Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 and Xeon E5-2687W v2 Review: 12 and 8 Cores

by Ian Cutress |
The ultra-high-end enthusiast also wants all the bells and whistles, such as overclockability, a good range of DRAM speed support and top quality construction materials.
My goal was to find out where these two CPUs stand in what I consider ‘an enthusiast user’s scenario’, and as such we used the same benchmarks as in the AMD Kaveri launch article, involving gaming, compression, rendering, video conversion and 2D image to 3D modeling creation.

Xeon E5-2600 V2 Price List: Server Ivy Bridge-EP

by Ian Cutress |
With any luck we should be getting a couple of Ivy Bridge-E based server motherboards in to test, along with Xeon processors.
> Haswell Xeons, these processors, destined for 2P systems, will take on the E5 26xx naming scheme with V2 on the end, with L designating low power versions.

Intel Xeon E7 V2 Family Will Pack 15 Cores

by Niels Broekhuijsen |
The E7-8800 V2 chips would work in configurations that feature up to eight sockets and will feature 15 cores per CPU, along with Hyperthreading, resulting in 30 threads per socket.
They will also carry 30 MB of L3 cache and have quad-channel DDR3-1866 memory support, per socket.

Intel Planning 10-core Xeon E5-2600 V2 Ivy Bridge-EP CPU

by Tim Verry |
Each physical core has access to 256KB L2 cache and the chip has a total of 30MB L3 cache.
The E5-2600 V2 has 10 physical cores, and with HyperThreading it can handle a maximum of 20 threads.
