  4. 4. Answer:<br />P2 or P3<br />
  5. 5. 2. What was the first Intel processor to contain external cache?<br />
  6. 6. Answer:<br />The first processor to contain L2 (external) cache was the Intel Pentium Pro.<br />
  7. 7. 3. When is it appropriate to use a Celeron rather than a Pentium 4 in a computer system?<br />
  8. 8. Answer:<br />Have a low end computer<br />
  9. 9. 4. Which is more powerful, the current Celeron or the current Xeon processor?<br />
  10. 10. Answer:<br />XEON because of its high front side buss and higher floating point<br />

  38. 38. 2<br />
  39. 39. 18.) Why is a land socket preferred to a pin socket?<br />
  40. 40. Because when being removed or put in land sockets place equal force over the whole processor.<br />
