Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

Hello again. Finally my SSD arrived from China. Here is my score in Unigine.

Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

Here are my results.

I made them on all 3 tests available from this developer.

 

Heaven, Valley (same settings) and Superposition (720P mode).

 

As you can see there's nothing even close to doubled video perfomance on i5's Haswell GT2 core.

But you'll have doubled CPU perfomance (Cinebench score i5/Xeon comparison at the 1st page) if running Xeon on this Tiny.

Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

I have added another 4GB of RAM making of 8GB in total. Now my score is higher. Still, not double than yours.

 edit:

 

My Windows 10 is still 'new', so it updated itself today and my score went up even more. I think I will stay with i5-4590T for gaming purposes until I will hunt cheap i7-4790T or this mystical E3-1268 v3 Smiley Very Happy

 edit 2:

 

There are some E3-1268L v3 cpu's on ebay for about 130USD at the moment ( free shipping ), but they are ES samples. As Eutechnyx said earlier, there are almost no informations about this CPU compatibility on internet. Does anybody knows what is the difference between ES and non-ES samples of this CPU?

 

edit 3:

 

There is a new BIOS version: fbjyd4usa. Updated without problem.

Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

You can read many discussion threads about ES processors. Just google a bit...

 

Basically, there are always several revisions of ES CPU's produced before final RTM version. So called "steppings".

While earliest may have non-working video core, disabled power saving and virtualization technologies etc, latest of them are intended for testing purposes by mainboard manufacturer's, bios developers etc. and are absolutely identical to final verison released chips.

The most common rule about them - make a research to determine the latest pre-release stepping to buy.

I personally know several threads on our local "overclocking" forums where some members selling such processors on a permanent basis, by dozens. Some threads have more than one hundred pages. Unable to find any dissatisfied feedback post there. Buyers know what to expect and buy them cheap (ES version of 7th gen 7600k cost twice cheaper comparison normal 7600k) thus happy.

 

Found regular, non-ES 1268, pricing is close to what you've posted. I think it is a great idea to buy it through eBay with PP protection - in case it won't work in this system, you can always return it and get all your money back.

Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

Hello, I own the 2013 M93P 10AB. Since has it been confirmed that the 1268L V3 was compatible on it? Or is it better to leave on the 1275l V3?

Knowing that I do not use it at all for video games but only for surfing the internet.

If I understand correctly in all cases I have to make updates from the beginning for the bios? I currently have version FBKT87AUS. Thanks for your help.

Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

Yes. 1268L v3, 1265L v3 and 1275L v3 will run just fine on this Tiny's.

Decide purely on the best offer price you're able to find.

Don't forget to update and verify whole firmware block (EC, BLCK, BIOS) before installing a new CPU to avoid problems.

 

BTW, there's currently one great deal with 1268L v3 CPU on eBay. 5 days till the end.

Re: Upgrading M93p Tiny Processor

thank you so much ! for the 1268l you speak of it? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-E3-1268L-v3-ES-LGA-1150-CPU-Integrated-graphic-Good-condition/26...

I made 3 random bios updates until the last one. how to be sure that all the blocks are ok?

and if I understood the most powerful it is the 1275l and the 1265l the weakest? thanks again

Re: ThinkCentre M93p Tiny: upgraded processor to Xeon E3 1275L V3 (CPU)

Does anyone know if the newer E3-1265L v4 would work in the M93P?

Re: ThinkCentre M93p Tiny: upgraded processor to Xeon E3 1275L V3 (CPU)

Definitely no, because it's 5th gen CPU. M93p was designed to run 4th gen only.
