Almost correct...  Socket 7 is available in both split-voltage and
non-split-voltage variants.  I don't believe there is a hard and fast
speed where the split occurs (that is, I think 90MHz Pentiums were
available in both Socket 5 and Socket 7 varieties).  Oh, and there's no
"Slot 7", yet.  (Slot 8 may very well exist, think James Bond)

On a related note, does anybody know what the fastest non-split-voltage
Socket 7 CPU I can get is?  I was thinking of swapping out the WinChip
200 in my iOpener Xterm for something with a little more balls.
