Default what is the different between intel i7 and pentium III xeon?

i purchaesd a new pc which should come with i7 920 with 6 Gb.

however, board of trade in chicago, broker tested the functions and showed that the chip was actually pentium III xeon functioning ability.

how could i VISUALLY compare an i7 with a pentium III xeon, pls?

i searched and looked at several different pix on various location but i am still not too sure how to confront the cunning vendor?

could someone help me out, pls?

i have about 48 hours to confront the vendor?

my email: nakachalet@gmail.com

thx much for your assistance.

A Core i7 CPU is physically much larger + it doesn't have pins at the bottom
a Pentium 3 (Xeon or not) is much smaller and has pins

use CPu-Z http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php to check in Windows

P3



Core i7

Jmke is right on there,

go and download CPU-Z, and run the program, it will tell you everything you need to know. I wouldn't suggest physically looking at the chip - no offense intended, but the fact you need to ask this might be a hint that you shouldn't be pulling off the CPU fan to look.

Also, you can just goto start>right click Computer>

Your processor, RAM, and system type should be listed there.

How did they test this and not be able to tell you excatly what hardware you are running?
