Socket-775, an update from the trenches

@ 2004/10/01
On June 22nd Intel launched their socket-775 platform which meant the introduction of a new socket for Pentium 4 processors and two new chipsets. Initially we were skeptic about the new socket-775, many of the motherboard manufacturers we talked to described it as fragile and they were expecting many product returns due to customers damaging the socket. In the past few months we’ve worked with quite a few socket-775 motherboards and we can honestly say that socket-775 isn’t as fragile as we thought. If you insert and remove the processor as intended you won’t damage the socket, nor will it cease to function after a few insertions.
