Intel has its exciting Core i7-7700K on the way early next year, arriving with the Kaby Lake architecture, but for the super-enthusiasts and workstation crowd, the upcoming Skylake-based Xeon family is where the fun really begins.

Intel's upcoming Skylake-EP Xeon E5 processor lineup is now being teased, with higher-end SKUs ready to blow not only your minds, but your wallets. The massive Skylake-EP Xeon E5-2699 V5 processor has 32 physical CPU cores, and a total of 64 threads. The previous-gen Xeon E5-2699 V4 processor had 22 physical CPU cores, and 44 threads.

 

We should expect the Skylake-EP processors to launch at around Computex 2017 (late May, early June next year). Intel will include their new Advanced Vector Instructions-512 that will increase floating point calculations and encryption algorithms, but the company has also integrated Omni-Parth Architecture that will see high-speed network and interconnects enjoy much higher speeds.

 

Intel's new LGA 3647 socket is massive, something that we revealed as a world exclusive during Computex 2016 earlier this year. The socket can support up to 12 x DDR4 DIMMs, with next-gen 6-channel memory as well as Intel's Optane DIMMs for the very best in bandwidth.
