    Just checking out the coverage for new Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 Haswell-EP processors and looks like awesome cpus for next generation of dedicated servers :D

    Patrick Kennedy (from STH - site and forums also runs Centmin Mod AFAIK :) ) has a nice reviews at
    The E5-2643v3 and E5-2667v3 look like interesting parts for 6 core @3.4Ghz and 8 core @3.2Ghz dual cpus so you could have Dual Intel Xeon E5-2643v3 with a total of 12 cpu cores + 12 cpu threads @3.4Ghz or Dual Intel Xeon E5-2667v3 with a total of 16 cpu cores + 16 cpu threads @3.2Ghz :cool: That's like 3x or 4x Xeon E3-1270v3 servers ! or 2x Xeon E5-1650v3 servers

    And check out the Intel Xeon E5-2699v3 with 18 cpu cores. A Dual Intel Xeon E5-2699v3 would have 36 cpu cores + 36 cpu threads = 72 cpu threads total @2.3Ghz !

    From Anandtech article
    New AVX/Turbo boost mode
    Wonder who among the cloud hosting providers will also be first to utilise theses ? Linode ? DigitalOcean ? Vultr ?

    I know Webnx (one of my shortlist choice providers I have kept an eye on) has already started offering Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 cpus for Xeon E5-2603v3, Xeon E5-2620v3 and Xeon E5-2630v3 dedicated server configurations WebNX: Dual e5v3 launch 2x6 Core$189 32HT Core monster with 32GB DDR4 only $299 WOW! - Dedicated Hosting Offers - Web Hosting Talk

    Full Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 Haswell-EP family Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 v3 Family

    Compare of the ones I'd be interested in ARK | Compare Intel® Products

    intel_compare_00.png

    Or this compare ARK | Compare Intel® Products

    Looking at costs, most likely Xeon E5-2620v3 and Xeon E5-2630v3 would be likely candidates

    Oh and full table from Anandtech - my hopes for E5-2637v3 and E5-2643v3 and E5-2667v3 are shot to pieces given their prices :LOL: But those are equivalent to 2x to 4x Xeon E3-1231v3 cpus so priced comparatively.

    The most major things to note in this release is:

    -Low end procs are now 6 cores instead of 4 cores.
    -There is a 5% performance increase versus the same clock speeds.
    -The E5 1600 V3 is now available in an 8 core flavor!

    All of the other processors are priced similar to the previous generation, so really the low end bump is where the biggest improvement is seen! FYI-We have these available.

    @RSNET-Radic yes definitely a nice lower end bump. And saw your posted offerings for these on WHT - nicely priced :)

    Would be interesting to see the OpenSSL benchmark performance of E5-2600v1 vs E5-2600v2 vs E5-2600v3 one day using my centminmodbench.sh script bench.centminmod.com :)

    We can definitely arrange for a benchmark on the new platform once we have a few extras available.

    Interesting read AES-GCM Encryption Performance on Intel® Xeon® E5 v3 Processors | Intel® Developer Zone :D

    @BamaStangGuy must loving his dual Xeon E5-2630v3 Reliablesite.net CentminMod Benchmark | Centmin Mod Community :) Any sites using SSL or all switched back to non-https ?
