+ - Next gen Intel CPUs move to yet another socket->

Submitted by mr_sifter
mr_sifter (1000807) writes "And this time, the socket is 1-pin different to the current LGA1156 socket Core i3, i5 and some i7s use. According to a leaked roadmap, next year we'll be saying hello to LGA1155. Sandy Bridge CPUs will be based on the current 32nm, second generation High-k metal gate manufacturing process. All LGA1155 CPUs will have integrated graphics built into the core instead of a separate chip. This is an upgrade from the current IGP, PCI Express controller and memory controller in Clarkdale CPUs that is manufactured on the older 45nm process in a separate die (but still slapped together the same package). This should improve performance, as all the controllers will be in one die, like existing LGA1366 CPUs."
