    Imagine if your micro-ATX box that looks like you borrowed it from your mom and pop could crush every other machine twice or thrice its size, at the LAN party. That's possible when you run an Intel Xeon E5-2670 processor paired with ASUS Rampage IV Gene motherboard, as VR-Zone found out. Based on the Sandy Bridge-EP silicon the Xeon E5-2670 packs 8 cores, 16 threads enabled with HyperThreading, 8 x 256 KB L2 cache, and 20 MB shared L3 cache, and a quad-channel DDR3 IMC supporting up to 128 GB of RAM. ASUS managed to slip the right microcode into the BIOS running Rampage IV Gene, letting it run the chip. The Xeon E5-2670 will be clocked at 2.6 GHz, with a TDP of 115W. "Real men use real cores," go tell that to AMD.

    Intel Y U TEASE ME with 8c/16t and don't actually release an 8 core unlocked 3970-80-90X? :(

    Hmmm, I wonder if there will be any 6/8 cores with HT chips on 1155 ivy bridge?

    I think they'll be keeping 6+ cores CPUs for LGA2011. Until they keep the low end LGA 2011 Quad Core we won't see a 6 core CPU on LGA 1155.
    Maybe when LGA 2011 will have 6 cores on the first two SKUs and 8 cores on the extreme chip then the scenario will be more plausible.
    There's no reason, for now, to offer 6 cores on the mainstream platform, it would kill the already hard to justify LGA2011, it has had more sense back when the enthustiast platform launched before the mainstream.

    If it's going to be a Xeon then we can kiss K-series goodbye. No unlocked multipliers for the skus that target servers. :(

    I have two Xeon processors. They run perfect on a ASrock X79 Extreme9.

    1)Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge ES 8/16 Core 20MB 2.3 Ghz (Turbo 2.5 Ghz) B0-Stepping
    2)Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge ES 8/16 Core 20MB 3.1 Ghz (Turbo 3.4 Ghz) C0-Stepping

    Both are not overclockable. C0-Stepping Benches come on the weekend.

    Are you able to modify the BCLK multiplier? I know that Xeons are locked to max 25 multi but I hoped that BCLK could have been adjustable.

    I see, probably then it's not unlinked like SB-E one :(

    Still the 8c/16t @ 3,4 looks rather tasty :O

    The 8/16T with 3,4Ghz in C0 Stepping (QB7R) is the new one. Here a list with the old B0.

    C0 Revision

    Hello
    thank you for that very useful summary of B0 steppings, it helped me a lot. Can you please make similar sum of the C0 (or newer) steppings? Now I have the oppurtinity to get a QB7U ES CPU but besides that it is a 2,40GHz i dont know nothing about it and was unable to find anything even on google. QB7 would probably mean a C0, like yours QB7R, but i dont even know how many cores it has. :confused:

    The QB7U should be a "C1" Stepping (QS) ? E5-2665 2.4GHz Idle and 2.8GHz Turbo?

    Tested E5-2687w
