    Hi there,
    Maybe I got a little confused. I'm a heavy CPU user, not much about GPU.

    I can get a $3799 nMP with E5-1680 v2
    I can get a HP desktop workstation with E5-2630 v4 at a 15% higher price.

    E5-1680 v2 is marked over 17000 score while E5-2630v4 is marked only 14000 score at
    So the $3799 is better/faster machine than the HP one, even though the HP one is actually more expensive?

    Isn't the E5-1680 v2 a very very old CPU goes back to 2012, while E5-2630 v4 is very new? Which one is more powerful?

    Thank you

    The E5-2630 v4 is a low end CPU with a low base clock.

    Look at and pick one with a higher clock.
