    P3 could be PGA370 OR Slot 1

    P4 is PGA478

    P4 Xeon is PGA 603 or PGA 604

    What do you mean, what am I talking about? PGA=Pin Grid Array Would you like me to get REALLY complicated? OK... PIII techically is a FC-PGA 370 or FC-PGA2 370, a P4 is a FC-mPGA 478. The P4 Xeon is FC-mPGA 604 or PPGA INT3 603. Sorry if the you guys don't understand this, but that is the TRUE socket names.

    You are wrong. PIII is PGA370 Here ya go http://www.intel.com/design/pentiumiii/prodbref/index.htm?iid=ipp_dlc_procp3p+prodb_p3p& Check it for yourself.

    That was funny!

    I love it when you say the full socket names: It's like when doctors use the latin names for diseases/illnesses.

    Let's see if I can remember them all.
    Socket 1 was the 80386(SX/DX) processors (BAD FPU's) [AKA Overdrive Socket]
    Socket 2 was the 80486(SX/DX,2,4/DLC) processors (Bad FPU's)
    Socket 3 was the 80586/Pentium/AMD K5 (Names changed due to law allowing I believe it was Cyrix to make any named 80X86 CPU's)
    Socket 5 was the PII(MMX)/AMD K5
    Socket 7 did the PII-MMX/ and the AMD K6/3D NOW
    Slot 1 PII-MMX, PIII-SSE
    Slot A Athalon, Duron
    Slot 2 Xeon
    Socket A(462) AMD-XP, MP, Duron chips
    Socket 370 PIII
    Socket 478 P4
    And I'll lean on Un4gIvEn1's true and appearently (Electrical Engineering) knowlege for the rest!!!
    I'm sure I missed some but those are the ones I've worked with.

    You all missed the P4 socket PGA423. Not that it's used anymore (afaik). :)
