A second coming of the Xeon E5-2600 family uses the Ivy Bridge-EP architecture and will sport up to 12 cores, using 22nm Trigate technology.  The three CPUs which will be arriving are each aimed at a separate market segment with different core counts and TDP.  The lower power chips will sport either 4 or 6 cores and have a TDP between 40-80W with the same 15MB L3 cache as SB-EP.  The second has a 25MB L3 cache, 6, 8 or 10 cores and TDPs ranging from 70-130W and uses the same interconnects as previously existed.  The last is the beast with 12 cores, TDPs of 115-130W and three rings linking the cores and cache segments with a split memory controller.  Check The Register for more info on the high powered end of IDF.
