    What on earth is it?

    if we had lga 1156 replaced with 1155 now

    and lga 1366 will be replaced by lga 2011

    where on earth does that leave this supposed lga 1356 socket? I only ask as I have been scouring the internet searching for answer, mainly because some fool on youtube bought it up proclaiming that lga 1356 will supersead lga 1366 (his logic being that lga 1156 to 1155, so one less pin = he must be right) fool, so I'm after some clarification, anyone got a clue?

    Isn't it supposed to be a server socket? Thought I'd read that somewhere. Could (and probably am) completely wrong though :hehe:

    Thats what I thought it might be, from some graphs I saw floating about the chips seem to have a very low power tdp, around the same as sandy bridge 95w or something, but who knows :S

    Possibly a mobile socket then, as it wont need all of the pins that way.

    as far as i know 1356 is meant to be a single and dual socket Xeon workstation with triple channel memory, 2011 is the enthusiast replacement for 1366, like i said 'as far as i know'

    i presume 1356 is socket B2? although it is possible that 1356 has been scrapped altogether
