After a long wait, sent by the web benchmarks of the new Intel Broadwell-EP, the first company to integrate up to 20 cores and as many as 40 threads thanks to Hyper-Threading. The CPUs in question are market expectations for Q1 2016, before the end servers with Xeon and later models with Core i7 solutions, compatible with the X99 desktop platform.
The benchmarks leaked concerning the Xeon E5-2698 V4 chip Core 20 and 40 threads, well-equipped with 55 MB of cache and support for DDR4 memories.
Very good performance considering the rather low frequency, only 2.1 GHz. We therefore expect great things from the more powerful and above all by the next Extreme Edition Core i7 series; looking at the score relative to Cinebench, which matters a lot the number of Core Physical / Logical, the Xeon E5-2698 V4 is scoring almost 5000 points, 800 more than its predecessor at 36 Core.
