That sounds partly right. Socket 7 was AMD K6-2 and various flavours of
Pentium, IIRC. And probably the Cyrix 6x86. <quick check> The mobo I have
downstairs distinctly says "Socket 7" and currently contains a P5-200, has
contained a 6x86, and will fit a K6-2 (though the mobo wouldn't support the
voltages I needed). I'm pretty sure the Athlon and Duron take another...
wait, I've got a mobo for that too. <another check> Socket 462. Oooh! A
CR2032! And the mobo is bad, no need to let it sit in a useless mobo.
