For your MAC, you need to ask Apple about processor support. Apple has requested that all inquiries regarding their platform be directed to them.

It depends on the motherboard requiremensts and if the processors have to have the same stepping.

Look under "ordering and compliance" here:

Hello gdami3,

 

Thank you for joining the Intel community

 

Due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help. You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your request. Thank you for understanding.

 

For online documentation on Xeon processors, you can go here

 

To properly identify your Xeon processor follow this article.

The numbers you need to match are processor family and speed.

For more details about the upgrade options for your system you want to check with Apple support

 

Hope it helps
