Intel Launches Xeon E7-8800 and E7-4800 v3 Processor Families

Intel officially took the wraps off of its latest processors today, for mission-critical enterprise server and pro workstation applications, dubbed the Xeon E7-8800 / 4800 v3. Like its high-end desktop processors, the Xeon E7-8800 / 4800 v3 product families are based on the Haswell-EX CPU core. These new Xeons, however, offer a plethora of other enhancements and are packing significantly more cores than any current desktop processor. The highest-end Xeon E7-8800 series processors, for example, are packing up to 18 cores.
