Futurology: Haswell-EP CPU will use a new socket LGA 2011

Futurology: Haswell-EP CPU will use a new socket LGA 2011

We know that is working hard on future for servers and supercomputers: its future codenamed Haswell-EP , which will have up to 14 cores and 35MB of L3, and along with your cGPU Xeon Phi constitute a winning combination (by Intel) to the GPU-accelerated computing .

From SemiAccurate report that Haswell-EP microprocessors use a new socket LGA, which although it has 2011 pins as the current lga 2011 socket used by microprocessors Sandy Bridge-EP/E, will be physically and electrically incompatible with it, which will not be possible to update existing platforms to future LGA 2011 platform LGA 2011 (LGA 2011 + temporarily call it).

Haswell-EP is likely to continue using the QPI bus, DDR3 memory controller quad-channel, and also is rumored to exceed their TDP 150W .
