To get here, Intel had to do some great work under the hood, with 45MB of L3 cache helping it all out. Latency and power consumption become a big issue with a 36-core processor, but Intel has done it, all while AMD has no new CPU architecture until 2016. The new Intel Xeon E5 processor comes in 22 SKUs, ranging from a 3.5GHz quad-core model all the way up to the 18-core 2.3GHz chip.
