The base 479 is the processor socket for Intel's mobile processors, the Pentium M series and Celeron M based on the Banias and Dothan. Although always ungesockelt, also use VIA's C7 and C8 processors socket 479 -pin infrastructure, but with its own VIA V4 bus protocol. Thus, these are incompatible with Intel's AGTL chipsets. VIA developed the VIA Eden NanoBGA2 a package based on the Socket 479 which is also used in the VIA C7 and VIA CPUs C8. With the introduction of Intel Core processors Socket 479 was replaced by the M base.
The base 479 has, despite its name similarity to its counterpart for desktop CPUs (Socket 478) a significantly different pin assignment on, so it is not electrically compatible with Socket 478 processors. However, there is a suitable adapter kits that allow the operation of mobile processors (Intel Pentium M or Celeron M) in suitable socket 478 motherboards. Also, there are Pentium -M enclosure with 478 pins. The arrangement of the pins is however designed so that they can not be used in case a socket as shown below base 478.
Socket for desktops: Socket 1 | base 2 | Sockets 3 | 4 Socket | Socket 5 | 6 Socket | Socket 7 | Slot 1 | Socket 370 | Socket 423 | Socket 441 | Socket 478 | Socket 486 | Socket 775 | Socket 1150 | Sockets 1155 | socket 1156 | socket 1366 | socket 2011
Socket for Mobile Devices: Socket 441 | Socket 479 | Socket M | Socket P
