    Hello , He is Correct all the Version hace 1366 socket These processors integrate games instructions already supported by the Core 2 processors, ie the instruction sets MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1 but Nehalem architecture brings the support of the game 'SSE4.2 instructions. For the rest, virtualization, Hyper-Threading technology, the XD Bit and the Demand Based Switching. This latest technology is an enhanced derivative of the Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology.

    Hello , the age of Nehalem is finally upon us and with it comes Intel’s new Socket LGA 1366 processor interface. Socket LGA 775 has lived a long and distinguished life, longer than any other Intel processor socket to date. To put this in perspective, when LGA 775 first came on the scene we were still using Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) graphics cards. For cooler manufacturers, Intel’s i7 couldn’t come soon enough. Since LGA 775 reigned supreme for such a long period of time, cooler sales have steadily declined. With diminishing returns on investment, funding for research and development has also dipped and without strong R&D, innovative new products come few and far between

    Estinguished Sirs and Madams.

    The new Mac Pro┬┤s now comes with One 2.66GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem" processor, or Two 2.26GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem" processors.

    My question is, are the motherboards for these two options, the same?

    And, is it possible to upgrade the first with a similar prosessor (making TWO 2.66 GHz prosessors)?

    Aaaaand, is it possible to upgrade either ones with better prosessors as newer technology becomes available?

    yes its possible you can do it via custom configuration, Apple Mac Pro "Quad Core" 2.66 can be equipped with a single 2.93 GHz Quad Core Xeon W3540 processor. Its a complicated procedure and you will have to spend about 500$ for that.

    The Motherboards is same and you can obviously upgrade the processing speed from 2.26 GHz to 2.66 GHz.
