The future Intel LGA1700 socket detailed

Igor Wallosek, revealed several information about the next socket LGA1700 that we will find in a few weeks on the series “Alder Lake-S”.


The first information confirms the shape of the socket and therefore the CPU. The rectangular shape is thus confirmed. We also have the exact dimensions of the socket. We also notice that the thickness of the couple socket + CPU changes between the LGA 1200 socket and the future LGA1700. There is also the question of the spacing of the inking points of the cooling system, which suggests that many current models will not be compatible. LGA1700 details

In the last few hours, a leaked photo has revealed a socket cover with the inscription LGA 1700/1800. An image that has generated a lot of speculation with a socket change much faster than most observers imagined.

For the moment, we have certainties about Alder Lake-S and its successor Raptor Lake which will use the same socket LGA1700. But this leak might hint at Meteor Lake, Intel’s first 7nm architecture that will succeed Raptor Lake and might not be on the same socket. This possibility would go against the many leaks mentioning the fact that Intel might want to keep the LGA1700 socket for at least three generations. Another possibility remains that this socket LGA-18XX could be intended for a different series such as the Xeon or the return of a series HPC to put in front of Threadripper. Finally, the “Raphael” series of AMD based on Zen4 must also use a LGA socket, a priori a LGA-1718. It could simply be that this socket cache mentions the widest possible coverage in order to standardize this “accessory” if the formats of the sockets get closer…
