How is xeon support?

Are xeons supported? I have seen people swap in xeons in the 2011 models so i would assume 2012 should be the same but i have not come across anyone who has done this.

The issue is the generation of Intel chips. I really don’t see any benefit if you already have an i7 chip and if you have an i5 then getting to an i7 would be what I would do. Keep in mind the needed micro code is held in the EFI so only the CPU series Apple has used is within the EFI.

Between the xenon being a Broadwell series as well as most have a higher TDP which would be to high for the system you really can’t use them.

This socket only supports Ivy and sandybridge anyways and the ones im looking at maintain the same tdp.

Also its a bit cheaper, chips are basically the same but i dont see a point paying an extra 10-15 bucks for essentially a name change.

In addition xeons are not present in the 2011 imac lineup either but still maintain compatibility.

I guess i will update this thread if it worked or not when i test it.
