Intel Announces Ivytown Servers For The EnterpriseFor months, there have been rumors circulating of a new Intel 15-core CPU, with a particular focus on Big Data analytics, multi-socket systems, and the enterprise market. Well, this past January, we took a trip to Intel's SAP research lab to see the new processors and the rather substantial update coming down the pipe.

Very Impressive on performance by 15 core IBE EX server CPU. I know it is designed for high performance server. I cant wait for frist new 8 core based on Hawsell-E Extreme Edition upcoming review. It will be very interesting to read and want to know about that.
