Socket 7 and Socket 5 are very similar in appearance, but there are significant differences.
Socket 7 is defined as a superset of Socket 5, and can handle all the previous processors that worked in Socket 5.
The Slot A, Socket A, Socket 423, Socket 603, and Slot M chips all use a dual (2x) or quad-pumped (4x) bus that hits on the rising and falling edges of the clock, yielding a faster effective bus speed.

 CPU socket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term CPU socket (or CPU slot) is widely used to describe the connector linking the motherboard to the CPU(s) in certain types of desktop and server computers, particularly those compatible with the Intel x86 architecture.
Most CPU sockets and processors in use today are built around the pin grid array (PGA) architecture, in which the pins on the underside of the processor are inserted into the socket, usually with zero insertion force (ZIF) to aid installation.
Socket 775 was introduced with support for PCI express, DDR2 memory and Intel's version of the AMD64 processor extensions (called EM64T), but also moved to the new Land Grid Array physical layout, where the pins are in the socket rather than on the CPU package, for better electrical performance.

 Upgrade Processors - Intel Overdrive CPU's
Intel's Overdrive series was based on a standard CPU, with additional voltage regulators, for example, a 3.3V 486 CPU would be built with regulators to work on the old style 5 Volt socket.
These were often built in a QFP package and soldered to a socket adapter with the needed multiplier and voltage regulator circuits.
The Slocket was born to remedy this, a Slocket, as its name suggests is a Socket on a PCB that fits in a Slot 1, allowing the use of many standard Socket 370 CPU's in Slot 1 boards.

 CPU Socket Basics, Part 1 - Intel -= www.bigbruin.com =-
Socket T actually doesn't mount to a socket like the rest of processors on this list, as the pins usually found on the processor have been moved to the motherboard, and the processor now receives the 755 pins on its underside.
Socket T processors are basically the next generation of Celerons and Pentium 4s found on the Socket 478 format, continuing many of the same attributes, such as Hyper-Threading, on the Pentium 4 series.
Xeons are powerful processors all on their own, but the architecture of the CPU and supporting motherboards allows for serious systems to be configured with dual processors, or perhaps even four processors, to really make light work of even the most intensive application.

 CPU Socket Basics, Part 2 - AMD -= www.bigbruin.com =-
Socket A was the staple format in AMD's line-up for years, carrying the brand through the Athlon, Thunderbird, Duron, Athlon XP, Athlon MP, and Sempron classes of processors.
The number of pins found on the bottom of a Socket A CPU totals 462, and this is one of the few formats that is not named for the number of pins found on the processor.
Socket A processors ranged in top speeds from under 1 GHz to just over 2 GHz, but the identification of a Socket A processor's true speed is difficult due to AMD's use of PR (Performance Rating) grades instead of true processor speed as a sales tool.

The use of this socket lowered a lot the chances of breaking or bending the CPU pins during its installation or removal.
The socket created to be used together with the very first 486 processor wasn’t ZIF and didn’t allow you to replace the CPU with a different processor model.
Other socket standards were released for the 486 family after socket 1 — socket 2, socket 3 and socket 6 — in order to increase the number of CPU models that could be installed on the CPU socket.

In terms of computing power, the CPU is the most important element of a computer system.
The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks (or clock cycles) to execute each instruction.

 The Mainboard
After the CPU chip, the mainboard or "motherboard" is the most important component of any personal computer.
The LGA 775 is the newer design and may support slightly faster speeds, but it is most notable because the CPU is actually clipped onto the mainboard and will not (as Socket 478 did) pop out accidentally if you pull on the heat sink.
The support for CPU, memory, and PCI is pretty much the same from all vendors, so the choice of mainboard and chipset may be driven by video, USB 2, FireWire, audio, and integrated LAN.

 Tom's Blurb: The Intel Pentium II ('Klamath') CPU, Intel's Policy and the Competitor AMD with Its K6 | TG Daily   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Since the days of the 386 there used to be specially designed CPU sockets on the motherboard, where these square or rectangular little fl chips in 'pin grid array' design used to fit in.
This socket was not licensed by Intel and hence AMD and Cyrix just had to apply to the Socket 7 specification and you could swap an Intel Pentium CPU against an AMD or Cyrix one.
Now since Intel obviously saw a need for a new CPU connection to the motherboard, we are certainly allowed to ask what great new features this new 'Slot One' is coming along with and especially what the benefits are over the old Socket technique.

 Frequently Asked Questions
Most CPUs are of the PGA (Pin Grid Array) type, meaning there are pins underneath the processor which are inserted into the socket.
Generally, the name of the socket refers to the number of pins on the processor.
Recently, Intel developed the LGA (Land Grid Array), meaning the pins are on the socket on the motherboard rather than on the processor.

 PCI Express: Under the Hood of 2004's New Bus
Platform change is a regular occurrence in the world of PC hardware, and we're bracing for a big wave to hit in 2004.
Intel and AMD are expected to make a transition to new CPU packages, DDR-2 memory may or may not become the de facto performance standard, and Serial ATA will likely replace its parallel predecessor as the standard interface not only for hard disks but optical drives as well.
Since PCI Express also doubles as a chip-to-chip link at the board level, it could theoretically be used to replace a wide range of current bus and interconnect technologies, but is being targeted at fairly specific tasks.

 AMD HyperTransport innovation opens up CPU sockets to OEMs | TG Daily   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
As a result, according to Tom's Hardware Guide's Patrick Schmid who attended today's AMD briefing, other manufacturers will be able to develop co-processors that utilize the second socket (or third, or fourth) of AMD's new multi-socket systems, enabling graphics or physics processors to communicate with the CPU while bypassing the system bus.
With "4x4" and other AMD platforms, pairs of dual-core CPUs can be installed together, with "4x4" enabling two such pairs for eight total simultaneous cores.
Although AMD does not state this explicitly - perhaps in an attempt not to offend someone in particular - in bypassing the system bus, one also presumably bypasses the operating system, since no software drivers...or, more accurately, no software, may be necessary to implement such a communications link.
