Dual Xeon E5-2690 V2 (10-core, 3.0GHz): 25.57
Dual Xeon E5 2697 V2 (12-core, 2.7GHz): 22.66

By comparison, the older Dual E5-2687W (8 Core, 3.1Ghz) were scoring between 23.97 and 25.07.

What's even more interesting is that the Geekbench scores returned exactly what you would expect in terms of a speed boost going from the 16-core system to the 20 core to the 24 core.


I described the reason for this behavior in post #55. What Puget System measured, was basically never a dual 10-core or dual 12-core system. They effectively measured dual 8-core systems (combined 16 cores with 32 threads due to Hyperthreading) with different frequencies (as the Windows OS function used in R11.5 doesn't return more than 32 threads, even when the machine has the capability).

Methinks Cinebench R15 is due

Yes let's hope so! My 2650v2 system is hopefully coming this week after a bit of a delay on the mobo. Those replies from Maxon are very evasive though as you couldn't have been much clearer in the questions. I think they know the current version is showing signs of age and hopefully a new one is in the offing.

If you're really keen to compare them in a C4D environment, you could always open the Cinebench scene and go about comparing times. I'd rather wait for the pros to do it though

I don't think this is due until next year.

I'd welcome the extra cores, but the single core performance is worse than what I get now.
Hopefully there's a higher end offering at some point in the near future.

I think it is enough if the tests indicate achieved details. It is evident that at the top are dual systems, and the number of 3114 points is analogous to the former 31.14 pips r11.5 cinebench test. In other words, a 2697 e5 v2 generates about 17 points under the "old" r11.5 or about 1,600 per new cinebench test, which is more than fine. I do not understand how anyone can say that's not enough?
