Talking Xeon 56xx series quad/hexa core base Westmere 32nm pricing

Looks like Intel Xeon 56xx series quad and hexa core westmere-c 32nm based processors have started to be listed. Intel Xeon 5600 series prices are much more expensive than desktop side! Only budget choice for 32nm quad core would be Intel Xeon E5630 and E5620 running at 2.533ghz and 2.40ghz respectively - 19x and 18x cpu multipliers.

If folks think Intel 980X and Xeon 3680 6 core based 32nm processors are too much and want 32nm quad core based processor, you wont see them until Q4, 2010 on desktop side (according to Anandtech that will be with 32nm quad core Sandy Bridge http://www.anandtech.com/show/2722/5 which will need a new motherboard as it's socket 1155 on Intel's new 6-Series platform codenamed Cougar Point) .

Wow that's a lot of dollars for the 5680.

Makes 980X look like the budget choice heh.

Indeed might as well get an Intel Core i7 980X heh. Wonder if Xeon 3670 and lower models will eventually come out like Xeon W3580, W3570 etc.

Looks like 32nm quad core sandy bridge samples are already shipping though http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/dis...tion_Ramp.html but new socket form factor LGA1155

Intel: Our 32nm Production Ramp – Fastest Ramping Process Ever
[04/13/2010 11:57 PM]
by Anton Shilov

Intel Corp. said on Tuesday that it had begun sampling of its code-named Sandy Bridge processors with customers in Q1 2010, about a year ahead of the actual commercial product launch. In addition, the company indicated that its 32nm fabrication process technology is the fastest manufacturing process ever.
Thousands of Sandy Bridge Processors Shipping Now

“We began volume sampling [of Sandy Bridge processors] in Q1, shipping thousands of samples to a broad range of customers and we are planning [to begin] volume production later this year,” said Paul Otellini, chief executive officer and president of Intel.

The first Intel Sandy Bridge chips will feature two or four cores with Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading technology as well as integrated graphics processor that will actually be on the same die as the x86 cores, according to previous reports. The chips will address mainstream market segments currently served by Intel Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3 processors, hence, there will be a lot of different models with 65W (dual-core, quad-core) or 95W (quad-core) thermal design power, according to documents seen by X-bit labs. The new processors will use LGA1155 form-factor and will be compatible with platforms based on the Intel 6-series chipsets code-named Cougar Point. It is noteworthy that while the new 6-series mainstream chipsets support Serial ATA-600 and some other innovations, the USB 3.0 does not seem to be a capability of the core-logic.

The key feature of Sandy Bridge Intel AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) which, when used by software programmers, will increase performance in floating point, media, and processor intensive software, according to the Intel. Key features of Intel AVX include wider vectors, increasing from 128 bit to 256 bit wide, resulting in up to 2x peak FLOPs output; enhanced data rearrangement, resulting in allowing data to be pulled more efficiently, and three operand, non-destructive syntax for a range of benefits. Intel AVX can also increase energy efficiency beyond the increases brought by the micro-architectural innovations, and is backwards compatible to existing Intel processors.

Some reports claim that six-core and eight-core Sandy Bridge-based designs will become available in Q2 2011 or later, hence, Intel is taking the same strategy as with Westmere micro-architecture and plans to initiate production of less complex processors first with higher-end models following later. The SNB processors will be made using proven 32nm fabrication process, which means that production ramp of the chips may be extremely quick.

Any idea how the e5620 and e5630 compare to the 920/930/w3520/30? Cant seem to find much on google, I guess it's a bit early.

From reviews 980X vs 975 is ~25-55% faster clock for clock, which seems normal as there's 50% more cores 6 vs 4. Xeon E5640 is 2.66ghz equivalent for the Core i7 920 2.66ghz so maybe 5-20% faster seeing as they're both quad core could be close. But 32nm has some improved instruction sets i.e. AES/encryption which is leaps and bounds faster than 45nm older cpus.

New AES-NI instructions in 32nm





But guess it will run cooler and clock slightly higher on 32nm process.

The E5640 is just way too expensive at the moment. The 5620 is tempting but it will obviously require a high bclk for high clocks which is kind of a downer.Would love to try out some 32nm goodness though. Hmm...

Is the W3680 a locked multiplier ?

retail B1 and ES B1 step 2 W3680 are cpu unlocked like Intel Core i7 980X. See Frenchlick's W3680 B1 ES
