The new devices work up to 36 threads and have a maximum of 45 MB of L3 cache, which makes them more apt to large servers than home users. The new line is processing clocks ranging from 2.1 GHz to 3.3 GHz (2.5 GHz to 3.3 GHz in order AVX), TDP 165W and 5.6 billion transistors – which results in prices that can reach US $ 7,175.
The new Xeon platform can handle 24 DIMMs per memory socket DDR3 or DDR 4, which, used at its maximum capacity, result in the use of upto 12 TB of RAM.
