Brothers in Gaming and Tech
With Intel’s next generation high performance platform only a few weeks away, as reported by AnandTech, pricing has been known for a week or two now. However, as always with the highest performance platform, the majority of owners in this field are business, where stability matters and money is almost no object. Now we finally have details, courtesy of CPU-World, about the Ivy Bridge-E Xeon line-up and how much these 12-core processors are going to cost.

Unfortunately there is nothing listed regarding the fabled 15 core processors that were rumoured before launch. CPU-World reports that these prices are approximately 12-30% more than their Sandy Bridge-E counterparts.
With any luck, I should be getting a couple of these processors in to test. Fingers crossed!
