A type of CPU socket (also called processor socket) used for AMD Turion 64, Athlon 64 Mobile and Sempron processors. The Socket S1 contains 638 holes in the socket for CPU pins. Socket S1 supports dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM, dual core mobile processors and also supports virtualization. Socket S1 may also be called AMD Socket 638.
- Socket 939
A type of CPU socket (also called processor socket) used for the AMD64 range of processors. 939 is the number of holes in the socket for CPU pins. Motherboards that use Socket 939 can support dual channel DDR SDRAM memory. See “What You Need to Know About Motherboards” in the Quick Reference section of
- Socket 8
The form factor for Intel’s Pentium Pro microprocessors. The Pentium Pro was the first microprocessor not to use the venerable Socket 7 form factor. The Pentium II microprocessors use an even newer form factor called Slot 1. Socket 8 is a 387-pin ZIF socket with connections for the CPU and one or two SRAM dies […]
- Socket 754
A type of CPU socket (also called processor socket) used for AMD 64 bit microprocessors. 754 is the number of holes in the socket for CPU pins. Socket 754 supports up to 3 single channel memory DIMMs.
- Socket 7
The form factor for fifth-generation CPU chips from Intel, Cyrix, and AMD. All Pentium chips, except Intel’s Pentium Pro (Socket 8) and Pentium II (Slot 1), conform to the Socket 7 specifications. Intel has decided to phase out Socket 7 and replace it with Slot 1.
Slang term. Short for Same old Software, as a Service.
