As revealed here some months ago, no-one should show surprise at the connectors on K7 processors. The AMD K7 processor shares the Alpha 21264 bus with its young cousin. The chipset handles SMP stuff, and two way copper connectors just denote a two way system -- a typical PC configuration these days -- unless you have a Celeron of course. An architect points out to us that two way connectors do not exist on the Alpha EV6 connectors, but that's because they're aimed at high end systems up to 128 Alpha processors, as already revealed here. But, says the architect, there may well be a difference between Slot A and Slot B. The architect pointed us to a site at our bitter competitors at Ziff Davies who posted an analysis of the Alpha at 21264 However, that report seemed to have gone West by the time we'd seen it. Compaq and the Alpha consortium refused to comment at press time. ®
