    the l4 cache on was mostly for the igp and as such it probably wont be on 2011-3
    yes it did bring nice performance improvements to the cpu but only with slower ram as the l4 cache wasnt much faster than dual channel 2400c10
    so they would probably need to spend a fair bit extra on faster cache to make the difference noticeable with quad channel ddr4 3000
    256m of hbm2 could be nice if its latency can be low enough maybe they will do something like that in the future

    L4 Is not just about bandwidth. It is also about latency.
    L4 cache can also help lower power consumption allowing Intel to get more aggressive with say... Turbo.

    So even if it had the same amount of bandwidth as quad-channel DDR4, it would still be of some benefit...

    But I doubt that will happen anyway, makes more sense to just throw more L3 at the problem.

    "The schedule for Broadwell-E reveals that ES sampling of the processors will commence in Q4 2015 followed by QS sampling that will mark the transition to final software optimization in late December 2015 – Early January 2016. The mass production of these processors will start in February-March 2016 which indicates that we might see an announcement from Intel at CeBIT 2016 in March ’16. It is not known whether Intel will actually launch these processors at the same day but the source indicates that the chips are indeed heading for a Q1 2016 time frame as far as launch is concerned. The news seems to hold some credibility since Intel has already confirmed to launch their Broadwell-EP Xeon E5-2600 V4 processors in Q4 2015. These new processors will feature up to 22 cores, 44 threads and have compatibility on the existing Brickland platform that is based around the C610 series chipset.

    Before I buy a Skylake rig I will be seriously considering this, even if it just means 5960x might become more affordable.

    Or maybe a Broadwell-E rig to benchmark Pascal on ....

    What's the point of 6850k/6800k?

    the only info i can find about this is for the 10 core version, has anybody found any info about models with fewer cores?

    Ah yes, I see the cheapest/smallest is a 6 core. I can't find any mention of X79 supporting it though.

    Thanks. Why is that? Ivy bridge works 2011-3/x79 no?

    Sandybridge-E = X79 - socket 2011
    Ivy Bridge-E = X79 - socket 2011
    Haswell=E = X99 - socket 2011-3
    Broadwell = X99 - socket 2011-3

    But then ivy works on 99 though?

    At the moment i'm x79/ivy. i could conceivably get an x99 motherboard (at some point) and run the ivy in it for a while, then get a broadwell-e chip later on yes?

    What part of the above statement is not clear :confused:

    Ivy bridge-E is ONLY for X79 boards, not X99 boards.

    Haswell-E is ONLY for X99 boards, not X79 boards.

    You cannot install an Ivy Bridge-E CPU (4820K, 4930K, 4960X) into ANY X99 mainboard.

    Have a nice day :cool:

    Just to clarify again for the players @ home

    LGA2011 socket compatibility
    The following processors are compatible with the LGA2011 socket. They are backward and forward compatible if the board manufacturer provided a BIOS update with the processor microcode updates. Check with your board manufacturer to see if your board is compatible with the processor you intend to use.
    •2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-39xx Processor Extreme Edition
    •2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3930K and i7-3820K Processors
    •3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-4960X Processor Extreme Edition
    •3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-4930K and i7-4820K Processors


    Note These processors are not compatible with the LGA2011-v3 socket.


    LGA2011-v3 socket compatibility
    The following processors will work in the LGA2011-v3 socket.
    •4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-5960X Processor Extreme Edition
    •4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-5930K Processor
    •4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-5820K Processor


    Note These processors are not compatible with the LGA2011 socket.

    right so 2011-3 and 2011 stuff are completely incompatible with each other. Gotcha.

    Havnt looked. Physical dimensions it may fit but it definately wont work and may damage the cpu and board!
