I wonder how much Pot was smoked to come up with this idea.

I hated the Intel "Bunny People" ad campaign so much. Of course, I find the Blue Man stuff just as annoying, so... *shrug*

Random piece of history: The Pentium II's unique "single edge contact" connector (which was also used on the early Athlons) was an interesting piece of architectural compromise. Basically, the Pentium Pro, on which the P2 was based, was a socketed CPU with a massive on-die cache. At the time, it was a lot more expensive to build large, fast, on-chip caches (which is why the PPro was targeted at servers), so Intel did the next best thing--they put the cache near the CPU, but off-die (making it cheaper to produce but slower) and halved the clock speed. The CPU and its cache communicated through a "back side" bus and the CPU talked to the rest of the system through a "front side" bus.

The logistics of the whole thing made it easier to construct the CPU as follows--solder the CPU and cache into a special printed circuit board with an edge connector and surround it in heat-transfer plates.

#8, Later, PIII abandoned this form factor because as transistor fab got more precise, it was cheaper to just put the cache on-die and put the whole thing in a conventional socket. Interestingly, many of the better PIII-compatible motherboards still used slots, so a lot of computers actually plugged the CPU into a special socketed adapter card. I had a PIII-800 like that.

I'm pleased that slotted CPUs are no longer the thing
