    Cluster-on-die technology in latest Xeon processors


      Dear Intel Forum,


      I want to build a many-core system with many NUMA nodes.

      Cluster-on-die technology would be useful to build many NUMA nodes. For example, 4 socket processors with cluster-on-die will show 8 NUMA nodes.

      According to documentations and some threads (Haswell EX E7 V3 and the cluster-on-die QPI snoop mode) in this forum, however, not all latest Xeon processors support the technology.


      My questions are:

      1. Some documents clearly say that Intel Xeon E5 2600 V3 processors support Cluster-on-die for more than 10 core processors.

      Are there any other (E5/E7) processors that support cluster-on-die?

      For example, does E5 4600 V3 processor support cluster-on-die?


      2. How many sockets can I build with cluster-on-die?

      Can I use four socket E5 2600 processors with clustert-on-die (snoop-mode)? It seems E5 2600 usually targets 2 socket platform.


      Thank you very much in advance.
