Several Japanese sites are billing an adaptor which allows the conversion of Pentium Pro's Socket Eight to a Socket 370 configuration. (See for example, this site). The systems are set to arrive in early August, and will allow single and dual Socket Eight motherboards to take Celeron S370 processors at multiple speeds, again in single and dual combos. The Pentium Pro (mostly) came in speeds of 150, 180 and 200MHz, so the upgrade may give old systems a boost. No prices are yet available, but Intel said that it did not support such third party adaptors. At one time, Intel used to get additional money for its old processors by offering so-called Overdrive upgrades. But that business no longer exists. Intel did create an Overdrive for the Pentium Pro, allowing systems to be upgraded to a Pentium II/333 with full speed on-die cache, our Mr Sherriff points out. ®
