Dual Mobile Pentium III 1.1GHz (SL5QW) on Asus P2B-DS motherboard?

    I've found couple of ads on eBay for Mobile Pentium III 1.1GHz
    processors (ad says they are SL5QW). These processors have 1.75V core
    and 100MHz FSB, and I was wondering if they are going to work in my
    P2B-DS motherboard (rev 1.5, not sure what voltage chip it has) with
    Asus 370-DL slotket adapters set to 1.8V. I guess they should, the
    only thing that I'm worried about is that ad specifically says "Mobile
    Pentium III". Is there any difference between "mobile" and "normal"
    version of Pentium III that can byte me? Or did seller simply wrote
    "mobile" because he pulled processors out of laptop (and there really
    isn't separate "mobile" version of this processor)?

    I couldn't find any information on Intel's web site that would answer
    my questions.

    <http://processorfinder.intel.com/> says this is not a mobile P3 cpu.

    BTW, yes a mobile P3 would be a problem because the package type is
    completely different (not socket 370). It sounds like there's already
    hackery being contemplated and I'm not familiar with your board but keep
    in mind the best P3 to get is the tulutin P3's with 512K L2 cache.
    They're 1.5 volt and use a 133Mhz bus. Probably a long shot to get
    working in a slot type board.

    BTW, anyone running a tulutin in a tyan Tiger 100 dual cpu board? I'd
    love to know how ;)

    That looks like a 1.1GHz/100Mhz/256KB Coppermine. It is socket 370.
    The word "mobile" doesn't appear on this page:


    This is the spec update for Pentium III.

    The Mobile Pentium III list is pretty strange looking (click "Go").
    Note the socket pin count is bigger.


    You've probably already seen Roland's FAQ:

    There are some comments from "P2B" here:

  4. For questions like this I always suggest powerleap.com as a place to
    look for information. They make (made?) a "slocket" which allowed a skt
    370 CPU to run in slot boards. Sorry, long time ago, I may be thinking
    P-II rather than P-III but worth a look anyway.

  5. I've checked their web site already couple of days ago (found it in
    FAQ). The prices they have are insane. It costs about the same to buy
    *entire* system from Dell (Celeron D 2.4GHz, 80GB disk, 256MB RAM) as
    they are charging for single PL-iP3/T with 1.4 GHz P3. Go dual, and I
    could almost buy 1U dual P4 server for that price. I simply don't
    understand why would anybody buy those adapters from PowerLeap?

    Anyhow, thanks to everybody who answered. I'll be probably buying
    those 1.1 GHz processors, if seller finally reposnds to my email (to
    confirm the processors are really SL5QW (which would mean they really
    are not in "mobile" packaging), and that he will not use UPS for

  6. That's easy, because a system is more than CPU and motherboard. If you
    have an investment in memory, video, or particularly an embedded app
    with custom hardware attached, it's cost effective. If your company has
    different pockets labeled upgrade and replace, you may be able to get
    funding for a better CPU but not a new system.

    There's obviously a market for their stuff, or they wouldn't be here.
