Intel Xeon E5-2697 v3 

Released July, 2014
  • 2.6 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.

The new Haswell architecture would further leverage the performance over the existing Ivy Bridge architecture based Xeon family delivering more performance with improved efficiency which is the key role of effectiveness in the enterprise and workstation scape.

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

by Ian Cutress |
www.anandtech.com
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 |
www.pcper.com
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.
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.

Intel Xeon E5 Version 3: Up to 18 Haswell EP Cores

by Johan De Gelas |
www.anandtech.com
However, it's not a case of the Haswell's L3 cache being a lot worse: the 20MB L3 cache of the Xeon E5-2667 v3 is only slightly slower than the Xeon E5-2690 and is still faster than the Xeon E5-2697 v2 (30MB).
Of course, those kind of bandwidth numbers only matter for specific HPC benchmarks as the L3 cache (30-45MB L3) will take care of most of the requests.
