Intel has announced a new version of its processor called the Xeon E5-2600 v3, which will be available in February, priced at $399.
That’s a very reasonable price tag for a quad-core processor, which is a huge improvement over its predecessor, the Xeon Phi, which retailed at $449.
The new chip is equipped with 4 cores, four threads, and can operate in the low-to-mid-200s.
The Xeon E7-2630 v3 is the fastest of the four chips and will be sold in the mid-to-$400 range.
The $399 price is an increase of $10 from the current Xeon E6-2650v3, and will give you a quad core processor that will do about 150MBps per core.
It also supports 4K video, 4K display output, and USB 3.1 Gen 2.
This is the same processor that was available in the X5-7700K ($379) and the X7-7750k ($399).
While the $399 Intel chip will be cheaper than the Intel Xeon Phi and Xeon Phi v3 chips, it still has some competition in the form of AMD’s own new processor, the Athlon 64 X4 800K ($699).
The Athlon 65 X4 7600K ($999) is Intel’s latest flagship CPU, but it only supports quad-channel DDR4 RAM, so it can’t run as fast as Intel’s new chip.
Intel has not revealed pricing or specifications for the new Xeon E3-1280 v3 chip.
