Intel to debut LGA 1160 in 1H 2009

Posted on Friday, October 17 2008 @ 00:52:57 CEST by

FUD Zilla claims Intel will introduce the LGA 1160 socket in the first half of 2009. Next year the chip giant will have as much as four sockets for consumers: LGA1366 for Core i7, LGA775 for Core 2 Duo/Quad, Celeron and Pentium, Socket 437 for Atom and LGA1160 for Lynnfield and Havendale.
Bloomfield or Core i7 is a larger chip due to its integrated memory controller and the return of hyper threading, both of which takes up a fair amount of die space. As Intel doesn’t want to stick with one socket it plans to introduce the LGA 1160 socket which will be known as socket H.

Socket H will support the upcoming mainstream dual and quad core Nehalems including the quad core Lynnfield which is scheduled for a Q3 2009 introduction and Havendale, scheduled for Q1 2010 availability. Two sockets means that LGA 1160, socket H boards will be dramatically cheaper than the ultra overpriced socket B LGA 1366, but we are sure that Intel could have done it all with a single socket.
