Our colleagues over The Inquirer web-site today published a picture of an Intel’s LGA processor. Probably the part is a mechanical sample of the Tejas and Prescott CPUs for Socket T that is to come next year.

Socket T will not be an ordinary CPU socket, but will utilise new land grid array (LGA) connector type which permits direct electrical connection between a module substrate and a mainboard. It is bit complex type of socketing, but it allows making CPUs with higher density of pins keeping the costs of such devices at levels suitable for mainstream computing.

Take a look at the example of LGA sockets from IBM and Intel. Although Intel’s part looks to be less complex, it will not be so easy to install a new CPU into the Socket T.

New LGA Socket T will be found on mainboards powered by Intel’s Grantsdale chipset that will come next year. The core-logic will support dual-channel DDR-II SDRAM memory and PCI-Express interconnection. Intel will offer Prescott and Tejas processors for the new Socket T design.

More information about Grantsdale platform, Prescott and Tejas processors is available in the news-stories noted below.
