Intel Socket Types

This discussion begins referencing previous component topics discussed such as grid arrays and cartridges then we move to examining CPU socket types and the two major manufacturers focused on the A+ exam, identified as Intel and AMD. We start with Intel type sockets examine the LGA 775, which stands for land grid array and means the pins are physically located on the socket itself.  You’ll then see a demonstration of what it looks like and it’s placement on the motherboard, and some of the hazards associated with it.  You’ll learn what the number 775 means and what types of computers use which socket types, its release date and contrast them against the LGA 1366, 1156, and 1555 sockets.
