    Default Intel to Release Romley platform, 8-core Sandy Bridge-EP at CeBIT 2012 !



    On this years’ CES 2012 conference in Las Vegas, we spoke with several vendors of commercial products and the main product for them in first quarter will (finally) be the long awaited arrival of SNB-EP and Romley.

    The new workstation/server platform will bring the aging X58 based Tylersberg chipset platform to its end and be succeded by X79 based Romley.


    The X79 Romley is getting a nice feature and performance update in the terms of features the company had to disable for the launch of X79 and Core i7-3000 series processors. For starters, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) makes a debut. That is one move that will make a lot of specialized controller vendors shiver, since they base their business upon selling the PCIe-based SAS RAID cards.





    If we add to boot that Intel will support TRIM inside RAID0 array with the new RST, the need for SAS controllers might become thing of the past. Then again, we’ll see if Intel learned their lesson on scaling, since it was quite easy to saturate the available bandwidth with four SSDs on the Intel chipsets of the past.


    Not to mention the enabled two more processing cores and the missing 5MB of L3 cache from the Core i7-3800 processors, meaning we’re heading into wonderful world of octal-core processors and CPU dies with 20MB of cache and more.


    We have wrote more about Romley in excellent coverage by our own Nebojsa Novakovic here and here.


    The platform is expected to finally launch with the first day of CeBIT, on March 6, 2012. You can expect a tidal wave of news from that show, only two months from now.

    ​Launch dates of Intel processors in Q1



    VR-Zone and Fudzilla recently revealed launch dates of several desktop Intel processors, as well as introduction date of "Romley" platform and Sandy Bridge-EP server chips.

    Core i5-2550K, i5-2450P and i5-2380P socket 1155 parts will be launched on February 8. A novel "feature" on these CPUs is the lack of integrated graphics. Intel i5-2550K, clocked at 3.4 GHz, and up to 3.8 GHz when Turbo Boost is active, is a bit faster than currently available Core i5-2500K, and also has unlocked clock multiplier. Core i5-2450P operates at 3.1 GHz, and has 3.4 GHz maximum turbo frequency. Core i5-2380P is 100 MHz slower than the 2450P. All microprocessors have 4 Hyper-threaded cores, 6 MB L3 cache, and they support all SB technologies with the exception of Vpro. Prices of these models are not known.

    On February 13, Intel will release third desktop CPU for socket 2011. Core i7-3820 is a 3.6 GHz chip with 4 CPUs cores, 10 MB of last level cache, Hyper-Threading, and Turbo boost up to 3.9 GHz. The processor has pretty high for Sandy Bridge CPUs 130 Watt TDP. Core i7-3820 was supposed to launch in the fourth quarter of last year, but was delayed by a quarter. Official 1K tray price for this SKU will be $285.

    Romley platform will be introduced on March 6, on the first day of CeBIT show. We suspect that the launch will include large number of "Sandy Bridge-EP" Xeon microprocessors from E5-2600, and perhaps from E5-1600 families. We reported on specifications of these Xeons last fall. Prices will range from $294 to $1080 for E5-1600 series chips, and from $202 to $2057 for E5-2600 CPUs.

    This oughta be good! An eight core Sandy Bridge will surely knock the daylight out of anything AMD has to offer, unless AMD comes up with 16 cores!

    Amd'll fall short by a whooping 30% then, 10 cores aren't enough.
