Hope the rumor is correct

The new Xeons will purportedly be part of a Purley platform that's billed as the "biggest platform advancement since Nehalem." According to the slides, they will have up to 28 cores with Hyper-Threading support—an increase from the 22-24 cores expected in comparable Xeons based on Broadwell. They'll also feature new AVX-512 instructions. Thermal envelopes will reportedly span 45-165W.
