Intel Prepping 40 New Xeons for the First Half of 2012

There will be seven 8-core CPUs in the first quarter, including the Xeon E5-2690, two 6-core processors (Xeon E5-1660 and 1650) as well as three quad-core processors including the E5-2609 and dual-core processor E5-2637.

For Q2, Intel has apparently scheduled eleven Ivy Bridge H2-series CPUs and seven additional Xeon processors, including the Xeon E5-2470. There will also be several low-power models, including the eight-core Xeon E5-2650L and six-core E5-2630L, both of which will debut in Q1, as well as the Xeon E5-2450L and six-core E5-2430L in Q2.

    mmmmm... duel 8 core with hyperthreading :) 16 cores, 32 threads of pure joy to match with 64GB of Ram. That would be fun if only I could afford it.

    I wouldn't mind a 16 core editing/gaming build. Too bad it would cost $5000 probably

    It would be so nice to be able to do a Xeon build, without breaking the bank.

    These are the sandy bridge based server CPUs, correct?

    If AMD releases 50 new processors I think they will win.

    Nevermind, I'm apparently blind and can't read the Ivy Bridge part.
