    Outgrowing the known lineup of 32 nm client processors (under the Core family), Intel's upcoming lineup of processors based on the 32 nm Westmere architecture will comprise of no less than 13 models under the Xeon E5000, L5000, X5000, and W3600 series. Among these, there are six hexa-core Xeon processors, including X5680 (3.33 GHz), X5670 (2.93 GHz), X5660 (2.80 GHz), and X5650 (2.66 GHz). X5680 has a TDP of 130W, with the latter three sub 3 GHz models having TDP as low as 95W. There is an energy-efficient L5640 hexa-core model clocked at 2.26 GHz, with TDP at 60W, and a single-socket W3680, clocked at 3.33 GHz with 130W TDP. All these models have six cores, and 12 MB of L3 cache.

    Next up, are Intel's first 32 nm quad-core processors: Xeon X5677 (3.46 GHz, 130W), X5647 (3.06 GHz, 95W), E5640 (2.66 GHz, 80W), X5630 (2.53 GHz, 80W), X5620 (2.40 GHz, 80W), and energy efficient L5630 (2.13 GHz, 40W), and L5609 (1.86 GHz, 40W). Except L5609, all these quad-core chips have HyperThreading Technology and Turbo Boost available. The L2 cache amounts for each of these chips is unknown as of now, but should be up to 8 MB, or as low as 4 MB for some models. Most of these chips are slated for release on March 16, 2010.

    Will we get more 6 core desktop CPUs?(Other than 980X) Is it on the roadmap?

    The market is rather limited for that I guess. I doubt Intel will bother too much with them. 60W hexa/40W quad core is nice though. Shame I can't be bothered to waste cash on a pair of LV's.

    Are the 32nm quads actually hexa cores with two cores disabled? I don't remember any 32nm quads being announced...

    I doubt it. The quads are 45nm and the 6 core are 32nm. Would be hard to do:)

    bta said it's intel's first 32nm quads. Strange why there are no quads for the desktop people then. Maybe they just want to clear 45nm stocks or can't manage demands?

    Does anybody think the X5650 will clock as high as 750/920? If so this will be my next chip.
