Once again, I put my dual Xeon® E5-2667v2 up against 5Ghz all-core overclocked Core™ i9-9900K on Asus Realbench software to find out who is the winner. All being equal with the same graphic card GTX 1060 6G. Of course, you guess it right. Modern CPUs are hard to beat. The real word performance is all that matter.
What do you think? Besides the i9 runs a bit hotter than the server class CPU’s due to being overclocked all core to 5.0Ghz. I have these dual Intel Xeon E5-2667 v2 processors in my homelab system that I build couple months ago and no complains whatsoever about them. They run stable and pretty much anything I can throw at them without a hitch. I select them due the the price being cheaper than some modern server class CPU and its availability on the market. You can easily find them on eBay.
Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2667 v2, 25M Cache, 3.30 GHz
Intel® Core™ i9-9900K Processor, 16M Cache, up to 5.00 GHz
