ASUS S479 to S478 Adaptor : Pentium M on P4 Boards

ASUS is going to unveil in the next few weeks an adaptor called
CT-479 that allows a Pentium M mobile processor to be used on a Pentium 4 Socket
478 board. Since Pentium 4 and Pentium M has a common NetBurst Bus architecture
therefore an adaptor like this is possible. This adaptor is compatible with all
Pentium M processors like Banias and Dothan as well as Celeron M except ULV
Pentium M due to low voltages. Dothan should be able to benefit much from the
dual channel memory architecture of the 865/875/915/925X chipsets and certainly
overclockability should improve greatly as well using the desktop boards with
much overclocking features. At the present time, only the P4P800 is validated
completely and other models should follow soon. The adaptor will be paired up
with a PM cooler, a diskette and a jumper selection of FSB100/FSB133. It will be
available for a decent price of under US$ 50.
