What is the difference betwenn "Slot A" and "Socket A" ?

Discussion in 'Motherboards' started by Peter Meister, Nov 29, 2006.

  1. I am a bit confused about the difference of motherboard sockets
    labelled "Slot A" and "Socket A".

    Often it is written that AMD Athlon CPUS fit into SLot A
    and at other places into Socket A.

    So if Athlon CPUS fit into both types then the socket types must be the same ?

    Or are there any differences ?
    Which one is the "better" ?

    Can both socket types hold AMD Athlon mobile resp AMD Athlon XP mobile CPUs ?
