Intel Socket 5 Specification

Designation: Socket 5

Number of Pins: 320

Pin Rows: 5 (staggered)

Voltage: 3.3 volts

Motherboard Class: Pentium

Supported Processors: Pentium 75-133 MHz, Pentium OverDrive

Description: Socket 5 is the first socket designed for the mainstream (second generation) Pentium processors. It supports low-speed Pentiums from 75 to 133 MHz. Higher-speed Pentiums such as the 166 MHz and 200 MHz, and the newer Pentiums with MMX, will not work in a Socket 5 because they have an extra pin. They must be used in a Socket 7. Pentium OverDrives to upgrade Socket 5 Pentiums exist to allow upgrades to these motherboards. Socket 5 is now obsolete, replaced by Socket 7.
