    Xeons are all over the place. Some have 6 cores with no HT, some don't have IGPs, some don't have turbo boost, some can overclock, and so on. Then you have models where the same name has been recycled year after year but just has a new version number, which can get a little confusing at times. If anyone thinks Intel's desktop parts have confusing names, nothing compares to Xeon. Though, I'd argue ARM can be more confusing.

    Phoronix: Upcoming Linux Tests With A $300 Broadwell-EP Xeon CPU

    Unfortunately Intel Corp hadn't sent over any Broadwell-EP hardware earlier this year when launching these new Xeon E5-2600 V5 server processors nor when it came to the high-end consumer Broadwell-E processors. However, I ended up buying a Xeon E5-2609 v4 Broadwell-EP this week for a new system and will be running a variety of upcoming tests...
