Intel is getting their Skylake-EP Xeon E5 processor lineup ready for launch in mid-2017. And if this leak turns out to be true it looks like the Xeon E5-2699 V5 looks like Intel's response to AMD's upcoming Naples server platform. This chip breaks the trend Intel has had with their server parts and brings the core count up to 32. Intel recently announced the 22-core E5-2699V4A and the V5 platform core counts has been expected to increase to 24 and 28 cores, but Intel is increasing the core out by a staggering 10 cores (20 threads).
