LGA-1700 : the next Intel socket shows itself in pictures !

LGA-1700 : the next Intel socket shows itself in pictures !

With Alder Lake-S, Intel will introduce a new series of processors, new chipsets, and a new socket. However, if we knew that the socket would change, we had no picture. This is now done since, via the forum BilibiliWe can now put our eyes on the next LGA-1700 of the blues!

LGA-1700 : the new Intel socket shows itself in picture !


Socket Intel LGA-1700

If the dimensions of this new socket were known, we still did not know what it would look like. For the blow, we find something rectangular and not square: 37.5 x 45 mm. Moreover, it does not seem to occupy more space on the motherboard. Intel seems to have reduced the size of the locking mechanism as much as possible. Nevertheless, this forces cooling manufacturers to review their mounting systems and some have already communicated on this subject.

As you can see on the picture, the socket is marked LGA17xx/LGA-18xx. VideoCardz suggests that there could well be a number of unused pins, a hundred in this case. If this is the case, what would be the use? Server version? Next generation? The question remains.

Of course, this socket 1700 will host the next Alder Lake-S CPUs, but also the Raptor Lake-S that will come after. However, nothing has been said yet about Meteor Lake-S, the next generation.

Finally, a larger socket means a larger IHS and therefore more surface area to be covered by our cooling systems. If we’re not too worried about the higher-end models, what about the more entry-level solutions? We are thinking in particular of the typical fans Freezer 34 which already did not fully cover the capsule of a Ryzen 7 1700X. Nevertheless, as long as the heatpipes pass over the die(s), everything is fine.
