Intel Xeon E5-2680 v4

The Intel Xeon E5-2680 is a high-end processor based on the Broadwell architecture and is primarily used for workstations and servers (up to 2 sockets). The Intel Xeon E5-2680 v4 has 14 physical cores and can execute up to 28 threads simultaneously thanks to the Hyper-Threading technology.  The base clock of the 14 core CPU is 2.4 GHz, but can be raised up to 3.3 GHz via Turbo Boost if necessary. The integrated quad-channel memory controller can address up to 1.56 TB DDR4-2400 RAM, which results in a maximum memory bandwidth of 76.8 GB/s. Intel specifies the TDP of the Xeon E5-2680 v4 with 120 Watts, so the 14-nm chip is comparatively frugal for the high multi-thread performance. A stress test with the tool Prime95 resulted in a maximum consumption of 136 Watts. The CPU scales very well in multi-thread applications, but the Intel Xeon E5-2680 v4 is at a disadvantage when the application without multi-thread support. Higher-clocked processors like the Intel Core i7-6700K, for example, will be much faster in this case.
