Dual core Pentium 4 won't work on 925 & 915

CeBIT 2005 Some pin signalling incompatibility

EVEN THOUGH INTEL made the 8xx generation of its dual core Pentiums socket compatible with its current socket 775, we are hearing that its new dual core CPUs won't work on existing boards.
It's socket compatible, so you will be able to plug it into the same sort of place, but you won't be able to make it work. It seems that the CPU has turned out to be somewhat incompatible with existing 915 and 925 socket 775 motherboards.

The motherboard manufacturers will have to redesign the motherboard in order to make dual core 8xx CPUs work in existing motherboards but it's unlikely that anyone will do such a thing.

Early adopters of socket 775 will have to buy a new motherboard based on the 945 or 955 chipset in order to make their new dual core CPU work.

Many won't be happy to replace their motherboards just months after they bought them but they really don’t have any other choice. µ

Sorry for the typo.

Hmm yeah I don't know that either. I thought the P-M was lower then the P4. To put an P4 heatsink on the aopen board you had to modify the retention bracket. But there's a power connector and a jumper in the way I see?

well that's a dumb move...

couldn't they just use dip switches and a 90° fanconnector?

I wonder how they will make that work since I don't see any mouning holes on their convertor, so the stock heatsink is a nono.


maybe it's still a preproduction design and we won't see any of this on the final version
