VIII  Sockets & Slots

A CPU is useless without being plugged in. The first CPU designs were bigger brother versions of RAM sockets. That is to say they used DIP (Dual Inline Packaging) as you saw in the memory chapter.

The 80286 brought a design change to what is called PGA (Pin Grid Array). The PGA is used through the Pentium Pro, and then dropped for Slot1, only to return.
