    Intel is planning to launch its newest line of enterprise-grade Pentium processors. A little later this year, Intel will launch Xeon E5-4600 processors which are built in the LGA2011 package, and support quad-socket servers, followed by Xeon E5-2400, which will be built in the new LGA1356 package. Designed for 2-socket servers, LGA1356 is a new package that's roughly as big as LGA1366, but has an entirely different pin layout. It retains the 2-chip (processor+PCH) system layout, and has pins for a triple-channel DDR3 memory controller, 24 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes, and one QuickPath Interconnect link (compared to two links on the LGA2011), which lets the processor talk to its only neighbour.

    The LGA1356 chips slated for a little later this year include the Pentium 1403 and Pentium 1407. The Pentium 1403 is clocked at 2.60 GHz, and the Pentium 1407 at 2.80 GHz. Both chips are dual-core, capable of single-socket operation only, but retain triple-channel DDR3 and 24 PCI-Express lanes support. Both chips pack 5 MB of L3 cache. Features such as HyperThreading, vPro, and Turbo Boost might not make it to these chips' feature-set. This Intel's second round of enterprise-grade Pentium processors in recent times.

    New sockets every now and then in the enterprise segment doesn't matter. Nobody upgrades CPUs in the enterprise market, they upgrade entire servers.

    And? Judging by your system spec's you're running a P45, which means you've successfully bypassed LGA 1366, LGA 1156, LGA 2011 and LGA 1155 (and LGA 1248 and LGA 1537 if we're including enterprise- and since you're commenting on an multi-socket system we may as well). I'm going out on a limb and saying that there could well be others like yourself who may not feel the need to buy every shiny new thing that happens along....Having a choice to do so, however...

    AMD has had pretty much the same socket for six years now. I'd rather buy from a company that replaced its socket every 18 months than buy from a company still using 6 year old technology.

    Even that is a bit misleading. Try plugging an FX (BD variety) into virtually anything 790 chipset and earlier. Sweet being able to use a six-year-old socket...not so sweet if you've got to use a 6+ year old architecture CPU.

    Ya considering the 700 series motherboards have to be atleast DDR3 capable or you screw up the chip

    How about some comprehension...
    (Bold and italics added to facilitate understanding of a simple compound sentence)

    Feel free to start the Zambezi/Valencia/Interlagos lecture- I promise I'll be right back.

    So what? Single socket implies (by Red Machine) continuity. AM3/3+ might be as old as the hills- doesn't mean it's compatible with every CPU using AM3/3+
    Go to the head of the class in remedial fanboyism.

    Because I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm planning to get a Z77 mobo and a 2700K sometime in the next few months.

    If I did my math right Intel has had 10-12 sockets in the last 6 years(includes server, mobile, etc.)

    Meanwhile, AMD over the same time period...AM2/2+, AMD3/3+, F/F+, C32, G34, FM1 (one hit wonder), S1, FM2 (near introduction), and likely supplemented by FS1 in the near future.

    You best be trolling. Are you going to make someone pull out Q6600 VS FX-8150 benchmarks just to shut you up?

    Without Hyper-threading that is a huge waste of memory bandwidth.
