Motherboard Compatibility Matrix Guide

Questions about compatibility?
Compatibility information on motherboards listed in this guide comes from various sources, including internal testing, third-party testing, system manufacturer testing, and end-user testing. Testing may range from limited application and O/S testing to a complete and thorough suite of tests. To the best of Intel's knowledge, this list contains up-to-date and accurate information. However, due to the many possible variations of a particular motherboard resulting from motherboard BIOS, or other system revisions, the compatibility of a listed motherboard may vary from the original configuration listed in this guide. The compatibility of a listed motherboard may also depend on the hardware and peripheral configuration. Although we make every reasonable effort to ensure that the information in this guide is accurate, Intel assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions.

The following is a list of known motherboards that have been tested with OverDrive® processor.

Note End-user will still need to check that their motherboard and chassis combinations meet thermal dissipation and fitting requirements for the Overdrive processor before using!

You must confirm, as a minimum, system compatibility for mechanical and thermal requirements with the system manufacturer or integrator via the information contained in The Overdrive Processor Socket Specification for the Pentium® Pro processor.

The OverDrive Processor Socket Specification for the Pentium Pro processor is contained in Chapter 17 of the Pentium Pro Processor Family Developer's Manual.
