Intel Xeon 5150

Hi there,

I'm running out of looking for an issue I have.
I have a GNU/Linux Debian 9 install on a Mac Pro 2,1 with two Intel Xeon 5150 @ 2.66 GHz, 32GB of RAM and plenty of GB hard drives.

Since this version is out of security update I tried to update this machine and soon I left Linux 4.9.0-17-amd64 x86_64 to Linux 5.10.0-10-amd64 x86_64 performance of the machine is decreased.
Not sure you can have access to this link but you multicore performance less than 2000%, yes I really wrote two thousand percent.

So I'm afraid to heard that those CPU are not anymore working on Linux (I tried multiple distributions), really sad..

Shall I upgrade to two Intel Xeon X5365 3.0GHz/8M/1333 Processors?

Any clue to help me?
Many thanks,

    Moving this from Red Hat Enterprises to Debian.

    Hi arochester,
    Thanks you for moving this to another place but not sure it is the good one.
    It is not related to Debian but Kernel itself and I could see now all the categories on the right side ;)

    Since both processors are enterprise level I was oriented here from someone who told me this community is very large and not focussed on only one distribution, since it is the case of my issue ;)
    I didn't find any information on Debian sites...
