Intel announces 10-core Sandy Bridge Xeon E7 series

Written by Fudzilla staff


When 8 cores just don’t cut it
Intel has introduced a new series of Xeon server parts based on the 32nm Sandy Bridge core.

The new processors feature up to 10 cores, with hyperthreading and they are supposed to deliver a 40 percent performance increase over the Xeon 7500 series.

The E7-8870 is the new flagship, with 10 cores clocked at 2.4GHz and a TDP of 130W. In addition, Intel is offering low voltage versions with somewhat lower TDPs.

Prices for the new E7-8800/4800/2800 parts range from $774 to $4,616, for 1k quantities, of course.

Its just a Westmere-EX so odds are it doesn't have any of Sandy Bridges features... hence it being on LGA 1567.

These are not Sandy Bridge processors, they're Westmere-EX. These are expensive, compared to consumer processors and commodity 2S server parts. Compared to stuff like the POWER7, they're not.

Come on you fanboys, give credit when credits due. Intel is paving the way to a better future with higher processing power. It might not be as power efficent as AMD but still... for that price you dont really care bout bills.
AMD is always playing catchup. Its sad you cant admit that. This site is filled with amd fangirls.

Been waiting on intel to put out a another crazy CPU.

So 20 threads that's crazy.

The other thing about Westmere-EX, the masks and such are for a 12-core chip. It was originally supposed to be 12 cores, but intel has decided to release it at a maximum of 10 cores for whatever reason.

I don't know if it's TDP limitations or just a complete lack of competition. Probably both.

But will it run Crysis?

It is more power efficient. Intel rules the power efficiency.
