portable systems for more than a year now, but it's taken Intel a while to scale up and validate its new "Sandy Bridge EP" design for the dual socket market. A further delay was caused by Intel's decision to secretly ship the first processors to HPC customers building supercomputers.

The new processors are closely related to the Sandy Bridge E processors that hit the market last November. They extend the standard single socket Sandy Bridge design with more cores (up to 8), more cache (up to 20 MB), more PCIe connectivity (40 lanes of PCIe 3.0), more memory bandwidth (four DDR3 channels, running at up to 1600 MHz) and more memory capacity (up to 3 DIMMs per channel, for a total of 384 GB per processor). The Sandy Bridge EP (and E) parts lack the integrated graphics of the regular Sandy Bridge, but are bigger and better in every other way.

Aren't Xeons specifically made for servers?

Considering an upgrade. If I go with enthusiast board it will be 1366 6-Core Extreme CPU, even though I would not have much interest in overclocking. If I go server board, it will be a Supermicro dual-Xeon server board that can handle the 6-core Xeons as a pair. Ouch on the price!

Obviously, as far as the Xeons go, there won't be any overclocking, even for a few quick tests and such.

In either case I will be running Win 7 Pro 64-bit as the OS, and the systems will be liquid cooled. I have the appropriate water cooling equipment, PSU's, ATX/E-ATX cases, etc.

Any explicit advantage to either chip? I'm not an overclocker, but I do want speed at stock ratings. Are the Xeons just more heavily validated and tested?

I have not ventured into the world of server boards a lot, but those I have used from Supermicro I really like since they allow so much greater control, such as BIOS-level remote desktop, etc.
 

A:Intel desktop 6-Core vs. Xeon 6-cores - Differences? Pros or cons for either?

Xeon processors function better with multi threaded data handling like in a server side to deal with multiple access/data requests. I would stick with a desktop six core as getting a xeon processor would be impractical and you wouldn't be able to get the full potential out of it unless you want to turn your computer into a server, ha ha.

I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with Intel S2600CWTR series serverboards and Xeon 2600 V4 processors.
It boots fine with single CPU 2600 V4 and also with dual Xeon V3 .... but not with dual V4.

Intel says only board rev H12882-260 has this issue .... but not H12882-261 or H12882-262 ... so they sent me new boards ... still the same problem.

I really want to use the V4 becsue of better memory bandwidth, but I may have to downgrade to V3.

Anybody know anything about this issue?

Many thanks for any insight.


Update as of 07-21-2016:
Intel has been unable to come with an answer ... and it has become evident that they don't test their new products ... nobody actually sticks a couple of processors in the sockets and makes sure it works. They rely 100% on the CAD simulators. Wish I also was that confident about my designs that I could send to customers without testing. It should be noted however ... with Xeon V3, these are really good motherboards.

I have the above workstation running two xeon E5335 2Ghz cpus.  Its very reliable and has taken everything I have thrown at it for a couple of years.  However I cannot for the life of me, get intel speedstep to clock down the CPUs when they are idle. I have been through many tutorials but it just fails to load saying the following. FreeBSD dmesg -aStarting powerd.powerd: no cpufreq(4) support -- aborting: No such file or directory/etc/rc: WARNING: failed to start powerd I think its a bios option but I have been unable to fathom what Ive done wrong.Could you help. I have installed the latest Bios update, but that has made no discernible difference. Could you help? Regards, Steve

I use a number of Dell Poweredge T20 Servers as PCs running Win10 but I have an issue with one specification which refuses to display graphics clearly.
Hardware is:
Intel Xeon E3-1225 v3 3.2GHz (3.6GHz boost) Quad-Core, 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3 ECC UDIMM, 1TB 7200rpm LFF SATA, Gigabit LAN, 290W PSU
No amount of driver downloads seems to resolve this. All cables changed. Display changed. Nothing else to change.
Dell have offered to replace the MB but before I do that, I want to be sure it is a MB issue and not some other rouge problem.
Problem even persists when using an additional GPU so something definitely wrong here.

16th May 2016.Dear Dell Forum Members & Support,We have an existing and very reliable Dell Precision 490 with a Single Intel Xeon 5060 (Dual Core, 3.2GHz,1066MHz) system.The system is currently running Bios Version A08 (04/25/08)
 
Can it be upgraded to Two (2) Intel Xeon Quad Core Processors, and if so, can a list of the compatiable processors be supplied ?
 
e.g. Xeon X5460 (Quad-Core, 3.16 GHz, 1333MHz) etc.

Thank you for your time & patience.With kindest regards.GEM CNC Systems.

I checked T3600 and 3610 - the only difference is BIOS firmware, even BIOS chips are the same. T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems. Another way is to analyze BIOS file for T3610 and drag out the firmware for T3600. If anybody has T3610 - please reply

Hi, Xeon E3-1535M v5 or Xeon E3-1550M v5? Which processor would you recommend? A shop told me, that E3-1535M v5 is no longer available by Lenovo and that Xeon E3-1550M v5 would be the best. Is this true? Thanks for any advice!

A:P50: Xeon E3-1535M v5 or Xeon E3-1550M v5?

Saw your other post asking about optical drive. I got a feeling that it's either a joke or scam. 1) There's no optical drive option for P50 (of course we are talking about built-in drive, not the external one).2) There's no E3-1550M v5 option for P50.  In fact, even the E3-1535M has limited availability.  e.g. E3-1535M is available in Japan but not in US. Good luck with the 'special built' P50.

Hello,

I'm trying to install an old MSI package on a Win7 machine. On XP machines the package interactively asks for a target path (defaults to E:\Program Files), but on Win7 the dialog is skipped and msiexec tries to install it to the default target path (and fails, because there isn't any E: drive). How can I force the install to go interactive, or pass it a new default target path?

TIA

A:Can't interact with MSI

Please try to use the following code

Code:
msiexec /i C:\YOURmsiFILEpath\yourFILE.msi TARGETDIR=C:\YOURdir
you can execute it in elevated command prompt or create a bat file with this code.

So listen here; I bought an external hard drive about a year and a half ago. It stopped working after about two months, I was somewhat bummed, but i got over it. Now, i'm in need of some more storage and I'm trying to get it to work; The problem is that no matter how i try to interact with it, mainly attempting to uninstall the driver in device manager; It doesn't show up anywhere else and I'm not sure if I still have a chance of using it.
