10 Core Intel Ivy Bridge-EP/EX Leaked, Benchmarked


Just noticed some screens of a new processor called the Intel Ivy Bridge-EP/EX which was posted a couple days ago over at TechPowerUp and I must say, it’s a beauty.

In case you didn’t get the message from the title, this new processor has 10 CORES! Yes, 10 of them. In addition, it’s also hyper threaded, which means it’ll have 20 threads. Additionally, it’s a 2.8GHz processor (which isn’t too impressive) with 256 KB L2 cache per core and 30MB of shared L3 cache. Yes, 30 megabytes. A whole 15 megabytes more than the current flagship i7-3960X Extreme Edition. Interested? Take a look at the screens below.

Windows 8… interesting…

No word on pricing or availability, but considering it’s a 10 core Xeon, I’d expect this to cost more than a car.
