New Haswell's aren't just for the desktop, they go in the server room too

HP is releasing numerous new systems that will be running the Haswell-EP E5-2600v3, a tower format ML350 and the rack-mount DL360 and DL380 systems as well as a BL460c blade server and two brand new entry level models, the racked DL360e and DL380e.  These systems will be optimized heavily to take advantage of a proprietary PCI Express workload accelerator, HP Smartcache, HP DDR4 SmartMemory and Flexfabric adapters.  We won't see pricing until the release date of September 8 but until then you can check out the some of the stats at The Register.

"The Gen9 Proliant systems will be made available on 8 September, HP said at the London launch event, and will be based on Intel's upcoming Xeon E5-2600v3 processors, which the chipmaker has yet to release."

HP just buying intel CPUs at commodity prices because everyone else is runnin power 8

Will be starting in 2015, For the Power8s, and what is with all this brand obfuscation, those are server Xeons, based on the Haswell microarchitecture, and what about Those TSX instructions, didn't Intel have to put the lock out in the BIOS, on the lock elision, because of some errors. HP is also buying ARM for its high density servers. It appears Intel's No longer using the ATOM brand, and trying to make users, and OEMs think they are getting something different than ATOM, in the mobile market. For sure HP, like Google is looking at Power8, HP builds servers with lots of different ISAs, besides x86, or just Intel's brand of overpriced x86. Intel is trying to pump up the Haswell brand, and delaying the Broadwell's mainstream entry into 2015, Nvidia's got a good contender for the chromebook market with the K1(both 32 bit, and Denver variants)
Power8 is a RISC design that eats Xeon, no matter the microarchitecture! Whatever AMD or Nvidia do, the graphics will always be better than Intel's, Apple uses PowerVR, and Hopefully Apple will use the PowerVR wizard in some of its products, even Intel has made use of imagination's IP, at one time. Imagination the maker of the PowerVR GPU, is pushing MIPS, and the MIPS ISA, the original RISC ISA that started it all, maybe imagination will get a Power8 license also.

If Nvidia and AMD would both get a Power8 license, they could potentially put Intel out of the loop for gaming, or if AMD and Nvidia decide to include CPUs with their discrete GPUs, with AMD x86, and Nvidia Denver ARMv8 ISA based. Hell AMD and Nvidia could take the Power8 reference design, and produce a line of Power8 based PC and Laptop SKUs, and give Intel the old one finger salute! Even Apple's P.A. semiconductor engineers, and microarchitecture designers, could fit the Mac Pro with a reference Power8, and they also have the chops to design their own line of custom Power8 based PC/laptop SKUs, just look what the P.A. semiconductor folks did with the Cyclone(A7), Apple sure made a good acquisition, in P.A. semiconductor.

For sure if Nvidia, AMD, Apple, and a whole darn industry(Like with the ARM ISA/IP), start to manfacture the Power8, via the Licensing options now available for Power8, Intel could find itself on the cold outside, of many a device, in the not too distant future.

ISAs! ISAs! monolithic monopolies will Fade Away!
There's more to computing than just x86, and watch those bumps, riding turnip carts, that ground's not soft, its paved highway, and look over there it's a cement pond, you never saw one of those growing up!

P.S. how 'bout the unnatural fasciation with Duck's dew-wackies, you'll take them clockwise, and counterclockwise!!!

Someone did a copy-paste from Gen8 launch... half of your info is flat out wrong.

What do you expect... it's Jeremy.
