PPGA478 & PPGA479


Not being a laptop cpu guru, I'm not sure what the difference is.

Can anyone confirm that the one on the left is a PPGA478 and the one on the right is the PPGA479?

I know what the chip I have is, the board is more of a mystery to me.

My cpu is like the one on the left, but the board accepts one like the cpu on the right.

Doesn't the board have a model# you can google? That should be able to tell you what socket it is if it isn't printed right on the socket itself.

I can get the board number today from someone, I just wanted to research it last night.

I think it is actually PPGA478 on the left and PGA478 on the right.

Seems I'll need to buy a newer CPU.

there are older mobile sockets using the same designation as in PPGA478 that were strictly P4-M mobile cpus. the latter with same PPGA478/479 were labled as you said and ment for core/core2/core2 duo cpus. here is something i put together that might help ya out, did this a long time ago for a gent at OCZF.
