Hy everyone!

When these units came up earlier this year there was a lot of talking about it over the web, but I just came to realize one thing: There are 3 different specs for the Xeon E5-1650.

Intel's product brief (which has been replicated by server companies) says 15MB L3:

Intel Ark says 10MB:

Everyone else says 12MB:

Every reseller I've seem claims to be 12MB as well.

So, is Intel mistaken once or twice about their own product? :sol:

No, the material from Intel is a pre-production spec sheet. The actual specs are with the resellers. You have to understand that the pre-production materials are subject to the fine print: "Intel may make changes to specifications and product descriptions at any time, without notice." (Quoted from the fine print on the pdf you reference).
