6 core Ivy Brdige CPU's (22nm) When?

So there are 2 generations of hex core Intel chips out there, when and were are the hex core 22nm chips? and at 22nm we should have consumer oct core CPUs' too. I have been waiting to upgrade to a socket 2011 CPU and motherboard but I think I will wait for 22nm chips.

I am sure they are on the roadmap? anyone have links or information on them?

if you look for roadmaps the only mention you might find of them is IVB-E (skt 2011), but as others have mentioned its due in mid 2013, which is precisely the same time as haswell.

other than that there are xeons with hex core. Why do you feel you need hex?

There are also the octo-core Xeon Sandy Bridge EP CPUs as well.

Asking someone why they feel they need something is like asking them why they spent the extra money on a 486 instead of a 386 back in the day (its trivial).

I work in IT full time and I will be running SQL Server on it as a test environment. Since this is my personal machine, I will also be using it for decoding and encoding 1080p and 4k HD video as well as using it to batch process directories of 1000 36MP Raw files in succession at one time.

The complete build would be a Hex or Oct core system with 64gb of ram, 20TB of hard drive space and 2 Eyefinity 7990's (when they come out) driving 6 30 inch LCD's.

I am just moving the 30 inch LCD's from the current system to the new one. But I am waiting for 22nm Hex and Oct core CPU's and Xenon's won't work because I need to use 2 or 3 Graphics cards. (Basicly server mother boards won't work.)

It is unclear whether there will be an IB-E, or when it will arrive. Intel put out some info a month or so back indicating that IB-E would be "delayed"; that is the last we have heard I believe.

What about a board like the ASUS P9X79 WS? It is not quite a "server" board, but it will support the Xeon processors (with the right BIOS). It is certainly set up to use 2 and 3 cards in SLI/XFire, and even a fourth card.

why not go with AMD? you can get a Quad socket and 64 cpu cores (4x16 cores per socket) and get two pcie 16 128 GB or 1TB of ecc ram

The few AMD based computers I have used in the past with the same gpu's, ram, os, hard drives never perform the same in real world situations, Might be different now, but they take longer to do the same work, even though they have more cores, or higher, ghz, etc;
