@ everyone here saying that the Geode NX will be slower than the AXP:

It should be just as fast as a 1GHz TBred with a 266MHz bus, because that's what it is.

I personally wonder whether the Geode NX 1500@6W would work on a regular Socket A board. Doing some comparisons against the 1750@14W and some mobile Bartons, it seems that it would OC like a bat out of hell, and still be passively cooled.

I don't know why the 479-pin versions have the other pin. It might be for ULV support or something.

Not just notebooks, but yes, solder only.

It's most common use is thin-and-light notebooks, where there's no room for a socket. Shelton is also a 479-pin H-PBGA chip, BTW.

Basically, treat anything with "H-PBGA" as unusable, as you don't have the equipment to do it (most likely). If it says 478 pin PPGA or 478 pin PPGA FC-PGA2, and it is a Pentium M, it plugs into Socket 479. Proposal: How 'bout we all call Socket 479 by Socket M, to prevent confusion? All PPGA Pentiu...

ftp://download.intel.com/design/mobile/datashts/30218904.pdf page 47 is the P-M pinout (this is the Dothan datasheet, but the Banias has the same pinout - also, pin B2 doesn't exist on the PGA version (the interesting one), making it 478 pins). ftp://download.intel.com/design/Pentium4/datashts/30056...

OK, I understand it as: You can manipulate the CPU multiplier and voltage from the BIOS, but you can't really do it on a Celeron M. Now, if Intel's SpeedStep drivers work with the BIOS, you're good. Also, even if not, DFI (or x86-secret - I've heard that they're partially responsible for the develop...

@Mats: "Socket 479" is a moniker given to the PGA P-Ms by the enthusiast community, because they don't fit in the official Socket 478, and the BGA (ball grid array - meant to be soldered, not socketed) chips have 479 balls. However, Intel still calls them 478 because the PGA chips have one less pin ...
