"Intel has announced the latest revision to it's Enterprise CPU range. The Xeon E7 v2 is based on Ivy Bridge rather than the aging Westmere, and specifically targets the Big Data Analytics market. In pursuit of this they've bumped up the core count to 15, reduced power consumption, reworked the cache, and included a long list of smaller improvements. The end result is a high-reliability chip that uses less power but has dramatically improved performance for most workloads.

A single-page version of the article is available here."

    Maybe they'll make the 16th one available later as a promotion. Buy 15 Get 1 Free or 6.66% Extra Free (the deal of the Beast).

    overclocking and overbussing is very old.

    the new hotness is overcoring.

    hitting control-alt-shift-tab-backslash can turn on that extra cpu (if you have the right kernel patch).
