Nehalem needs new socket

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Roadmap: It is called LGA1366


It doesn’t really surprise us but Intel will change the socket of the Nehalem at the end of 2008. The new 45 nanometer Nehalem generation processor won’t work in the LGA 775 or server LGA771 socket. It will need a new LGA 1366 socket.

This is simply because Nehalem has memory controller integrated in a CPU, and this CPU will support DDR3 memory only. It will also need a new chipset, so going for Nehalem will be one hell of a change.

Nehalem won't enter the market before Q4 2008, at least that is the desktop plan.
