Intel Unveils 10-Core Xeons, Mission-Critical ServersIntel announced its new E-series of Xeon processors today, claiming that the new processors will deliver nearly unparalleled advances in CPU performance and power efficiency. It's been just over a year since Santa Clara released its Nehalem-based octal-core Beckton processors. Whereas Beckton was focused entirely on performance and architectural efficiency, these new Xeons are more balanced. The new chips boost the core count to ten (up to 20 threads with HT enabled) and will be offered at a wide range of TDPs...

Imaged if Intel build a Extreme Edition based on Xeon. It will be super powerful game PC out there. I would like to see the 10 care Intel CPU start at 4 GHz with unlocked same on Extreme Edition processor. One day it might be happen if Intel build one for Extreme Edition. We will never know...

If they do mike, HH has to give me one! :D

But dam, i need myself one of these servers with them...

Looks like some awesome specs would love to see what kinda madness this could be in a box, maybe if I win the lottery right, XEON processors are expensive, and I could not put one of these 10 core beaut's in a box with anything but the best. SO I will let you know when that happens.

I think the real idea behind this is that most server applications are going the way of virtualization technology. With 10 cores running potentially 20 threads with HT enabled you can run more servers on one box. :)

Yes Omega thats probably part of it, but the cloud does not only run one way there are multiple ways. You can be on the general cloud, a private leased cloud, a private cloud on leased servers, or a truly private cloud run by a single company. There are more combinations to this CPU seems viable for them all.

Pretty cool, it'll take 20 years or so for them to incorporate this into the military :p lol

Impressive, Multi core applications would really excel with a pair of theses on one mobo

Check out http://www.evga.com/articles/00611/ these babies paired with servers based on this technology would create a very nice computing environment and are the future.

So, using one of these to watch youtube movies on it would pretty much be over kill huh? ;P I bet there is someone out there who is going to do just that!

From what I am hearing this may not actually be all that attractive a processor for Intel as the newer chip model of this (this specific XEON is made of Nehalem chips from what I understand), and there will be an implementation of this with newer chips pretty quick with a -.3 watts per core power usage percentage. That is 1/3rd of the power for 1 chip which is also a major reason (energy efficiency) for a chip like this on a server.

I personally am watching whats happening with Graphene as a processor material. I would imagine if Intel is not already on this they will be very shortly, IBM is already on there second operating round of them. They self cool and are very energy efficient so a processor pulling very high Ghz would be conceivably a moot point in many aspects, I think they are pulling 150 on a core, so a 600Ghz operational processor I imagine if in a quad core build. Not to mention it needs no cooling, is 200 faster than most OC'd i7 processors, and with that self cooling and energy efficiency a 10 core would be a cake walk so maybe double that. IBM is into this major and there main lineup is server hardware as well so it would make obvious sense from that side to for Intel to be all over it.

Jeez! 10 Cores? That's a little over-the-top if you ask me. But I guess if its a business server or something like that that needs that kind of performance I can see why It'd be OK

I just read the title and some of the posts ( had to leave  :P ) so please don't hate XD
