Socket 5. I still have an old NEC Ready 7022 around here somewhere, I upgraded it from a 75 mHz CPU to it's max speed of 100 mHz. Now you can buy Arduino-style microprocessors that run faster.

Sometimes the age doesn't really make too much difference. The NVIDIA hybrid chip in this laptop is faster than the integrated Intel Graphics in a laptop that's 10 years younger. I feel the difference when I switch between the two.

So the France server might actually be as slow as something... more
