They're effectively 100% the same, except that they tend to be better binned, and have a different name.
I think his xeon 3210 is actually 65nm kentsfield (same as Q6600, etc).
Could you tell me if it'd work with my board?
I looked, but didn't see any standard for nm size, although Xeon wasn't listed in the "CPU Type"
