Intel Sandy Bridge for desktops to use LGA1155

Posted on Monday, March 01 2010 @ 18:23:21 CET by

FUD Zilla heard Intel's desktop Sandy Bridge processors will use the LGA1155 socket:
The name of the Sandy Bridge desktop socket, for now, is LGA1155 and we are not sure if its pin compatible with Intel's last socket LGA 1156 Core 2010 based CPUs. Even if it is, Sandy Bridge dual and quad cores should not work in current LGA 1156 pin 5 series chipset based motherboards simple as Sandy Bridge needs a 6-series chipset.

This chipset seems to be the same for mobile, server and desktop is codenamed Cougar Point and among many nice things gets you the SATA 3 at 6Gbps for the next generation SSD and HDD drives.
