The new processor socket from Intel seems to have been photographed on Bilibili. The Intel LGA1700 socket is intended to interface with at least Alder Lake and subsequent Raptor Lake processors.
The new socket is a just 7.5 millimeters longer than the previous LGA1200 socket. However, because the clamping system is somewhat smaller, LGA1700 does not immediately take up more space on the motherboard.
Also, the socket seems to be marked as LGA-17XX/ LGA-18XX, possibly referring to a hundred optional contact points. Depending on the
generation of the processor (Alder Lake, Raptor Lake or possibly even Meteor Lake) different amounts of pins may or may not be activated. could be.
It was previously clear that the LGA1700 socket also requires different mounting for existing processor coolers. In addition to the longer shape, the total package is slightly less high. Several cooler manufacturers have already announced that they will make LGA1700 brackets available; some of them offer the brackets free of charge to existing customers. It is still unclear whether the leaked photo comes from a consumer motherboard or a server alternative. What is certain is that this motherboard uses a new Intel chipset, presumably the upcoming 600 series. After all, motherboard manufacturers are already leaking details about the new Intel motherboards .
