Hi,

Can anyone please explain to me the differences between E5-2699A V4, E5-2699 V4 & E5-2696 V4?

Only difference that I've seen is that E5-2699A V4 has a couple of hundred more MHz base clock .

The E5-2696 v4 also has a marginally higher TDP and 100MHz faster turbo (only with fewer than 10 cores loaded).

2699Av4 has 0.2GHz higher base clock and all core turbo than 2699v4. It may do better in high core count usage applications like rendering.

For Single/Dual socket CPUs the highest end is E5-2699v4(pro is higher single core turbo)and E5-2679v4(pro is higher TDP, means higher sustained all-core turbo at high load)

But the full spec of BDW die is 24c, there is a E7-8894v4 which has that many cores and 2.9-3.4GHz turbo clk.

Wikipedia is much more complete than ARK, with a lot of OEM infos added by many people( incl. me ;) ). List of Xeon microprocessors - Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Looked promising but with a Tcase of 53ºC and 200W TDP that should require some really beefy thermal solution....quite the oddball though :)
