FUD Zilla reports Intel's upcoming 32nm Sandy Bridge will use the H2 socket, which is not compatible with current motherboards.
We have reported previously that Sandy Bridge, the next generation 32nm hybrid-monolithic CPU/GPU processor supports Intel's LGA 1155 socket. Today, however, we are able to confirm that this socket is slightly different than LGA 1156 Socket H1. In perspective, Socket LGA1156, or H1, is the socket of choice for all Core 2010 processors - Lynnfield, Clarkdale and second-generation Nehalem.
Intel's new socket, in contrast, is designed specifically for Sandy Bridge CPUs and it is simply called H2. In its future plans, Intel sees this socket as a separate entity from LGA 1156 socket H1. The new socket H2 is also mentioned as LGA 1155, and the apparent absence of a single pin might make all the difference.
