A quite odd question about CPUs

You know how back in the old days how they used to have the CPU on a Aug connector ,I think it was called that kinda like pcie but it is different, could you get a pcie to Aug adapter and use one of those old CPUs as a "second processor" and still have your main modern processor on the motherboard? I would be very interested to know if anyone has ever tried this and know the results of whatever tests their were.

I googled PCI cpu card and from what I can gather they do not make them anymore, though I am admittedly not internet savvy. Was there a specific reason you wanted one?

I don't want one per say I was just wondering if it could be done and the benefits if any were there

Do a search for "Intel Phi"

Intel has been building PCIE co-processors for awhile, but there are limitations:
