Intel to release new server chips next year

There’s no doubt that next year Intel will release a large number of new processors, including the highly-expected desktop Broadwell chips, but Broadwell will not be everything. Instead we will get some of everything including new Xeon processors, known as Xeon E7 v3.

The new Xeon chips are expected in Q2 2015. They will be based on the latest Haswell architecture and will be built on 22 nm tech process. The chips will boast more cores and more L3 cache and will support both DDR3 and DDR4 memory. Thus the most powerful members of the E7 line will have 18 processing cores and up to 45 MB of L3 cache. Impressive, isn’t it?

All in all the new Xeon line will have 11 different models – four of them will belong to the more budget-oriented E7-48xx line and the rest will belong to the high-performance E7-88xx line. The E7-48xx line will have the following chips – Xeon E7-4809 v3, E7-4820 v3, E7-4830 v3 and E7-4850 v3, while the faster E7-88xx line will offer these processors – Xeon E7-8860 v3, E7-8870 v3, E7-8880 v3, E7-8890 v3, E7-8867 v3, E7-8891 v3, E7-8893 v3 and E7-8880L v3.

There’s no technical information on the new chips as of now – we will get it closer to product launch.
