Slot 1

It was revealed previously in this chapter that the Pentium Pro wasn’t great for Intel profitability, and it was a real dog running Windows 9.x. However the Pro CPU is so good at running NT/Windows 2000 that manufacturer stuck with the Pro chip until the Xeon was released.

Slot 1 uses a SEC (Single Edge Contact) that looks a bit like a game cartridge with 242 contacts.

Figure 39: Two Slot 1 connectors with a Pentium II inverted to display the contacts. This is an SMP-capable system board.
