LGA is not new, whether it has more pins or not, still LGA.
That's like saying a new car design is not whether it has more seats or not because it's still a car.

Again remind me again why lga is better than pga?
LGAs tend to have higher pin densities than PGAs. Also convenient for CPU makers to shift responsibility for potential mechanical issues onto socket makers.

FWIW my new build took over a month to finalize because mobo came with bent pins. It was actually repaired - socket was apparently swapped according to RMA ticket.

Pray the RMA guy doesnt bother to check socket, as that will 99% chance be denied - user error I think,

For pins on socket vs pins on cpu, I personally prefer in socket, but given we now seeing motherboards commonly cost more than cpu's maybe my view will change. o_O

Benchmark Scores Are in the benchmark section
Mother board rma always requires high resolution images of the socket
So does cpu rma and both sides of the cpu.

FWIW my new build took over a month to finalize because mobo came with bent pins. It was actually repaired - socket was apparently swapped according to RMA ticket.

seeing this happen with strix e's lately, took photo's of one of them.

single pin on the outer edge, whether or not this a machining error, or occured when the cover itself was placed is irrelevant, it'll still get put on the customer.
with a pin density so great, its impossible for the end user to bend a single pin in this way without jewelers tools or a needle.

Benchmark Scores it sucks even more less now ;)
LGA with their bendy AF socket pins are a bad idea they should use micro bump instead

I came across this the other day & thought it might be a potential solution to LGA issues with 12th gen
