- Socket 5
- Socket 7
Socket 7 is a 321-pin ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) processor socket and is a superset of the previous 320-pin Socket 5. Socket 7 provides the option and capability to support both unified-plane processors and split-plane, dual voltage processors. Socket 7 requires that the CLK and PICCLK signals be driven at 3.3 volts.
All Intel® Pentium® processors that are compatible with Socket 5 are compatible with Socket 7, but Intel Pentium Processors with MMX technology are designed for Socket 7 and are not compatible with Socket 5.
The presence of a particular socket on a motherboard does not necessarily indicate that motherboard will support all speeds of a particular processor. Contact the system or motherboard manufacturer for information on which processor speeds are supported.
For more information on Socket 7, refer to Chapter 17 of the Intel® Pentium® Processor Family Developer's Manual, 1997.
