Asus to release Pentium M => Pentium 4 adaptor?

@ 2005/03/05
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.

so, would it be able then, with this adaptor, to run a pM with a dual channel memory setup, and an AGP8x card?

Like my "turbo" socket I put ontop of my 486/66 to become 133mhz

Interesting indeed...

I've been running the P4 2A in P4P800, the dual memory makes the easily overclocked CPU run nicely and cool.

There are plenty of second hand/used P4 M on the market.
