Released April, 2015
  • 2.2 GHz
  • 16 core

When dealing with prices in the range of $1,223 - $7,174 USD for bulk orders, it makes sense to offer a little choice to slightly up-sell potential buyers, but too many choices can defeat that purpose.

Intel Announces Xeon E7 v3 Processors Based on Haswell-EX

by Scott Michaud |
The E7-8880L v3 is a low power version, relatively speaking, which will also contains eighteen cores that are clocked at 2.0 GHz.
The largest model is the E7-8890 v3, which contains eighteen cores fed by a total of 45MB in L3 cache.

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.
