P71 Intel Xeon E3-1535M v6 Processor 16 PCIe Lane CPU M.2????

Q: P71 Intel Xeon E3-1535M v6 Processor 16 PCIe Lane CPU M.2????

So the Intel Xeon E3-1535M v6 Processor got 16 PCIe Lanes, The P5000 (as equipt in my config) consumes 16 I would say.....right so doed that mean that the attacherd M.2 Drives run on the reg. SATA bus? If so that bottle necks the performance.Does somebody know the MB config????

Preferred Solution: P71 Intel Xeon E3-1535M v6 Processor 16 PCIe Lane CPU M.2????

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.)


Hi, I was told that P50 with Xeon E3-1535M v5 processor is not available any more. Is this really true? If so, what are the reasons?

The reason is to reduce the size, and it increase battery life.     You can get an internal optical drive on the P70, but to my knowledge, there is not even room to put an optcical drive on a P50, so I think one fo the dealers is confused. Good Luck

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.

At least XEON E3-1535M v5 is available for selected EU P50 models. Dell Workstation M7710 has 6920HQ as an option. Will Lenovo USA bring these two CPUs to the US market any time soon?

A:Will XEON E3-1535M v5 or I7 6920HQ be available fo...

I checked with the product manager for the P series and wanted to pass along the following information:

Lenovo does not offer the 1545 or 1575 on P50. This is because both of these CPUs are paired with the Iris Pro graphics which requires a different thermal assembly than Lenovo designed for the ThinkPad P50. 
While those CPUs are slightly faster (0.1GHz) than the CPUs paired with Iris graphics (P530), the trade-off to accommodate the bigger TDP didn?t make sense as the vast majority of Lenovo customers ask for discrete graphics and really don?t want/use the Intel integrated graphics in the first place.
The 1535 is available in the US, but it?s not showing on the US website for Lenovo.com.  The product manager has sent a note to that team to get that CPU posted on the site so customers can build with it. Rather than wait, feel free to call in and work directly with a Lenovo representative to spec out a 1535 system. In the US you can reach Lenovo sales for ThinkPad Mobile Workstations at 1-855-253-6686.

I hope this information assists you with your purchasing decision.
Thank you,

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 have a question about Xeon processor's, would it be more efficient to run 3 or 4 processor's in a server, is it better for them to work in tandem?

A:Xeon processor

Unless you're going to be running a file server for 100 or more computers using it heavily, I wouldn't go over 2 processors (Athlon MPs aren't extremely expensive, and do the job well). However, I'd set up the network as follows for 50 or less computers:

Dual Processor (doesnt have to be fast) Domain Controller

Dual Processor Domain Controller back up (very important -- it would SUCK to lose all your user names and domain information, and remember, downtime reflects poorly on you)

Dual Processor (faster then others) File Server
And add File Servers as needed. This set up is cost efficient, and if you use RAID 5, you wont lose data if one disk drive goes. You keep the File Servers seperate from domain controllers, and keep everything running well.
So, to answer your question, NO, I do not think anything over 2 processors is needed.

I'm building a new dual processor workstation and I'm trying to find a pair of socket 771 xeon processors that are under $300. I'm looking at the following:

xeon 5120
xeon 5320
xeon 5060

I'm leaning towards the 5320 since they are quads. The 5120 are cheaper but dual cores; the 5060 are higher mhz but have the 667 fsb. Main use if for video and audio capturing/editing in Adobe Premiere. Any suggesions or other choices would be a big help .

Right now, I have a P4 2.26 GHz processor in my PC that needs replaced. Looking at the motherboard documentation, it says it can accept up to a 3.0Ghz P4 processor with up to 533 MHz system bus.

My question. Is it possible to replace it with, like a 2.8 GHz Xeon processor? Would the performance be that much different? Would it be worth the extra cost? Or, should I just go for a regular P4 processor to replace it?

A:Possible to change processor to Xeon?

I believe that going from a P4 to a Xeon, requires a motherboard change.

Update:After put the XEON E3 1275L V3 to M83 with latest BIOS update, the M83 recognise the XEON CPU and display correctly on BIOS information.no need to use the 90W power adaptor since the original 65W adaptor is good enough to handle this 45W XEON chip, I do the stress test with seige-win for > 4hours on this M83 tiny with XEON , it did very well job without any sign of exhausted, the benchmark test show it is nearly double compare with the default core i5-4950TNo more hotter than the core i5.I bought the lenovo 90W  power adaptor with 29.99$ on ebay ( may be a fake one from china) but it seem to overheated than the 65W lenovo adaptor, so should not buy this 90W, ( Lenovo sells this at 69,99$ , so take this one if you can)

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 considering, mostly just for the fun of it, upgrading the processor in my M93p Tiny desktop. According to CPU World, the socket type is a Socket 1150 / Socket LGA1150 / Socket H3. My M93p currently has a Intel Core i5-4570T (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4570T.html), dual-core 2.9 GHz. I would like to put a quad-core processor in it, but I am concerned with the potential for increased power consumption and thermal load.
I am looking at the following options for upgrading it:
i5-4690K (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4690K.html)
i5-4570S (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4570S.html)
i7-4785T (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4785T.html)
i7-4790K (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4790K.html)
As I said, my major concern is increased power consumption and thermal load. The Thermal Design Power (TDP) of my current processor is 35 watt. The TDP of the processors I am looking at upgrading to range from 35 watts (the lower powered i7-4785T, not my first choice) to 88 watts. If I go with a TDP of 65 watts or 88 watts, is my heat sink going to be able to handle the thermal load? And is the power supply going to be able to handle the added power consumption. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

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.

I've been having a series of crashes on my Z420 whilst rendering 3D models and generally whilst using the 3D software (cinema 4D). It's using 100% of all 8 cores when rendering and it overheats and crashes, with no notice. I'm wanting to look into the HP liquid cooling solution but I can't find it anywhere online, I've really not got a clue where to get it from and I'm really hoping someone can help me out here by pointing out where to get them because I can't even find anything on the HP site? I'm not willing to alter the affinity of cinema 4D to less cores because I'm told by the IT guy it will just overheat it anyway and it will be at 100% for longer which could lead to huge problems. Oh and software that throttles processes won't work because I'm on windows 7. All help will be massively appreciated!

A:HP Z420 Workstation liquid cooling soloution for Intel Xeon ...

Hi, HP does offer liquid cooling for some workstations. You might want to contact HP Support or HP Sales for availability of water cooling for your particular model Z420. Review this manual page 6. The E5-1620 only has four cores (eight threads using hyperthreading).  Review the above referenced manual page 3.  Check with the application software manufacturer and find out what they suggest for helping with your issue.  Will a processor with more cores help? Are there other ways and technology (SSD or a faster video card, TELSA GPU processor) that will assist with the rendering process?

Hi, This is about my Thinkpad P50 Xeon 64 GB Ram machine with RAM installed both on top (under the keyboard) and bottom. When I move the laptop - especially while holding the machine at the bottom or when I put it on a table or my lap, the machine freezes.It freezes in whatever state it was in - if the screen was on - it freezes with the screen on and if the screen was off due to inactivity - it freezes with the screen off. The only thing that I can do is to long press the power button and get it to reboot. I have been very carefully holding the laptop from the side and taking extra care while putting it on the table as a workaround... I have not seen it happen while moving the machine into the slept mode.With the cover closed - the machine goes in the sleep mode.I have not (yet) seen the issue occur when I bring it up from the sleep possibly because I have been bringing up the machine only once the machine is completely in a stable state like on a table or a flat surface... Hope someone can help me understand and fix the problem. I have been facing the problem for a year and had reported it to Lenovo while I was still covered in warranty but got no help - was just asked to re-install windows....

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 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.

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.

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?

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.
