Xeon CPU 1260L vs 1265L V2

Hi guys,

 

I currently have an Old 4bay synology DS408 for backup/storage. It's build in media server happily serves my PS3 and IOS devices...

I also have a 2012 Quad Core Mac mini with SSD drive  running 2 windows vm concurrently  and  a Plex server. My media is stored mostly as MP4 so safe to say I rarely transcode.

 
I bought a Gen8 GT106 last year (... seems to cheap not to buy at £115!), upgraded  to 16GB ram from spares  and then left it gathering dust when I realized that it does not look like it is fast enough as a single box solution so I can retire the Mac mini + synology
 
Anyway came across the Qnap TVS 471/671 and thought that looks powerful enough (post cpu upgrade) to handle my requirements BUT I am not so sure about the QNAP's implementation of virtualization since all my multiple vms are either in vmware or virtual box formats and would rather just copy over to new ssytem rather than start re-creating vm's
 
This got me thinking that if the Gen8 is upgraded to a Xeon 1260L  or 1265L V2, I could successfully go down to a single "Small" unit for all my requirements. 
Is this possible in theory?
 
I know wrong place to be asking but should I just go for the Qnap?
 
And finally  how different are these 2 cpu's above?  is it worth holding out for the 1265L V2 if I ever find it.

 

Thanks

The 1265L V2 will run at 3.1ghz with all 8 threads being hammered and peak at 38 watts in a prime 95 test

 

someone with a 1260 would have to tell you about it

If the 1260L is anything like my 32nm i7 2820QM which it should run almost the same

 

It wiill prime at 2.5ghz 8 threads at around 45.2 watts

 

so 600mhz less speed 7.3w more power

Hi Shonk,

 

sorry for the extended questions ...

 

I take it the figures you quoted are under load?.

 

My Ram is Kingston 2x 8GB DDR3 1,600 MHz DIMM ECC Memory Module. Will this be ok with the 1260L becasue ARK  shows  memory type as DDR3 1066/1333 compared to 1265L V2 which is DDR3 1333/1600

 

Thanks

You _might_ be able to get ActiveSync working with ffmepg for transcoding on the 1265, though. I don't think anyone has tried it yet.

If you mean QuickSync then it doesn't works on the Gen8 Microserver even if you have the 1265Lv2. The Intel GPU device needed doesn't appear at all on the bus. There may be a register you can poke in the PCI config space that reenables it however.

I do, indeed, mean QuickSync.

 

Interesting. I guess that means the pins on the socket required for the GPU to work aren't wired up.
