We have known for a while that the Ivy Bridge-E launch will supposedly take place in a few weeks time, with information about pricing of the consumer components coming to light recently.  Despite the high cost of entry for consumers, the business aspect of these processors along the Xeon brand is arguably the more poignant and certainly the more profitable aspect of the business.  Recently CPU-World has put many of the pieces of the puzzle together, from a variety of leaks from partners, in terms of which processors are being released, their intimate details, and importantly, pricing.

To follow on the naming scheme of Sandy Bridge -> Ivy Bridge -> Haswell Xeons, these processors, destined for 2P systems, will take on the E5 26xx naming scheme with V2 on the end, with L designating low power versions.  We have the following list to browse and prepare servers for:

Model Cores Frequency L3 cache TDP Pre-order price
Xeon E5-2603 v2 4 1.8 GHz 10 MB 80 Watt $231.62
Xeon E5-2609 v2 4 2.5 GHz 10 MB 80 Watt $337.03
Xeon E5-2620 v2 6 2.1 GHz 15 MB 80 Watt $464.48
Xeon E5-2630 v2 6 2.6 GHz 15 MB 80 Watt  
Xeon E5-2630L v2 6 2.4 GHz 15 MB   $701.01
Xeon E5-2637 v2 4 3.5 GHz 15 MB   $1140.99
Xeon E5-2640 v2 8 2 GHz 20 MB 95 Watt $1013.54
Xeon E5-2643 v2 6 3.5 GHz 25 MB 130 Watt  
Xeon E5-2650 v2 8 2.6 GHz 20 MB 95 Watt $1335.85
Xeon E5-2650L v2 10 1.7 GHz 25 MB 70 Watt $1395.91
Xeon E5-2660 v2 10 2.2 GHz 25 MB 95 Watt $1590.78
Xeon E5-2667 v2 8 3.3 GHz 25 MB 130 Watt $2320.64
Xeon E5-2670 v2 10 2.5 GHz 25 MB 115 Watt  
Xeon E5-2680 v2 10 2.8 GHz 25 MB 115 Watt $1943.93
Xeon E5-2687W v2 8 3.4 GHz 20 MB 150 Watt $2414.35
Xeon E5-2690 v2 10 3 GHz 25 MB 130 Watt $2355.52
Xeon E5-2695 v2 12 2.4 GHz 30 MB 115 Watt $2675.39
Xeon E5-2697 v2 12 2.7 GHz 30 MB 130 Watt $2949.69

Most of these cores will feature Hyperthreading, giving between 4 and 24 threads within an 80-150W envelope.  These prices are currently listed as consumer based pre-order prices, and equate to ~12-30% more than the current Sandy Bridge-E offerings.  We expect none of these parts to be overclockable via the multiplier, following Intel's previous Xeon launches.

With any luck we should be getting a couple of Ivy Bridge-E based server motherboards in to test, along with Xeon processors.  Interestingly enough, vague rumours of a 15 core chip have not evolved into anything concrete as of yet, at least not to be released at the same time as the others.

    The 15 cores will be part of Ivy Bridge-EX, which is due either Q4 of this year or Q1 '14. Reply

    Poignant means evoking a keen sense of sadness or regret. This sentence makes no sense:

    "...the business aspect of these processors along the Xeon brand is arguably the more poignant and certainly the more profitable aspect of the business."
