Socket 370
Jump to user comments
hardware, standard, processor (PGA370) A physical and
electrical specification for a motherboard processor
socket. Socket 370 uses a square SPGA ZIF socket with 370
pins, arranged 37x37 (sometimes described as 19x19).
Intel originally designed Socket 370 for PPGA Celeron
processors. Newer Socket 370 motherboards additionally
support FC-PGA Celeron and Pentium III processors.
The difference between the two versions is electrical;
some pins are used differently and voltage requirements have
been changed from Intel's VRM 8.2 to VRM 8.4. In
addition, Celeron processors require a 66 MHz front side bus
(FSB), and Pentium III processors require a 100/133 MHz FSB.
