We have known the current shape of Intel processors for many years. As we know, in recent years, the Blues have been pursuing a very conservative policy and, in fact, since the Skylake generation, we have not seen any major changes in the construction of the chips, despite the fact that the last chips are based on the “new” LGA 1200 socket. It is not a revolution in relation to the LGA 1151, therefore we are still waiting for a new design. Soon, however, new Alder Lake processors will debut, which, according to the leaks so far, will be exactly 7.5 mm higher than their predecessors. So as you can deduce, the stand will also be new. A photo has just appeared on the Bilibili website, in which we can see the LGA 1700 and LGA 1200. The differences do not have to be looked for long.
The new LGA 1700 stand will be higher than LGA 1200 by 7.5 mm. Interestingly, despite the greater number of pins, the new socket does not need to take up more space on the motherboard – it seems Intel has managed to reduce the latch system.
LGA1700 socket for Intel Alder Lake chips poses in photos and diagrams. The new stand has no secrets for us
Both sockets are the same wide (37.5 mm), but the new stand will be higher by the mentioned 7.5 mm. As you can see in the photo above, it is coded 15R1. Interestingly, despite the greater number of pins, the new socket does not need to take up more space on the motherboard, as it looks like Intel has managed to reduce the latch system. It’s worth noting that we’ve mentioned the LGA 18XX socket again, which could suggest that the socket may already have over 100 unused pins for next-gen LGA processors with over 1,800 pins.
Noctua, be quiet! and Arctic are manufacturers who will provide mounting elements for the Intel LGA 1700 stand for free
As you can see on the above border, the differences will not only concern the dimensions of the socket. The new stand will require new coolers, although some companies have already expressed a wish to ship the appropriate mounting kits for existing cooling kits free of charge. As we know, on the LGA 1700 socket we will install not only the upcoming Intel Alder Lake processors, but also the next generation systems, i.e. Meteor Lake.
