Intel to exceed eight cores with Nehalem-EX successor

Intel on Thursday said it would release a successor to its eight-core Nehalem-EX chips next year with more cores and faster speeds as it tries to push the limits of server performance.

Well, bully for Intel. I've lost track of AMD's Opterons, I hope they can give them a run for the moolah.

so how many cores? I would rather see some right clocked stock cpu's than more cores. Like why cant we get a 3.8 intel 32nm quad out of the box

I'm using several Xeon 5600 based servers at the moment. In Xen virtualization, we're making virtual servers with dedicated disks, ram and NICs but with shared CPU resources.

Currently I've got two machines running 72GB of RAM on a dual processor, quad core Xeon 5620 system.

On that I've got 40 Xen servers, each comparable to a the average person's desktop machine in power, and total cpu load never exceeds 20%.

Some of the socket compatible Xeons tended to be better than their non-xeon cousins. Not performance wise, because they were basically the same chip, but for example the Xeon 3060 (dual core 2.4Ghz) as compared to the E6600 (identical dual core 2.4Ghz) tended to overclock slightly better. They were both conroe cores, but one could guess that when speed binning processors, Intel left a larger margin on the Xeons than they did on consumer grade chips, owing to the fact that Xeons are expected to run 24/7 until end of life.

So perhaps a chip that could have been binned as a 2.67+Ghz or 2.8Ghz+ chip was binned as a 2.4Ghz because of the Xeon's increased reliability requirements.

Another reason (at least for some of the machines I've built for IT staff) is that for tax reasons, buying Xeons from a server equipment wholesaler makes it easier to write off your home theater PC as a tax deductible business expense.

If you remember back in the Athlon X2 days, the Opteron 170 and its kin were also chosen over their Athlon counterparts, partly because of multiplier flexibility, but also partly because similar base clocked chips tended to overclock higher when they were Opterons, likely due to the same added buffer from the manufacturer.

Depends, the commodity socket Xeons are off the same production line as the regular desktop chips.

The ones that get expensive are the 5xxx series which are two socket, and 7xxx quad socket or octo socket. Those are on different silicone and as a result cost more.

Yea, the guys here are a wealth of information when it comes to computers.

For some its hands on & research (like me) & others its a combo of that & formal schooling too.

I've learned a ton since joining this forum.
