    CPU World has shown details about Intel's upcoming Haswell-based Xeon processors, you can read it over here. Xeon E7 v2 will arrive in Q4 2013, while Xeon E5-2600 v2 will launch a quarter earlier. Xe...

    lol.
    If power consumption is handled well and prices arent stupid, I'll be watching out for the lower end of this.
    They've gotta clock well though, so probably not for me, but it will be interesting to see.

    You forgot the link :)

    Why 15? Cmon intel, squish 1 more core to be reasonable.

    desktop 8 core (16 thread) would own, but its still faaar away.. Guess I'll have to settle with i7 4770k.

    That's hardly settling!:nerd:

    15 cores sounds odd. Needs to be an even number, its making my mild autism hurt my brain!

    It works out ok if consider a computer with zero cores, then there are 16 iterations :p

    I suppose it could be that far too few chips come out with 16 fully functional cores so they're harvested at 15 for consistency.

    *shrug* Just my 2c.

    It probably has 16 cores and they disable 1 to increase yields. They will probably have a lot of screw-ups with that many cores on 1 chip.

    Edit: Ninja'd... by almost 2 hours. :wanker:

    How are these haswell based when haswell uses ddr4 and isn't supposed to come out till 2014? Wrong info maybe?

    Because Haswell has an already artificially delayed release date of roughly June to July 2013 with everyone expecting it to be delayed by several more months. No competition, no rush. Otherwise it would have been out already.

    I heard nothing about Haswell using DDR4, is that correct?

    Haswell-EX server edition will use it, well apparently.

    Normal Desktop Haswell and Haswell-E is still DDR3

    Haswell EP is not Haswell.
    Saw the last post first, good to hear since I'll get more performance for the price out of DDR3. High speed DDR3 doesn't cost much at all unless prices have skyrocketed.

    But will the majority of Software use all those cores?? We all know the answer to this no seeing most software barely uses 2 or 3 hell alot still are single core minded still . I would be super excited if SOFTWARE actual used Multi Core Correctly about all these cores other wise

    And that is why it'll be Xeons with that many cores rather than a standard product. Sever applications will make use of all the cores.

    and yet it will still come to consumer based products and all the extra cores will be wasted, do to the simple fact Multi core are not used right to being with on consumer based. Like I said I would be more excited if Software actual used these cores.
