64 bit Xeons - compatible with current chipsets/motherboards?

Discussion in 'Intel' started by Luke Piasecki, Aug 12, 2004.

  1. Just wondering - which motherboards/chipsets are the recently announced
    64bit Xeons compatible with?

    Thank you.

    They require special Intel motherboards designed for Xeons. They will NOT
    work in standard motherboards.

    Because he believes anandtech to be nothing but an AMD shilling operation.
    What are the SPECint and SPECfp of the two?

  6. What do you mean by "standard motherboards?" If you mean non-Xeon
    obviously that's true. If you mean that they won't work in a Xeon
    motherboard where did you find that?

    I saw another article (can't find it now) saying that they would work in
    Intel Xeon motherboards with a BIOS upgrade. For no more than 15% I
    doubt even an OEM would want to use a new board, while as a new top of
    the line on an existing model they look very attractive if the price is

    Do you always ignore news you don't like? That is not a good idea.

    Thanks for answering his question Alex. As for JK, this is the INTEL
    newsgroup. You are being a pest. No one makes purchasing
    decisions based on scribes of anandtech. I have no idea why you are being
    such a pest other than apparent age.
