Intel Launches 12 New SKUs, “V2 Series” Ivy Bridge-EP Processors – 10 Core Xeon E5-2470 v2 Included

Hardware 2 years ago by

Intel has launched the Version 2s of about 12 Ivy Bridge-EP Processors. The V2 variants include higher frequency, more L3 cache, TDP adjustment and even more Physical Cores. The high end model Xeon E5-2470 (V1) has had 2 more cores added, 5mb L3 cache added and received a 100 Mhz Clock uplift. And best of all, at no price change.

12 Intel Xeon Ivy Bridge-EP Lineup Upgraded with V2 Variants – Xeon E5-2470 v2 Leading the Bunch with 10 Cores/20 Threads.

Intel Ivy Bridge-EP Xeon 2400 v2These new processors are built on the same Ivy-Bridge-EP core and among the obvious upgrades the V2 models have been upgraded with a new Float 16 instruction set, APIC Visualization and Enhanced Idle Power Consumption. The V2 Variants have been launched specifically for the Romley Platform and have revived decently rounded upgrades to the entire lineup. They use the LGA1356 Socket.

Its also worth noting here that the 12 new SKUs have received architecture enhancements, making them true full fledged successors to the previous. This also means that even those whose apparent specs haven’t changed, are not rebrands.
