That must be a typo. S478 is Netburst only.

It says 775 and then S478. It has to be wrong.

AFAIK the pentium M has always been socket 478 whats so strange about it?

Nothing "strange" 'xept the price, maybe. :retard: Intel is still pushing that crap Prescott for fear of admitting a defeat while a Dothan would run much cooler and with similar performance in most areas.

PS: 755 is the model number, not the socket

Doh, you're right. No more early morning posting for me. I don't know what I was thinking.

ok, so a Dothan can be installed in a P4P800 mobo for example?

No they are not pin compatible, if you install a dothan on a p4 mobo you'll probably fry your CPU, or your mobo.

Now that you mention it, It's a near certainty that Dothans run at a lower voltage. It'd probably be akin to sticking a PIII-LV that just happened to have 478 pins into a P4 motherboard. I would guess the motherboards would refuse to recognize such a chip, but if they did the chip would likely be overvolted.

Considering a number of boards had trouble recognizing a different core of the P4 flavor (Prescott), assuming they recognize a Dothan could be fatal for the CPU.

Still, if I had money to burn, it'd be fun trying.
