Intel's Xeon E5-Series Line-Up Expands; Gets Explained

We got an early look at Intel's latest business-class processors with Intel Xeon E5-2600: Doing Damage With Two Eight-Core CPUs. However, that piece only covered one SKU (the workstation-oriented E5-2687W) in a very crowded line-up of dual-socket-capable chips.

Recently, the company expanded the dual-socket segment to include more entry-level models (the Xeon E5-2400s) and added a number of four-socket-capable processors (the Xeon E5-4600s).

The following list comes from our E5-2600 story and covers all 17 of those models.

In addition, there are now eight Xeon E5-4600 CPU models and nine Xeon E5-2400-series processors. The more detailed breakdown of those goes as follows:

    Would love to see Toms review one of the Quad Socket Xeon E5-4600..!!
  • amuffin
    Great price/performance, especially with dual socket boards. The quad core ones are around the 300 dollar range too!
  • mayankleoboy1
    prettier than the previous videos
  • juan83
    If I just could have that girl.. oh.. yes! and one of those Xeons too :P
  • I think clockspeed is a rather odd omission from that top table, are we just supposed to trust that the bigger model numbers with bigger TDPs are faster?
  • A Bad Day
    I wonder what are their price?
  • ashinms
    Wanna see some E7s. Quad socket 10 core procs FTW!
  • ta152h
    Kudos to the girl, she went from poor to mediocre. A big improvement in her presentation.

    I'm wondering if Intel included too many models. It's a bit crowded, and could easily confuse people looking into these products and cause analysis paralysis.

  • bit_user
    Hey, where in the charts are the E5-16xx models?

    How about some clock speeds?

    And no mention of DDIO and other E5 Xeon-specific features?

    A Bad DayI wonder what are their price?To darn high, for the most part.
