Radeon E8950 

Released September, 2015
  • 735 MHz
  • 8 GB GDDR5

So we know that the new Haswell architecture would further leverage the performance over the existing Ivy Bridge architecture based Xeon family delivering more performance with improved efficiency which is the key role of effectiveness in the enterprise and workstation scape.

The LGA 2011 socket would be able to support both Ivy Bridge-E and Sandy Bridge-E processors while a strong DIGI+ VRM with the latest Dual Intelligent Processors 4 design would offer overclockers amazing overclock potential.

In The News From around the web

We expect to see official details of the R9 300-series of products of which there have been many leaks as well as the final details of the AMD Fury and Fury X products based on the new Fiji GPU.
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.
