What is XEON?
Xeon is a 400MHz Pentium microprocessor designed by Intel for the purpose to cater the server needs of mid-range enterprise and workstations. Over a server motherboard, up to 8 Xeon processors (even more processors may also be combined) will be capable to perform multiprocessing process by using the same 100 MHz bus. This modern era processor has replaced the Pentium Pro with Intel’s main enterprise microchip. Xeon processor is basically designed for internet and large transactional database servers, multimedia applications, graphics that require moving a wide array of data more quickly. Xeon is the high-end processor of the Pentium series, which is originally based on Pentium microprocessor’s P6 architecture. In addition to this, it is specifically designed to work with a new and faster Peripheral Component Interconnect bus and Accelerated Graphics Port.
