Intel to launch Xeon E5-2600 series in Q4 2011

In July we disclosed details of Xeon E5-1600 family of server-class microprocessors, designed for one-way servers and high-performance workstations. Processors from this family are part of Romley-WS platform, which is coming in the next quarter. The CPUs are based on 32nm Sandy Bridge-EP core, and they utilize socket R (socket 2011). Also in the 4th quarter, Intel will launch Romley-EP dual-socket platform, consisting of 17 different E5-2600 models and C600-series chipset. The E5-2600 line-up will include microprocessors with 2, 4, 6 and 8 cores, operating at frequencies up to 3.3 GHz, and featuring up to 20 MB of level 3 cache. Like E5-1600 series, all Intel E5-2600 parts will use socket R.

Xeon E5-2600 series is going to have 8 models, all featuring 8 cores and 20 MB of L3 cache. The processors are Xeon E5-2650, E5-2650L, E5-2660, E5-2665, E5-2670, E5-2680, E5-2687W and E5-2690. The fastest octa-core Xeon E5-2687W is clocked at 3.1 GHz, although it is intended only for workstations due to very high 150 W Thermal Design Power. Low-power 2650L 70W microprocessor operates at 1.8 GHz, and the rest of 8-cores have frequencies in the range from 2 GHz to 2.9 GHz.

Five six-core chips are Xeon E5-2620, E5-2630, E5-2630L, E5-2640 and E5-2667. These SKUs run at frequencies ranging from 2 GHz to 2.9 GHz, and all of them have 15 MB L3 cache. The highest clocked E5-2667 has 130 Watt TDP, whereas remaining microprocessors have lower 95 Watt and 60 Watt TDP.

Intel Xeon E5-2643 has the highest 3.3 GHz core frequency from the whole line-up. The chip comes with 4 CPU cores, and 10 MB of last level cache.

Two entry-level Xeons, E5-2603 and E5-2609, have 4 CPU cores, and 10 MB L3 cache. These are the only processors from E5-2600 series, that do not support Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost technologies. The 2603 and 2609 chips are clocked at 1.8 GHz and 2.4 GHz, and they both fit 80 Watt thermal envelope. Maximum supported DDR3 memory data rate on these server chips is 1066 MHz.

Xeon E5-2637 is a dual-core CPU with 3 GHz clock speed, 5 MB L3 cache, and 80 Watt TDP.
