    Here's what an Intel Broadwell Xeon with a built-in FPGA looks like

    Broadwell-EP parts have been sold for over a month now. I even have access to some in my cloud. The interesting part will be if the HEDT series launches on march 31st.

    Will there be new x99 motherboards for Broadwell-E or will they pretty much stay the same? Thinking of ordering some parts soon.

    CPU World says LGA2011V3, but that box says LGA2011V4.

    I think you will see new boards with M.2 and U.2 options. Since this is the new black.

    5MB? Anyway, I don't think it's that good for gaming, skylake with L4 cache at 4.7GHz will soundly outperform it, L4 cache makes a big difference.

    Its a 10MB L3 part, not 5. 5MB would imply a dual core.

    I ordered them on 5th Mar., and delivered on 23th Mar.
    Here's another shot:
    https://twitter.com/ohashi3d/status/712710381102170112
    I prepared ASUS Z10PA-D8 for them, but failed to boot with BIOS 3003:(
    ASUS support says "CPU E5-2687W v4 is not comptible with your motherboard as per our support list." ...yeah, I know I know it.
    Now I'm waiting for BIOS updating...hope it will save my Z10PA-D8...

    I've received an e-mail about ASRock X99 board's latest BIOS.
    Soon, I've got X99Extreme4 and updated the BIOS to 3.30.
    Now E5-2687W v4 has successfully booted:)

    and CPU-Z, HWiNFO, CINEBENCH R15 etc.

    [​IMG]
    To my surprise, All cores turbo multiplier is x32:(
    Though CINEBENCH R15 score 2019cb is not so bad as 1 CPU system,
    but it looks that 'lower-clock and more-cores' v4 CPUs are more suitable
    for pure rendering system.
    # As I also use 3D-CAD(Creo(Pro/E)), I also want single thread performance...

    How much does it clock down under AVX loads?

    It shouldn't be surprising you were having problems since the real release date of Broadwell-EP probably isn't until the 31st. It's still not on Ark at this point.

    Lucky guy. :)
    Faster than soon to be launched Core i7-6950X. 12C/24T >3GHz is what I'm expecting from Skylake-E's EE model. Here's Haswell/Haswell-E in comparison:

    They haven't even taped out yet (tape out scheduled for Q2'16 according to Intel official statement), so don't expect to see them on-package with Xeon for quite some time.

    Hi, in cases of "OCCT4.4.1 AVX Capable Linpack" and "Prime95 v28.7",
    it's still x32, 3.2GHz, same in case of CINEBENCH R15.

    Its good to see there is no down clock anymore with Broadwell-EP on AVX. Haswell-EP did have different clocks for servers.

    But I am sure we are going to see a comeback with down clocking when AVX512 hits with Skylake-EP.
