Pictures of the socket 1155 and others

Core i5: First pictures of the sockets LGA 1155 and 1156 [Top article of February 2009]

The Core i5 is still far away. But there are already pictures of the new sockets LGA 1155, 1156 and 1567 available.
2009 is coming to an end and PC Games Hardware takes a look at the past year. What caught the attention of our users and the people on the web? To answer this question we checked our statistics and searched for the most popular articles of the year. Today we want to reveal the most popular article of February 2009.

Original article:
Intel's Core i5 will have a different socket than the Core i7.

Quite soon Intel's currently fastest processor, the Core i7 965, will be replaced by a newer model, the Core i7 975 with 3.33 GHz. But the Core i5 devices for the mainstream market are probably more interesting. For the first time in Intel's history one of their processors could have an integrated graphics core. Currently rumors expect that Intel will release those processors in summer 2009. Lynnfield and Heavendale will be based on the sockets LGA 1155 and 1156. Furthermore there is the socket LGA 1567 for Xeon processors. The sockets can be found at Intel's Design Development Tool website.

Because some stupid advertisers hammered "everything but integrated memory controller ****s" into the customers brains - and this means, that differend performance segments cannot be addressed by different chipsets/motherboards in the future, but have to include diffent CPUs and different interconnection as well.
btw:
The news, you are commenting, is stone old. "LGA 1155" was, as "LGA 1160", "1060", "1066", "750", "1166" (and probably some others) a false rumor created by some people, who just wouldn't let "you got no damn clue, so shut up" come into their way.
Only LGA1156 and LGA1366 are in the market now - an actually that's not realy more, then with the core2 plattform, as LGA1366 serves the workstation/dual-CPU-server-market as well, that up to now had it's own (LGA771) socket. So Intel just shifted the border between their consumer and there workstation socket, so that now enthusiast/high-end gaming-machines share their plattform with high-end workstations (instead off lowest-end-200$-computers. somehow, this doesn't seem to be completely illogical)

too many sockets, why did intel abandon the great 1 socket system they had with 775?

Now we are going to have a headache of motherboards and cpu's.... dont like it at all.
