Slot A


The physical and electrical specification for the edge-connector used by AMD's Athlon processor.

The connector allows for a higher bus rate than Socket 7 or Super 7. Slot A motherboards use Compaq's EV6 bus protocol. Slot A is mechanically compatible but electrically incompatible with Intel's Slot 1.
