Intel to keep using Socket 1150 until at least 2014

Posted on Monday, March 05 2012 @ 21:44:34 CET by


FUD Zilla reports Intel plans to stick to Socket 115 for the whole of 2013 and 2014, and probably even a small part of 2015.
This is a desktop socket compatible with Lynx Point chipset, something that comes up next year with Haswell platform and the socket of choice is called LGA 1150. Intel is about to launch its Ivy Bridge 22nm processors and 7 series chipset in April, and they are using the LGA 1155 socket, the same as 6 series chipset from Sandy Bridge.

There is at least two year expiry date with Intel sockets with an expectation that 7-series chipsets bring some new features that are absent from Ivy Bridge/6-series chipset combination. Just to set the record straight, Ivy Bridge desktop and 6-series chipset will work.
