This is just something I've been pondering and I haven't ASKED a non-admin question in 4 years.
- So it's my turn. . [I hope my pleasant nature hasn't pissed EVERYONE off....]

I have need of PCI-X (PCI-X, not PCI-E) slots for a variety of systems.
I prefer USB2 without using a card and Intel CPU's - WITH PINS!
That pretty much leaves my choices as P4 socket 478 and Xeon socket 604.
-
Assuming:
- Comparable chipset.
- Same FSB speed.
- Same CPU cache and Frequency.
- A single CPU configuration. [ONE CPU]
- Single core CPUs.
- Same amount/type of memory.
-
In other words the only significant difference is P4 vs Xeon....

What are the pros and cons of using one vs the other?

Like:
Xeon is better at .....
P4 is better at ....

Is there even any difference?
