In The News From around the web

It seems that AMD and PC Gamer magazine have teamed up to announce a special (what else) PC gaming event at this year’s E3 show on June 16, and this would be the perfect place for some new hardware announcements.
Note: This part of the day 2 schedule has now been changed to read “AMD’s Next Generation GPU and Memory Architecture”, with all mention of Fiji and HBM removed.
The Xeon E5-2600 V3 lineup is going to be aimed at the HPC server and workstation market featuring 23 E5-2600 V3 SKUs including the flagship Xeon E5-2699 V3 which boasts 18 Cores, 36 threads, 45 MB of L3 cache and a high price of $4115 US.
Another technology update over at the workstation front is the introduction of C612 series chipset and DDR4 memory.
Next up, we have the FX-8320E which is an optimized FX-8320 with a core clock of 3.20 GHz, turbo clock of 4.00 GHz, an 8 MB L3 Cache and a 95W TDP.
The FX-8370E on the other hand has the same specifications aside from the 3.3 GHz core and 4.3 GHz clock speeds maintaining a TDP of 95W.
Do note that these CPUs was running them on a 2S platform so we are looking at 36 cores and 72 threads in total for the multi-core benchmark.
Being the high-end chips of the Xeon E5 V3 line, the Xeon E5-2699 V3 was clocked in at 2.30 GHz at stock and features a boost clock of just 2.8 GHz.
