but that's not really the point.
The point is, how can there be both a Pentium-M ->AND<- a Core/Core
Duo that are both listed as Socket-479?
Are there TWO different specs for Socket-479?
One for Pentium M, and one for Core/Core Duo's like the SL8VQ ???
Note for others: Pentium-M's and some Core Duo's (like the SL8VQ) are
listed as a Socket-479 not because they have 479 pins (they have 478
pins) but because Intel needed to come up with a different name for
that pin-out so they chose "479".
What's strange is that this page:
Shows a picture of the pin side of a Pentium-M (left) and Core Duo (on
The Core Duo has the same pin arrangement as a Socket-478 Pentium (!?)
(why do they look like the old P-3's ?)
Sort of like GM coming out with a new car, and they call it simply
