Intel Socket 6 Specification

Designation: Socket 6

Number of Pins: 235

Pin Rows: 4

Voltage: 3.3 volts

Motherboard Class: 486

Supported Processors: 486DX4, Pentium OverDrive

Description: Socket 6 is the last 486 class socket standard created by Intel. It is a slightly modified Socket 3, and it never caught on in the marketplace. Presumably, with Intel discontinuing the 486 line of processors, motherboard manufacturers did not see any need to incur the cost of changing their designs from the Socket 3 standard. Socket 6 is not used in modern motherboards.

Next: Intel Socket 7 Specification
