The latest rumor for Intel is that the chipmaker will launch its new Broadwell-EP processors later this year, with a new Xeon E5-2602 V4 and a huge clock speed of 5.1GHz.
The Intel Xeon E5-2602 V4 processor will not only sport a clock speed of 5.1GHz, but 10MB of L3 cache, with each core featuring 2.5MB of shared cache, with a TDP of 165W. This would make the Xeon E5-2602 V4 processor have the fastest default frequency of any processor on the market, surpassing the AMD FX-9590 processor and its huge 5GHz frequency.
The problem is, Intel's super-quick Xeon E5-2602 V4 processor will only be made through specific OEMs, and will not be pushed out into the world for public consumption.
