Intel's fastest server CPU for 2010 is 6-Core Xeon 5680
The game of chasing the latest and fastest CPU is getting quite boring. What most of you guys know as Gulftown Core i7 980X Extreme in the enthusiast desktop market will get a different brand in the server market. Intel calls this six-core CPU generation simply Westmere EP and the fastest CPU throughout 2010 will be Xeon X5680 clocked at 3.33GHz with massive 12MB of cache, six-cores and twelve threads support. Apart of the different socket, it is the same CPU as Core i7 980X but the server one will sell for even more than $999 [Ridiculous. -Ed.] price.

Sounds like http://www.tcmagazine.com/comments.php?id=31518&catid=2 was spot on, then.
Wonder what the X5650 will cost, surely less than the 980X... can buy two for the EVGA dual-socket board.
