An excerpt from an Intel Corp.’s document reveals that the world’s largest chipmaker intends to unleash its long awaited update to the Core i7 Extreme family of chips in early September. The new code-named Ivy Bridge-E microprocessors will be launched on the first, or the second week of September, presumably ahead of the Intel Developer Forum which starts on September 10, 2013.

While precise launch date of Intel Core i7-4900/4800-series “Ivy Bridge-E” microprocessors is unknown, the excerpt from the document published by Chinese version of VR-Zone web-site points to a launch window between the 4th and 11th September, 2013. Neither performance numbers nor the product specifications should be revealed in public documents ahead of actual product announcement, but partners of Intel may start advertising systems based on the new chips without disclosing details.

Intel plans to release three “Ivy Bridge-E” central processing units this year: Core i7-4960X, Core i7-4930K and Core i7-4820K, according to previously released information. Two of the new microprocessors will feature six cores and one will sport four cores. The new products will feature a little higher clock-speed compared to existing Core i7 “Sandy Bridge-E” microprocessors and will continue to feature 130W thermal design power. The new processors should be drop-in compatible with LGA2011 infrastructure.

Keeping in mind the fact that Ivy Bridge micro-architecture is not considerably faster than the Sandy Bridge, the Intel Core i7-4800/4900 processors will not be able to provide substantially higher performance than the existing Intel Core i7-3800/3900 chips. Still, those, who want to get even a slight performance boost can install the new chips into existing LGA2011 mainboards.

According to unofficial information, the new Ivy Bridge-E/EP design, which is set to emerge in the second half of 2013 and to power various microprocessor products, will have physical twelve cores and 30MB level-three cache, up significantly from eight cores and 20MB L3 cache inside Sandy Bridge-E/EP. The Ivy Bridge-E variation of the chip will be the base for high-end enthusiast-class Core Extreme processors as well as workstation-class Xeon chips, whereas the Ivy Bridge-EP will be used for Xeon chips for dual-socket severs.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.

except for the 3820/4820k which is 4 cores

i7s on 2011 for Ivy Bridge-E being released in September 2013 are 6 cores. The 12 core versions will be released later, apparently.

intel is slowly winding down the performance side of things we went for a 15 to 20% improvement from the 1st gen core I series to the 2nd gen core I series to a 10 to 15% improvement from the 2nd gen core I series to the 3rd gen core I series to a 5 to 10% improvement from the 3rd gen core I series to the 4th gen core I series.

Because they only care about all the mobile shit.
Next year we are not even getting new CPUs, there will only be a Haswell refresh. Pathetic.

Greetings folks...

According to unofficial information, the new Ivy Bridge-E/EP design, which is set to emerge in the second half of 2013 and to power various microprocessor products, will have physical twelve cores and 30MB level-three cache, up significantly from eight cores and 20MB L3 cache inside Sandy Bridge-E/EP.


Really!?! This is what you define as rumor. "...will have physical twelve cores and 30MB level three cache..."

These 'kids' don't realize the existing architecture and hyper-threading. Further, thus far and for the next generation, no High End Desk Top (HEDT) will sport 30 MB of level 3 cache.

I can just picture some 'kid' in his upstairs bedroom with his folks downstairs unaware of the nonsense rumors being propagated over the Web from "unofficial information."
