Socket: PPGA478 vs. PGA478 vs. P

What, exactly, is the difference in these? For example, can a T5450 be replaced with a T8300?
If not, why? What are the differences? Sorry if this is a dumb question, obviously they're two different socket types, but I'm trying to learn everything I can from asking..

And what's the difference between a PPGA478 and socket P? And please explain in "stupid"-speak... thanks!

  1. thanks for the quick reply, rolli, but even on the socket 479 page, it's got core 2 duo's listed under both socket 479 & socket p. I just need someone to maybe explain the differences between the PGA478 and PPGA478..and socket P.
