Intel Xeon E5-2608L v3 

Released July, 2014
  • 2 GHz
  • Hexa core

Low quality conversion loves faster individual cores, hence the W processor wins out due to its higher full-load frequency.

For example, the on-die bus has been updated to include two fully buffered rings, a necessary addition to support the extreme core counts launching today.

Intel Haswell-EP Xeon 12 Core Review: E5-2650L V3 and E5-2690 V3

by Ian Cutress |
Similarly to the E5-2687W V3, the moment we hit a frequency the system does not like, it returns as a complete failed POST rather than a BSOD.
As part of this review we were able to source two E5-2650L V3 CPUs with a dual CPU motherboard and offer a more competitive analysis at 130-135W total TDP against the E5-2690 V3.
It might also come to pass that some server motherboard manufacturers will end up supporting the DDR4-2133 at 3DPC, similar to some efforts made with Patsburg.
Low quality conversion loves faster individual cores, hence the W processor wins out due to its higher full-load frequency.
This chart shows how an aggressor VM can start to degrade performance until cache monitoring detects this, partitions the cache, and restores packet performance.
The core will slow during the execution of the AVX instruction in order to maintain TDP limits, which may cause the frequency to drop.
The previous Ivy Bridge-EX flagship had 4.31 Billion transistors configured on a 541mm2 so its easy to tell that the Haswell-EP takes die size and transistor count to a new level.
The Xeon E5-2600 V3 lineup is going to be aimed at the HPC server and workstation market featuring 23 E5-2600 V3 SKUs including the flagship Xeon E5-2699 V3 which boasts 18 Cores, 36 threads, 45 MB of L3 cache and a high price of $4115 US.
