What options might I have to upgrade my workstation? Current configuration is Intel motherboard SC5520 with dual Xeon quad-cores, 5520, and 32g ECC RAM. Everything works great just need more processing power. Would like to optimize what I have if economically possible, before moving up to more expensive workstation.
I am glad you asked. You could still upgrade the processor in your system. You could use the following list as a reference.
Keep in mind that for processors in the 5600 family you need to have a minimum board revision to support it. If possible please provide us with the PBA of your board.
