Okay, you got me there...

Unless of course you happen to be using a generic motherboard, which was
the point i was getting at. You can use a generic motherboard and chuck
in whatever you like (a dx2, dx, sx), BUT you won't get the same
performance out than out of a PC with a motherboard specifically built
for a 486dx2 (or whatever). Which is why a lot of the pentiums on the
market aren't as good as they can be, they (the motherboards) aren't
specifically designed for the Pentium dual-channeled architecture (or was
it dual-piped???). This leads a lot of people to believe then, that
having a PC with a ZIF socket for the P24t upgrade will not give them
much of a performance boost when the chip is released.
All IMHO of course,
