Hello. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but how/where can I buy a new Xeon E3-1260L v5 processor? I've looked everywhere online, and all I can find are used/refurb units.
The specification page (https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/88175/intel-xeon-processor-e3-1260l-v5-8m-cache...) doesn't say it's discontinued so I'd please like to know if there's a way I can get it. Thank you.
Since it is from 2015, you will likely find only used processors. As far as refurb, I have never understood how sellers can say "refurbed" in reference to a processor or memory (except that they wiped off the thermal paste or dust or fingerprints). If it is not for sale on retail sites or distributors, then you have to settle for used, and take your chances.
I hope the information provided by Hill was informative.
Please if you have any other question, do no hesitate and let us know and we will be more than happy to assist you.
