Socket 8 to Slot 1 Adapter Card Availability
Posted on 1998-08-26
I would like to get some Socket 8 to Slot 1 adapter cards. I currently have some Socket 8 motherboard systems. I have been thinking about investing in the Pentium II Overdrive upgrade path but since Socket 8 seems to be a dead platform I would like to get some of these adapters before I invest in this upgrade path so I can upgrade the motherboard later without losing my investment.
I remember when I first heard of these adapters shortly before the introduction of the first Pentium IIs. I read articles comparing a Pentium Pro (via one of these adapters) and a Pentium II tested in the same motherboard. The tests were run with both processors at the same speed (either the PII underclocked or the PPro overclocked).
Does anyone know where I can still get these?
