    I was wondering if anyone can inform me of if/why intel delevoped the slot 1 for its new processors ie intel PIII and then on some revisions reverted back to the PGA format.

    Along my travelslearning for the A+ networks course there is mention of the above formats and out of my own personal curiosity i wondered if there is a speed difference between the two in data throughput?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Hi Benmark,

    I'm afraid I don't have the answer for you right this minute, as our In-house Chip Junky has just glued himself to the inside of one ot the CertForums Servers with industrial strength heat-sink dope :roll:

    However, I think it would be fair to say that the A+ exam will not expect that level of detailed knowledge from you .

    Still, I know what you mean when you get a question in your head that you need answered to keep you sane .... :idea:

    Hey ben,

    Take a look at this webpage, its not 100% of what your looking for but there is a section about the change from sec to pga etc. if you click the dropdown menu on the page then choose the Pentium III & Celeron.
