|First, the Pentium M is inserted into Socket 479 which is pin-compatible neither with LGA775 nor with Socket 478. It seems to be easy to remove this problem by simply adjusting the mainboard’s wiring. But the problem is the input/output buffers of the Pentium M use a different signaling voltage than ordinary chipsets. The I/O buffers of the Pentium 4 use the same voltage as the core, but the Pentium M’s buffers work at a voltage reduced by 1.05V. This is the reason for the Pentium M to be so poorly compatible with classic chipsets.|
