Workstation HP z600

Good morning, I ask for information about hardware for UEMS implementation. I'm willing to buy:

WORKSTATION HP Z600
DUAL INTEL XEON SIX CORE X5650 2,66 GHz
16 GB DDR3
500 GB

I have read that for some cpu there are problems to run UEMS, this configuration may be fine or it is not compatible with UEMS implementation.
Thank you

Alessio

It is Westmere architecture without AVX. I'm not sure if UEMS executable builds still support those. If nobody knows here, I would advice to ask Robert Rozumalski, bacause I suspect there is big chance they do not. However I also would advise purchasing something newer (=faster). This server will draw too much energy and be very inefficient in running WRF for such cost.

Ok, looking at something new, an I7 8700 with 16 GB ram ddr4 2666 could be better?
Can you recommend me another CPU? Ryzen 7 2700?

Thanks for the info.
Consequently an 8th generation I7 gives me both energy savings and performance.
That said I will buy the7 8700 or 8700k to run UEMS considering the quality ratio
price.
Ubuntu 18.04 will be the next to be installed as soon as the components arrive.
