Intel’s Leaked Roadmap Shows Ivy Bridge-EP/EN Processors with 12 Cores, 30MB Cache and 130W TDP


Intel's roadmap detailing the upcoming Ivy Bridge-EP/EN Processors has been leaked which shows that the new Xeon CPUs would be equipped with 12 Cores.

A day earlier we reported the Brickland and Grantley platforms which span three generation of CPU's - Ivy Bridge, Haswell and Broadwell. The leaked slides detail the Xeon E5 series CPU's which would be based on the Ivy Bridge 22nm manufacturing node featuring 12 Cores and 24 threads replacing the Sandy Bridge-EP platform. The new processors would remain compatible with the LGA2011 socket and C600 series PCH.

Compared to the Sandy Bridge-EP, the new processors would be equipped with 30MB of Cache, would support DDR3 memory with speeds of 1866Mhz and the top end 4S CPUs would feature TDP of 115-130W. The 10 core models would feature TDP of 70W.

The new Xeon E5 and Xeon E7 processors would be available by 2013 marking the launch of the Brickland and Grantley platforms. For more details on Intel's Brickland and Grantley platforms, please browse here.
