One of my old workstations with the XEON 2696-V3 is due for an upgrade and decided to try my luck and acquired an OEM XEON Platinum 8136 chip ($850) and the gamble paid off since this CPU is not officially supported in the retail channel. I ran some benchmarks such as cinebench R20 and got a score of 9600 points. The motherboard is X11SRL-F. Let me know what other benchmarks you guys want me to run to put this monster chip through its paces! Currently I only have 4 sticks of ECC DDR4 2166 RAM so the CPU is not running in six channel yet.
