moved to a different method of plugging their CPU's [changed many times since] and absolutely would not license their use to AMD.[for any real amount of mooney. LOL]
Intel's first was called Slot 1, AMD's Slot A. AMD made K^'s up to 350 MHz for super socket 7 mobo's in order to get a mobo with 100 MHz FSB. K7's are Athlons.
another computer Im working on,I think has a bad processor a AMD K7...it has a mount casing that slips into I think they call it a "A" slot...I also have a Pentium 2..that looks like it will slide right into the mount ....are they interchangable...can I install the Pentium in lou of the AMD
