Intel Sandy Bridge finally goes dual socket with new Xeon E5-2600 range

Intel has launched its Xeon E5-2600 range: dual socket processors sporting up to eight cores and 16 threads each, based on its Sandy Bridge core design.

Sandy Bridge processors with up to four cores and eight threads have been shipping for desktop and portable systems for more than a year now, but it's taken Intel a while to scale up and validate its new "Sandy Bridge EP" design for the dual socket market. A further delay was caused by Intel's decision to secretly ship the first processors to HPC customers building supercomputers.

The new processors are closely related to the Sandy Bridge E processors that hit the market last November. They extend the standard single socket Sandy Bridge design with more cores (up to 8), more cache (up to 20 MB), more PCIe connectivity (40 lanes of PCIe 3.0), more memory bandwidth (four DDR3 channels, running at up to 1600 MHz) and more memory capacity (up to 3 DIMMs per channel, for a total of 384 GB per processor). The Sandy Bridge EP (and E) parts lack the integrated graphics of the regular Sandy Bridge, but are bigger and better in every other way.

Sandy Bridge E3 Xeon vs i7 Core comparison
