So how long 'til we get those D-1541's on the market.
On the look for a new home-lab board/cpu, and got a bit put off the 1540s because of the SR-IOV issues.
I would expect in the next few weeks. By the first or second week in March I would expect many options to be available.

Are there any confirmed clock speeds for wave 2 of the Xeon D's? I may look for something with either a higher clock speed or more cores than my D-1540 as my server gets hammered with transcoding jobs.

The 12/16 core parts are not officially released yet, so this is all speculation. If they are to stay within 45w TDP, they would likely need lower clocks to hit the TDP spec.
Yea that's what really has me curious. What the clock speed and TDP will be for both. I'd be OK with a slighly higher TDP if the clock speed stays at 2.oGhz.

How many streams are you doing that you need more power?
Most nights I have 6-8 streams going at once but I often times have a good amount of background transcoding taking place from movies and tv shows being synced to mobile clients for offline usage. While the live streams are not always transcoded (some are direct played), the background syncs will always have to be transcoded. So yea...I'm looking for more processing power without adding too much TDP since my server sits in a room temperature office and not a well cooled server room.

Asrock Xeon D boards delivered...Pics need to wait until evening...Need to get through day at work..
Awesome! I cannot wait. I got hands-on time in Taipei with the D-1540 based boards in October but we are still waiting on our samples.

Just noticed a couple "Coming Soon" additions on the SuperMicro site...SFP+ ports onboard LSI 2116? Yes please!

Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X10SDV-TP8F - D-1518, 2x10G SFP+, 6x1G, 2x PCIe x8, M.2
Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X10SDV-7TP4F - D-1537, 2x10G SFP+, 2x1G, 2x PCIe x8, M.2, 16xSATA3\SAS2
Ha! I did not know they had those on the site. I spoke to the product manager a few weeks ago so I have known about these for some time. We should have a first sample in 2-3 weeks so expect these to be after the X10SDV-4C-TLN4F and X10SDV-6C+-TLN4F reviews we will have over the next two weeks.

Buggers I wish they released these sooner..

Yea - I should have them in say 2-3 weeks so I am guessing retail availability will be a bit after that.

I was surprised you got your ASRock Rack boards so early actually.

Man...I'm going to have to trade in my X10SDV-TLNF for a board with 2 x 10G SFP+ just to give me more switch options. Can't really do anything with the copper NICs in my server right now.

I hope they make some of the higher core count versions with copper NICs still all of my 10GBe stuff is inside the same rack and I can't use half of my SG500x-8f8t without copper!(plus SFP+ cables are expensive)
