    HP, IBM, and other "branded" Xeon processors: Are they the same as Intel?

    luddite

      I have noticed various retailers (including OEMs) selling Xeon processors with an OEM part number:

       

      For example:

       

      http://www.serversupply.com/products/part_search/request.asp?q=457935-B21

       

      Part No. 457935-B21

      Description:HP/COMPAQ - INTEL XEON E5430 QUAD-CORE 2.66GHZ 12MB L2 CACHE 1333MHZ FSB SOCKET LGA-771 80W 45NM PROCESSOR KIT FOR PROLIANT DL360 G5 SERVER (457935-B21). NEW BULK. IN STOCK.

       

      Is this the same as an "Intel" Xeon E5430 (BX80574E5430P, BX80574E5430A, AT80574KJ067N, EU80574KJ067N)?

       

      Or is there some sort of proprietary modification that limits this product to only HP/Compaq machines?
