Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2

Intel E5-2697 v2

The Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 is a high-end processor for workstations and server (maximal two sockets). It is based on the Ivy Bridge architecture and offers 12 cores that are clocked with 2,7 to 3,5 GHz (turbo Boost). Instead of an integrated graphics card, the E5-2697 offers a huge 30 MB level 3 cache. The 4-channel memory interface is able to cope with up to 768 GB DDR3-1866. The CPU is specified with a TDP of 130 Watt and therefore needs a big desktop grade cooling system.
