Report: Details On Intel's Haswell Server CPUs Emerge

While the rumor mill has been working hard regarding Intel's upcoming Haswell chips for the consumer market, it has been awfully quiet about the server market. All of a sudden, though, a great deal of information has appeared.

The Xeon 1200 V3 is the most logical successor to the Xeon 1200 V2. The 1200 V2 was based on the Ivy Bridge platform. Rumors indicate that the Xeon 1200 V3 chips will be part of the Denlow server platform, meaning they'll be based on the same LGA 1150 socket as the consumer desktop Haswell chips.

The Xeon 1200 V3 chips will carry either no onboard graphics, the GT1 chip or the GT2 chip. The GT2 chip that some of the Xeon 1200 V3 chips will carry is reportedly just as powerful as the Intel HD Graphics 4600 that we'll see on the consumer Haswell chips. The units with an integrated graphics chip will have the model name ending in a 5, rather than a 0, for those that don't carry integrated graphics.

Chips whose model names end with an L are low TDP chips, the lowest of which has a TDP of just 16 W.

* Due to a lack of clarity in the document, this is an assumed number.

Sadly, the document has been taken offline from Intel's website.

We can expect the Xeon 1200 V3 CPUs to appear between May 27 and June 7, 2013, possibly at Computex.

    Need to move up to 6 cores!

    This is just the lower mid-ranged for single socket servers and workstations not based on consumer i7s. They don't need six cores. That's what the X58/X79 sort of stuff is for. Wait for their Haswell successor, assuming that it's coming next instead of an Ivy successor.

    still at 4 cores = pathetic Intel, really pathetic

    There is already a 8core/16threads i7 in the works guys...

    What is with you people? You're all being just stupid. Intel already has CPUs with more than four cores. They'd need much larger CPUs and sockets if they were going to put in six or more cores and that'd be stupid because, again, this stuff is just the lower end Xeons. Mid-ranged Xeons will be up to six or eight cores, maybe ten for Haswell. High-end Xeons will probably be at fifteen to twenty cores. Stop trolling.

    Come on guys, this is the Xeon E3 family meant for small servers and workstations. They have good value too. E3-1230V2, for example, has the performance close to i7-3770 and the price of an i5.

    On the other hand, the Ivy-Bridge EP based Xeon E5s are rumored to have 10 cores / 20 threads, the EX based Xeon E7s, 15 cores / 30 threads.

Stop trolling.it is not a troll, low end xeons in 2013-15 (these will be around for years) should not be limited to 4 cores. integrated graphics have no place on a workstation cpu, and servers need more not fewer cores.

    Good for low end servers.
    But why they arent making 5 core chips and fill that space with (i dont know, maybe) more cache? No really. Im not some rocket scientist so explain why not.

    Chill out. Xeon Avoton is due prior to year end with 8 cores (16 if you count hyperthreading). They will not be Intel's penultimate power cores, but from an efficiency perspective they should blow away anything Intel has done before. For low end server chips, game time begin with Avoton at 22 nm.

    Currently, Intel Xeons substantively dominate every price point at which they compete in the server space. Avoton brings competition to a lower price point and provides Xeon with a platform to dominate the micro server space if they do it right. It is based on a sorta new core design that is not all vclogged up with accumulated pixie dust and crusted up hype.
