TC Mag noticed Intel has expanded its Xeon lineup with a whopping 29 new 32nm parts, including ten parts with 10-cores and 20 threads.
Detailed below, Intel's 10-core Xeon chips go from 2.0 GHz to 2.4 GHz in terms of frequency, have 24MB or 30MB of L3 cache, a 105W or 130W TDP, and come in an FC-LGA8 (LGA 771) package. As you'd expect, more cores mean more money (BEd: and mo' problems?) so the cheapest of the 10-core lot is $2,558, while the top of the tops costs $4,616.
