    Not so much or any for that matter 'coz Xeons also have TurboBoost so when it senses Single Threaded operation it boosts one core to 3.5-3.9 GHz (depending on model you have) so it's up to level of 3960singe core (unless you overclock 3960 to 4+Ghz ).

    I didn't know Xeos had that high clock speed now.
    They both have turbo boost so I guess if the Dual Xeons work at the same mhz they would be close on single threaded performance. Here at the office we have a dual xeon that reports as being only 2.6ghz, yet it does the marble scene in 38 minutes 20 seconds. We also have an i73960x at 3.3ghz that is noticeably snappier in modeler. I haven't done the marble scene on it, but someone posted a time for a stock 3960 of 1hr 16 min.

    I have [email protected] and Dual Xeon 2690 (2.9GHz stock and 3.8Ghz TurboBoost) and i can't say that i see the difference in modeler (with same GFX card), maybe if i would use StopWatch in some massive boolean or such functions then it would be noticeable but modeler is so slow with hi-poly that you can throw any machine on it and it's still slow so i guess with proper optimizations in modeler I could see difference.

    Well this is really embarrassing.
    I knew my dual quad E5410 Xeon system was very outdated, but I didn't expect it to be THAT slow in comparison. I guess its time for a new workstation.

    that something is wrong with the performance of your computer - can not leave as much time on this task for 4core/8threaded processor..

    I haven't tested my E5450 but it is very roughly half the speed of my W5580. Your CPUs are about 77% of that, so lets say very roughly about 3 hours for a render. Have you tried restarting & only Layout running & nothing else!

    This may have been highlighted already, but worth reiterating...

    Check your CPU core temperatures during a rendering session using something like SpeedFan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php) or CPUID (http://www.cpuid.com/). If the core temperatures exceed the maximum specified for your CPU then it will automatically throttle back it's performance to avoid catastrophic overheating and ultimate failure.

    If your CPU is overheating, check if you have fluff/dust clogging the heatsink vanes and/or the fan as this will decrease the flow of air through the heatsink and prevent efficient cooling of the CPU.

    I recently had an overheating problem with core temperatures of over 90C during renders accompanied by significantly degraded performance. Since I regularly clean the interior of the casing - including the heatsinks - I knew it had to be something else and called out the service engineer. It turned out the CPU heatsink hadn't been seated properly onto the CPU by the computer manufacturer and (probably as a result of this) the thermal conducting paste had dried out, which only exacerbated the situation. Now that a new heatsink has been fitted using silver-based thermal conducting paste the performance is a lot better - though by no means perfect. Since the PC is under a maintenance contract, I will be stress testing the CPU to check if the overheating has resulted in any damage to it and, if so, get it replaced.

    Hope that helps,
    Peter

    Over heating:

    I have swapped the intel heatsinks with Noctua towers (it's not worth the money with the old CPUs) its frightening how much dust builds up. It's worth removing the heatsinks & scrubbing them clean in the kitchen sink. Then replacing with some thermal past, stock Xeon setup is some thermal tape! it's a joke, & together with the dust it's a disaster!

    Just testing my new system



    Power


    with a lot of noise


    but still ... POWER !

    Dual Xeon E5-2680 by the way

    Go into BIOS & reduce the fan speed!

    Depending what Xeon box you got they are set up for a server room where fan noise is not an issue. Just keep an eye on CPU temp when rendering when you have reduced the fan speed. The Xeon MB sounds a loud alarm if CPUs are starting to overheat.

    Once you feel happy with the CPU temp after a few renders on hot days you will be ok.

    Also, even the Xeon CPU are thermally connected with tape & not paste (& have a poor area of coverage, about 60%). So at the very least pull the heatsinks off & replace with paste. You don't need to take the CPUs out of the sockets, just gently clean the top surface of the CPUs, & the back of the heatsinks.


    Or better still, for absolute peace & quiet change the heatsinks to Towers or Water Cooled:

    P.S. Extra (quiet) fan on Southbridge & RAM if possible is worth doing. I've had stinking hot days in the room & my all my boxes still run quietly. It's well worth changing the heatsinks for a quiet working environment.

    I built it myself so ... I did all of that
    It's just that the 2 pcs I already own are very silent so the difference is ... kinda obvious

    Work machine

    Dual E5-2630 2.3 GHz (12 cores 24 threads total)
    32GB RAM
    Quadro K5000
    Windows 7 64-bit

    57 minutes 37 seconds (rendered twice). For such a beast, seems rather disappointing in that it's only 60% faster than my 3770k.... but it's the lowest-end hex core. 3770k's OC'd seems to be the best bang for the buck.

    My 3930K overclocked is 1h 3 min so i think 3930K is better bang for buck than 3770K and fastest single socket machine you can buy currently . Actually any SB-E but 3960/3970 are way more expensive and overclock same as 3930K so 3930K is obvious choice.
