Intel Socket 771 for Xeon processors

Posted on Thursday, February 23 2006 @ 22:23:11 CET by

DailyTech has a picture of the Socket 771, a replacement for Intel's current Socket 603/604 for Xeon server processors.

This new Socket uses a Land Grid Array (LGA), just like Socket 775 on desktop motherboards.
LGA sockets are slightly more expensive to manufacture over traditional pin sockets, but the cost is easily recouped due to the fact that the CPUs do not need expensive pins that are easily mangled.

AMD's future Opteron socket, Socket 1207, is also set to use an LGA interface.
