  • Dual Xeons Slow Mark

    Proliant DL380 G5 Slow CPU

    I just acquired a new server and after setting it up it seems slow. There are 2 Xeon Quad-Core 2.0 GHZ CPU's. I have installed a fresh copy of Server 2008R2. When I do the benchmark tests my desktop scores more points. Checked all the firmware updates. Ran Smart Start Diagnostics on ALL hardware. Enabled BBWC and battery on controller is good. Runs the same with or without and added nVidia 512mb video card.

    The Xeon E5335 isn't a speed daemon. It was launched 4 and a half years ago at a fairly low clock speed.

    Being so old, it of course compares rather badly to new machines. The Xeon E5335 is about on par with a new low powered laptop. Sorry to be the one to tell you.
