Intel in the server market in the past has released Haswell -E / EP processor architecture, the final goal is the Xeon E7 series and now the product is Ivy Bridge-EX Xeon E7 v2 Series architecture, the new generation Xeon E7 v3 architecture codenamed Haswell-EX is featuring processor with maximum of 15 to 18 Cores and the maximum TDP is also raised to 165W.


Intel Xeon E7 series is for mission-critical, large-scale data center server processor, the interface is still LGA2011, but the core, threads, cache and memory capacity to support have increased dramatically. Intel released last February IVB-EX Xeon E7 v2 Series architecture, the next quarter will be released Haswell-EX Xeon E7 v3 architecture series and the series has been exposed in recent CPU IBM server specification.

CPU-World exposed the models and specifications of these processors, mainly Xeon E7-4800 v3 and E7-8800 v3 two series, the former cores are 8,10,12 and 14, the latter up to 18 cores.

Xeon E7-4800 v3 series TDP of 115W, but the processor core frequency is relatively low, the level of 1.9-2.2GHz, L3 cache, there are 20,25,30 and 35MB of four, each core is still 2.5MB of configuration.

Xeon E7-8800 v3 series of cores and TDP has improved significantly, before IVB-EX architecture up to 15 nuclear, TDP up to 155W, is now up to 18 nuclear, TDP maximum 165W. However, there are two “wonderful” –E7-8891 v3 is a 10-core, frequency 2.8GHz, but the L3 cache maintained 45MB, while the E7-8893 v3 is a four-core, but the frequency increased to 3.2GHz, 45MB L3 cache retains.

Haswell-EX Xeon E7 v3 processor architecture is likely to be released until next quarter, the price, in accordance with the practice will not change the current Xeon E7-8893 v2 price is $ 6,841, equivalent to 42,701 yuan to buy cars cars are enough.
