    With key enterprise architectures such as Sandy Bridge-EP awaiting launch, Intel has as many as 40 Xeon processor models to release in the first half of 2012, which it will likely launch in two rounds of 20 models, for each of the first two quarters of this year. In Q1, Intel will release six-core Xeon E5-1660 and E5-1650, and a yet to be named quad-core model; the three will be priced at US US$1,080, US$583 and US$294, respectively. In the same quarter, Intel will also launch 7 eight-core Xeon processor models, including the Xeon E5-2690four six-core processors including E5-2640, three quad-core processors including E5-2609 and dual-core processor E5-2637. Intel will also launch some low-power (energy-efficient) Xeon models, including Xeon E5-2450L and six-core E5-2430L priced at US$1,106 and US$662.

    In the second quarter of 2012, Intel will launch the other 20 models. These include Xeon processors based on the Ivy Bridge silicon, and in the socket H2 (LGA1155) package. The Xeon E3-1290v2 is an example of such a chip. These high-grade Ivy Bridge chips will be priced in the range of US$189-884. Then on, 7 more E5 series models will be launched, including Xeon E5-2470, priced between US$192-1,440. Towards the end of the quarter, Intel will launch low-power eight-core and six-core Xeon processor models, including Xeon E5-2650L and E5-2630L, priced at priced at US$1,106 and US$662, respectively.

    = expensive toy.

    What is it that you're doing that warrants such an expenditure ? Playing games ?

    Did I read that right, Xeon processors on socket 1155? Would they work on a P67 board and what would be the difference between them and a 3770K for example?

    Sure, it's just a matter of BIOS update.

    No unlocked multiplier.

    That just barely enough power for me to ...play solitaire, surf the web and answer emails..

    ;) youd be suprised as to who some of really are and what else we use these uber powered machines for. But yes we game too. My wife uses my posted rig for her need.....and that a good fit for her.

    The 2011 chips should overclock very well with bclk at 125 and multi to 25x, what I think it will be an issue is the TDP, the 8 core 3,3 GHz is already in the 150W TDP ballpark.
    Unless Intel blocked bclk adjustment we should see some scary numbers from a dual socket LGA 2011 platform.

    Well, indulge me - what is it that a workstation machine cannot do but a gaming wallet warrior machine can ?

    I would like to get a eight-core Xeon processor put 2 on a dual socket mobo and get a 48U rack mount server and fill it up! Using it for WCG!

    Oh, look, 40 CPUs slightly varying in features and clock speed to confuse people (and extract more money) :|

    That's for SKUs, many of the chips will go into preassembled racks so they cover different price points, atleast that should be like this.

    It's not about choices. They'll strip a feature off a chip and someone will buy it. Down the line they may need it, then have to buy a new CPU. It's a game.

    I know of another company that leaves all features intact... lol
