Intel Xeon E5-1680 v3 & E5-2687W v3 Compared To The Core i7 5960X On Linux: While the Intel X99 series motherboards are popular right now with the Intel Core i7 Haswell Extreme Edition CPUs, some of these motherboards are also compatible with the Haswell-based Xeon processors. The MSI X99S SLI PLUS does support a number of the Haswell-EP Xeon processors, including the E5-2687W v3 that's a ten core processor plus Hyper Threading. In making for some interesting Linux results, MSI kindly sent over the Xeon E5-1680 v3 and E5-2687W v3 to test them with their X99S SLI PLUS motherboard under a variety of conditions with Linux.
