PIII vs PIII Xeon

Discussion in 'Intel' started by Matthew Speed, Feb 13, 2004.

  1. Are these interchangeable? I have a system with a PIII/500 and am
    curious if I can just drop a PIII Xeon in and power up or if the Xeon
    requires a special MB.

    TIA

    Xeon requires a special motherboard chipset.
