Intel’s forthcoming LGA 1700 / LGA 1800 socket for 12th Gen Alder Lake and 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs has surfaced in new images, according to current sources. As previously stated, this socket will be available on both the new 600-series chipset boards and the next-generation 700-series motherboards.
The Intel Z690 chipset, which will be found on the high-end 600-series motherboard range, was recently photographed for the first time. The Intel LGA 1700 / 1800 socket contains more than 1700 pins, and since Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs will have 1700 gold contact pads, future CPUs that are compatible with the socket are likely to have even more contacts, which is why the ’15R1′ has an additional 100 pins allocated for them.
According to rumors, Intel’s 12th Generation Alder Lake and 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors will support the LGA 1700 / 1800 socket, whereas Intel’s future 14th Generation Meteor Lake processors will debut a new socket owing to a new chipset architecture.
Intel’s Alder Lake desktop CPUs will be available in a 37.545.0mm package and will support the ‘V0′ socket, also known as LGA 1700. CPU coolers will need to be properly mounted over the CPU, and cooler manufacturers will need to ship new and refreshed mounting brackets for Intel Alder Lake and LGA 1700 support.
The following are the features of motherboards using 600-series chipsets:
- eDP / 4DDI (DP, HDMI) Display Capabilities
- 2-Channel (Up To DDR5-4800 / Up To DDR4-3200) Memory Support
- x16 PCIe 5.0 / x4 PCIe 4.0 Lanes (CPU)
- PCIe Express 4.0 & PCIe Express 3.0 Support (600-Series Chipset)
- 6 x SATA 3.0 (6 Gbps) Ports
- Up To 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Ports
- Up To 10x USB 3.2 Gen 2×1 Ports
- Up To 10x USB 3.2 Gen 1×1 Ports
- 16 USB 2.0 Ports
- Integrated WiFi 6E/7 AX211 (CNVio) with Gig+
- Discrete Thunderbolt 4 (USB 4 Compliant)
- USB3 (20G) / USB3 (10G) / USB3 (5G) / USB 2.0
