Gen10+ Anyone got one yet?


Recommended Posts

My Xeon E-2246G CPU is on the way. Hope to swap CPUs within next week. Was curious whether you’ve seen any benefit of having the integrated graphics with this CPU? For example, does Windows Server take advantage of Intel QuickSync hardware acceleration at all? Or does the motherboard simply not recognize the GPU exists since the stock Xeon CPU it was designed to work with didn’t have integrated graphics?

Decided to buy one. Also saw ILO advanced keys are available free from HP for 2020.   Got this card. Couldn’t find one that allowed 2 x M.2 NVMe SSD drives though:   SilverStone Technology M.2 PCIE A

As this server supports PCIe bifurcation, I think I would try one of these for dual NVMe: https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/accessories/addon/AOC-SLG3-2M2.php

Upgraded to E-2246G. Night and day difference from the stock E-2224 Xeon CPU. Don’t know why they didn’t include this one in first place. Like a completely different performance improvement.

Nice, did you run any tests between the old Xeon and the new one?

Should imagine people will want to know how much bang per buck they get..

Unfortunately not, but I also notice going from 4 cores without hyper threading to 6 cores with HT, the CPU seems to actually run at lower CPU utilization during idle. Which isn’t bad considering my HPE G10+ mostly runs at a low idle as my VMs aren’t very intensive. Honestly, my HPE is more of a file server; I should really be adding more VMs or finding uses for them. If I didn’t already have a UniFi Cloudkey, I’d migrate that to a VM.

UK cost of Gen10+ is around £700 (https://www.box.co.uk/products/keywords/gen10+plus/ex/true)

Cost of CPU is around £400 (https://www.senetic.co.uk/product-cm8068404227903/)

So an upgrade costing more than 50% of the original server price should be like night and day 😎

I'm running ESXi on one of mine, so I'm tempted to upgrade the CPU... but then I might just end up buying another Gen10+ as I'm replacing the 4 Gen8 MicroServers, so I should really buy 4 of these 🤣

Pentium model is around £450 (no point buying the £700 model if you are going to change the CPU anyway) and was recently covered under one of eBay’s money off deals so was even cheaper, i was tempted to change my second Gen8 too but its rather expensive by the time I’ve changed the CPU and put 64GB RAM in, the reality is i don’t need it as much as it would make migrating VMs between the two easier.
