Haswell-EP chips to have up to 18 cores

Haswell-EP chips to have up to 18 cores

Intel’s Haswell architecture has been on the market for more than a year but no Haswell-based server chips have been released to date. This will all change soon with the arrival of the first server Haswell solutions. When they come you will see that the wait has been worth it – they will have up to 18 computational cores.

As expected the upcoming Intel server chips will carry the Xeon brand name. There will be a total of five models – Xeon E5-2699 v3, Xeon E5-2698 v3, Xeon E5-2697 v3, Xeon E5-2695 v3 and Xeon E5-2683 v3.

The Xeon E5-2699 v3 model will be the most powerful of them all. It will come with 18 cores in three sections (3 x 6). The remaining models will have fewer cores, likely 12 and 8 depending on the model. The new Xeon chips will run between 1.6 GHz and 3.5 GHz with no Turbo Boost enabled, while TDP will not go above 160 watts. It is expected that the new Haswell-EP processors will support DDR4 memory natively.

As of now there’s no word on the pricing or the release date.
