When Intel launched the 2011 socket processors Sandy Bridge-E, he did cutting characteristics of processors Xeon Sandy Bridge-EP. The first generation of processors for the LGA 2011 had 8 cores in the die but they had only active 6. But for the new Ivy Bridge-E Intel will launch processors without cores disabled (on models of 6-core).
Previously some information saying that Ivy Bridge-E would come with up to 6 cores blocked, but from VR-Zone report that this is not true. Generation processors Ivy Bridge-E will be initially composed of three models, two six-core and one with four cores. Its specifications are very similar to the current Sandy Bridge-E, one of the details that differentiates Sandy Bridge-E with his successor, will be quad-core model that will arrive with unlocked multiplier.
The i7 processor 4960 X will feature all the enabled features of the die, his younger brother 4930K will see diminished his memory cache L3 and 4820K will come with two cores disabled and least amount of L3 cache. The latest generations of Haswell and Ivy Bridge processors have had a feature that not liked very much to the users, and that feature is the use of thermal paste between the die and the IHS.
Ivy Bridge-E will come with the soldier IHS processor by which these new processors overclocking margin is probably greater than the processors i5 and i7 socket LGA 1155 and 1150. Intel has announced that it has improved its manufacturing to 22 nm process, solving some problems slightly affecting performance of processors.
