Intel announces 10-core Sandy Bridge Xeon E7 series

Written by Fudzilla staff


When 8 cores just don’t cut it
Intel has introduced a new series of Xeon server parts based on the 32nm Sandy Bridge core.

The new processors feature up to 10 cores, with hyperthreading and they are supposed to deliver a 40 percent performance increase over the Xeon 7500 series.

The E7-8870 is the new flagship, with 10 cores clocked at 2.4GHz and a TDP of 130W. In addition, Intel is offering low voltage versions with somewhat lower TDPs.

Prices for the new E7-8800/4800/2800 parts range from $774 to $4,616, for 1k quantities, of course.
