So I was looking to change my old setup, i7 email@example.comGhz which is getting old but still did the job, got it back in early 2010 and I was hoping that Intel would preview the LGA3647 at Computex or at least leak the details but that might have killed the sales. Anyway, so I got a Xeon E5 2630 V4 10 cores 20 threads, very cheap and I will be switching to it.
My needs are mostly workstation, I build Vmware/Virtualbox all the time, three monitors, family backups, medium gaming, home automation & surveillance, etc.
I followed the latest Computex event a bit, the refresh x99 motherboard are nice but mostly bling bling LED, which I don't care, I want a feature packed motherboard, RAID is a must, dual NIC is a must, 1 or 2 m.2, USB 3.1/Type-C., etc.
Is there any of the newly announced board currently available? If so, which one?
Otherwise, did I miss any announced date?
I was also looking at the Workstation motherboards, which are nice but most, if not all of them like the Asus WS didn't get a refresh yet, sadly.
The CPU won't get here until one or two weeks so I am not in a rush...
Also, what kind of overcloking can be done on a Xeon Broadwell-E CPU on x99, if any?
Thanks in advance.
