Intel will release the tenth-generation desktop Core processor, code-named Comet Lake-S, in the first half of next year, or the 14nm process, up to 10 core 20 threads, interface replacement for LGA1200, need to be paired with Z490, B460, H410 and other new motherboards. These are basically nailed down.
Today, the detailed CAD engineering dimensions of the LGA1200 (also known as The Socket H5) were revealed online, and compared with the current LGA1151 (also known as Socket H4), it was found that the pin layout did change, but the good news is that the overall size of the interface, mounting hole position has not changed, The current LGA115x series of radiators are compatible with direct use, including LGA1151, LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156.
On LGA1200, Lower LGA1151
According to the illustration, the LGA1200 interface has slightly adjusted the overall layout in addition to adding five contacts/pins. The total length of the left and right length remains unchanged at 61.02 mm, but the middle capacitor area is divided, the left and right length is changed to 26.11 mm, 34.91 mm, LGA1151 is 25.81 mm, 35.21 mm, equal to the new interface midpoint moved 0.3 mm to the right.
The upper and lower width, the split is completely unchanged, the midpoint on both sides are 15.96 mm, 18.2878 mm, the overall width is naturally equivalent to 34.2478 mm.
Such adjustments, of course, also make the two interfaces incompatible, there will be no motherboard and processor interjection problem.
As for the process architecture unchanged, specifications change is not very large circumstances, Intel suddenly change interface, it is not yet known, is likely to be prepared for the subsequent new platform, because there is a similar phenomenon on the server, the next generation Of Copper Lake is also the process architecture unchanged, specifications upgrade on the changed interface, However, it remains compatible with the 10nm Ice Lake at the back.
