Default All CPU Sockets

There has been a new article posted.

Title: All CPU Sockets
URL: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/373

Here is a snippet:
"Starting with the 486 processor all PC processors started to be “socketed” instead of being soldered directly to the motherboard. Since then both Intel and AMD have been creating several different soc..."

Comments on this article are welcome.

Wow, thanks for checking everything for us. I have just fixed those bugs.

Once again, thank you very much.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

No problem.

AMD has made things a lot more simplified. With S754, S939 and SAM2, if the CPU fits the board socket, it will work. With Intel, on the otherhand, even if the CPU matches the same socket as the board, there is no guarantee it will work (chipset conflicts). Kudos to AMD for proper design and execution.

Time to update this list, isn't it?
Adding Sockets AM3, 1156 and 1366.
Also check the data sheet links. The ones I tried pointed at files no longer available.

Cheers
Olle

There is actually a Socket 370 out there that only supports mendochinos.

And the mobile Socket 478 has nothing to do with the desktop version, as far as I know.

AM2 and AM2+ are almost identical, the main difference is that the am2+ has 2 voltages for the CPU (NB + Cores) while the AM2 has just one and of course mostly HT3.0 instead of 2.0.

And the AM3 socket (not in the list) has 941 pins while actual AM3 CPUs only have 938 pins.

Hi guys,

Thanks, we will be updating this tutorial very soon, there are several new sockets not included there.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

This is not true. I started looking into this because I distinctly remembered my old 386 being socketed, not soldered. So I got to looking.
Intel 80386
1988
PGA-132

You are correct. The 386 had both versions, soldered or socketed.

Default Great Article

I love reading about this stuff, old hardware is cool. I still run across some of these old sockets, the info is much appreciated (I repair a lot of old systems, mostly donated by friends and neighbors). Thanks again, Hardware Secrets Team.
