Sneak Peek at HP ProLiant BL660c E5-4600 v2 Offerings

It appears someone at HP slipped up and posted Intel E5-4600 v2 specs for the HP ProLiant BL660c Gen 8 blade server a few weeks ahead of Intel’s announcement later in Q1.  HP has since removed the details, but customers looking at the 4 socket blade server may be interested to know what HP will be offering, so check out Google’s cache of the HP QuickSpec at:

Not a new product, just an update in the CPU offering.  When Intel officially releases the E5-4600 v2 CPU, I’ll make sure to provide details along with the other blade server vendors offering.  I’ll also update the blade comparison document, so please make sure to check back often.
