Methinks, It is one big piece but, twice the size, right? But rather than fuck around with changing the cpu socket, they just laid two together. Hence the line in the middle making it "look" like two Cpu's Gorilla glued together.

Look closely at the pic. it is not two of the same, mirrored.

Lol my point, LGA should be a standard by now but AMD still wants to use crap intel used for Pentium 1.
you mean Socket 478 used in the Northwood Pentium 4 era. ;)

Name the benefits of LGA vs PGA. I'll wait.

Later than that. Mobile chips were PGA right up until they went BGA.

...wheres the pic of the amd exec making fun of kentsfield because it was two cpus slapped on the same die?

this looks like two cpus slapped together...
Over 10 years ago. How many CEO's ago was that for AMD? Different company today.

You should have read the thread, Holmes.
Biggest issue with LGA is the contact surface and how much power it can handle as pins get smaller, in a compressed pin and socket arrangement the contact area is much higher VS pins touching a surface.

That would be the opposite that is a benefit of PGA over LGA... Holmes.
It's easier to fit more contacts in LGA and if the CPU costs more than the motherboard, a broken pin means replacing the cheaper component. Come on, you of all people should know this stuff and shouldn't need someone to validate it for you. I know that you know better. :p

Also, that was touched upon earlier as well.

More like Intel doesn't have to replace the motherboard the manufacturer does. So more money for Intel.
