The Ivy Bridge E processor has been speculated for release later this year in Q3 and will be replacing the currently Sandy Bridge-E lineup. A CPU-Z validation of an Intel Xeon processor with the code name Ivy Bridge-EP/EX said to be originating from China was spotted recently.
There’s no information other then the CPU-Z Validation, but it does give some idea of what kind of Ivy Bridge-E Xeon processor we could get to see. There is a model version mentioned on the CPU-Z Validation screenshot, but the processor with a stock clock of 1.6GHz, was seen to be overclocked to 2GHz. The processor features 8 Cores and 20MB L3 cache.
