I'm stealing this news from my buds at NVNews,
apparently Asus is coming out with a Socket
479 to Socket 478 converter... That's pretty cool. =)
We had dreamed some, Asus made! Indeed, should see us appearing from here
a few weeks an adapter allowing to make function Pentium M on a mother chart
Pentium 4 Socket 478 standard! This adapter, made possible by the fact that
the two processors divide the same bus, will function with all the range of
Pentium M, of Banias in Dothan, Celeron included/understood. Only Pentium Mr.
ULV will not be supported, this one require a too weak voltage. If compatibility
on the level of the BIOS still remains to be evaluated, there is no doubt that
the changes to be brought there will be mainly cosmetic and that the Asustek
charts will not pose a problem. Dothan on a P4C800 or a P4GD1 is an excellent
news, especially considering the price of the specialized charts Pentium Mr.
Although at the present time, only the P4P800 is validated completely, there
is no doubt that other models will follow soon.
