8-core desktop Processor of Haswell Series released, after Haswell-E now Intel today announced at the Opening of Fall IDF Conference, Haswell-EP Xeon architecture E3-2600 v3 series processors, compared to the previous generation V2 family of up to 12 core and 24 threads , in the all new E5-2600 v3 number of cores are increased to 18 and to 36 threads, cache capacity also increased by 50 percent to 45MB, support DDR4-2133 memory, the maximum capacity of memory support is 1.5TB.

Before we have repeatedly reported some cases on Haswell-EP architecture processors, which is the dual Intel server market for server and workstation processors. Architecture is still 22nm Haswell, shortly before the release of the desktop Core i7 5960X / 5930K / 5820K are based on the Haswell-E processors, up to 8 cores, while Haswell-EP outstanding multi-threaded performance, up to 18 cores 36 threads.

Haswell-EP E5-2600 v3 Specifications

Specifically, the Xeon E5-2600 v3 series is with 4 to 18 cores, TDP is 55 to 145W, workstation-class slightly higher, reaching 160W. They use R3 Socket R3, which is LGA2011-3, supports four channels DDR4-2133MHz, 1866/1333/1333 under the support of two memory per channel, the maximum capacity of memory support is 1.5TB, and DDR4-2133 per channel can only support one memory capacity is 768GB.

With two generations of products, Xeon E3-2600 v3 also supports two QPI bus speed of up to 9.6GT/s.

As the cores of this generation processors are significantly increased to 18, Intel Haswell-EP is divided into three levels: 14-18 core of HCC series, by 4 array (including the core and the corresponding LLC circuit) and two groups of memory controller, at second is 10-12 MCC series, three groups by the two groups of memory arrays and controllers, and at this last is is the nucleus 4-8 LCC series, the two groups of memory arrays and a group controller.

E5-2600 v3 Xeon processor prices

With 18 Cores we can expect from Intel that the price would not be cheap, but for now the price of real 18-core and 16-core Xeon E5-2699 v3 and E5-2698 v3 is actually not officially listed, the price is still unknown, but the 14-core E3-2697 v3 will be available at $ 2,702.
