    It's definitely not going to be a month or so. With the lack of competition from AMD there's pretty much no incentive from Intel to release IB-E any time soon especially as SB-E hasn't been out for that long and there isn't really the appetite for such high end consumer CPUs.

    There's 8 core/16 thread SB-E processors out already under the Xeon name, although they have quite low clock speeds and a very high price tag.

    I believe slh28 is correct
    Ivy Bridge-E won't debut until Q3 of next year. About six months after Haswell.

    EDIT: Ninja'ed by slh28. I'd add that Sandy Bridge Xeon and SNB-E Xeon are multiplier locked for the most part ( BCLK overclocking only).
