Intel LGA1700 socket for Alder Lake-S CPUs

Just today we reported on a new leak from Igor’sLAB featuring confidential information on Intel LGA1700 socket, only to see the actual socket one in the first photos hours later. 

The socket went on sale on Chinese Taobao, as spotted by @9550pro. It is now listed at 35 RMB which is 5.4 USD. The offers features the full socket, including the mounting mechanism for the new CPU series. It’s worth noting that this listing appears to be the actual source of the previous leak on the LGA-18XX socket.

Sockets sold separately are often used for repairs. A typical consumer should find no use for this socket, unless he has experience with socket replacement.

This is actually the first time we get to see LGA1700 socket for Intel Alder Lake-S processor series (aka 12th Gen Core) which are set to launch by the end of this year. The new CPUs will no longer be square, but rectangular, which can easily be seein in the photos.
