Pentium 4 LGA775: a couple of details before the announcement
As the announcement of P4 and i925 & i915 draws near, we decided to shed more light on these novelties. So, according to our hardware testers, there are two interesting peculiarities.
First, note the pin layout. If there´s bad contact between socket and pins, the natural heating will with time press them together.
Second, pins are harder than usual, so you will hardly accidentally bend them. Still those strong and inquisitive should know that after several bendings/unbendings pins will naturally break. :)
And another detail, though you may already be aware of it: LGA775 socket is to live until 2007 and is designed for dual-core processors.
