HP plans to release in June an eight-socket ProLiant DL980 G7 server with up to eight 10-core E7 4800 processors, a spokeswoman said in an interview Wednesday. The server today is a four-socket system that supports Nehalem EX-based, eight-core Xeon X6550s with a clock speed of 2.0 GHz and 256 GB of standard memory. Such a configuration starts at $52,400.

Hewlett-Packard and Supermicro are among the first to max out the E7's power in 80-core, eight-socket servers. Other vendors, such as Cisco and Dell, are satisfied initially with a maximum of four-socket systems with up to 40 cores. Intel released its most powerful Xeon server family Tuesday. The Xeon E7 now takes the top end of the brand, while the E5 and E3 families hold the midrange and entry-level positions.
