"The new socket has had numerous problems with heat dissipation, and bent pins in motherboards." I'm not sure if this is fully true, I have never experienced or read anything about heat dissipation issues, of what i've read the problems are with the Prescott core and not with the interface... this should be looked into. The heat dissipation issue on the Prescott core is not related to the new LGA 775 Socket but rather it is a deficiency of the Netburst architecture on which the Prescott core was based. The heat and perfomance issues of the Netburst architecture, which was supposed to scale all the way up to 10 GHZ, caused Intel much grief and competition problems to such a degree that it forced Intel to introduce a brand new architectute, dubed Core. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Berat556 (talkcontribs)


"LGA is less expensive to produce than both PGA and the similar ball grid array (BGA) interfaces."

i can imagine that this may be true for the chip alone but i can't imagine its true if you include the cost of the socket (which bga avoids) can anyone clarify? Plugwash 00:01, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Someone forgot to include the Socket 771, used on Xeon servers, even though it is widely used. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Berat556 (talkcontribs)

Here's a picture of a mobo with an LGA socket, although it could be much better. This photo does not clearly show the pins on the motherboard, nor does it show a processor with LGA. If anybody has an LGA cpu/mobo then clearer, higher resolution photos are welcome.--TexasDex 20:17, 31 March 2007 (UTC)


An image of the bottom of an LGA CPU or a diagram of lands and contacts might help...--Eddie 19:52, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Similar to one type of 80286[edit]

One type of the 80286 CPU, most commonly 12 Mhz, used a single row of contact pads on all four edges. The chip was held against spring loaded contacts by a clip and a small heat sink. It was a very compact package compared to any other used for that CPU. I'd say that CLCC is a direct ancestor of the LGA. Bizzybody (talk) 04:00, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Amazingly x86 centric[edit]

This article is x86 centric to a disturbingly high degree. Is there any way to remedy this? IBM and Sun has been using LGAs in their high-end processors since the last 10 years or so; UltraSparc II, RS64-IV, POWER4, z900 and so forth… -- Henriok (talk) 22:26, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

LGA4 vs LGA6 vs LGA8 vs LGA10[edit]

Some Intel CPUs come in both LGA6 and LGA8 packages -- and I've been unable to discover what the difference is. Intel literature also mentions LGA4 and LGA10. A description of how these packages differ would be a useful addition to the article. Does anyone know? NCdave (talk) 03:39, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
