 Slot B - DEC Alpha
 Slotkets - adapters for using socket processors in bus-compatible slot motherboards
: The 478 pin socket was introduced because it uses a micro-PGA layout which is physically smaller than
the socket 423. Socket 775 was introduced with support for PCI express, DDR2 memory and Intel's
version of the AMD64 processor extensions (called EM64T), but also moved to the new Land Grid Array
physical layout, where the pins are in the socket rather than on the CPU package, for better electrical
: These sockets are for CPUs with integrated memory controllers. The 754 pin models have a single
memory channel routed through the CPU pins. The 939 pin models have two memory channels, hence
the higher pin count. The 940 pin CPUs also have two memory channels but they require registered
memory, and most have support for SMP. Sockets F and AM2 are redesigned to support DDR2. The
Socket F contains 1207 pins (Added pins speculated to be for more scalability and better power
distribution. Socket AM2 has 940 pin-holes but does not support current AMD Opteron processors.
: The slot packages had two advantages; L2 cache could be installed on the processor package but on a
separate piece of silicon, and insertion and removal is simpler and easier. However, it lengthens the path
of the traces from the CPU to the chipset and so became unsuitable as clock speeds increased past
around 500 MHz. They were therefore abandoned and replaced with Socket A/Socket 370.
