    What's the LET consensus on E7?

      LET look at it often based on Cores. 1 CPU is RRP $7000. For that you can get 3-4 Dual E5 nodes off ebay. Which has a lot more cores in total

      E7 is very rare - You basically only use them if you have a very special usage case (like 3way+ CPU mirroring for military and financial setups, E5 only does 1+1 while E7 would do up to 1+7) or you, due to SW limitation, need 288 2.5Ghz cores with 12TB RAM (8x1.5TB) in a single machine.

      For this ability you pay a HIGH premium - per benchmark point E7 is extremely expensive compared to even E5 and the surrounding HW (MB, case, RAM) is not cheap either.

      I've only really seen it used when a company relies on certain software that needs to be run on one machine. It doesn't make sense for most people. I have seen some E7's on Dell Outlet if you want one though ;)
