Intel Xeon E5-2695 v3 

Released July, 2014
  • 2.3 GHz
  • Processing Cores
5.5 Out of 10

The price difference between the 14 core model and the 16 core model is nearly $1000, making budgets and workloads being important factors in this decision.
by Ian-Cutress (Nov, 2014)
For Xeons, the price difference for more cores or more frequency never makes much sense if you calculate the difference in terms of power, but becomes more realistic when the time-to-complete for intensive workloads is taken into account.

Intel Haswell-EP Xeon 14 Core Review: E5-2695 V3 and E5-2697 V3

by Ian Cutress |
The prevalence of multithreaded code is server and workstation environments make the frequency difference extremely important, especially when it comes to the types of workloads that have frequent memory delays and accesses.
If it happens in a core as part of the logic or caches, that core can be fused off and the die can sold as a lower core part.

Eighteen-core Xeon E7 v3 Based on Haswell-EX in Q2'15

by Scott Michaud |
If that is not enough cores, then you can pick up an eight-socket motherboard and load it up with multiple of these.
While Ivy Bridge-EX was available with up to 15 physical cores per processor, double that with HyperThreading, Haswell-EX is increasing that to 18, or 36 simultaneous threads with HyperThreading.
