Recommend a better proc for new Precision 7910? Outperformed by 7600

Hi everyone,

Just an I.T. guy here, I recently started deploying Precision T7910s to my guys and have received some feedback that our old T7600s were faster. I ran the SW Benchmark and sure enough, the proc looks to be the weak link.


I was hoping you guys would be able make some recommendations on replacement procs. It's worth noting that the 7910s are using DDR4 RAM, so whatever proc is selected will have to support it as well. Just want to make the guys using this everyday as happy as possible. Is it truly just the base clock speed killing us?

At the time of ordering, this was the best single-proc solution I had available.. but it's become apparent that it isn't going to do. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated, as is your time!


Thank you!
