Intel to Continue Shipping LGA 775 CPUs in 2012

Even though Intel has retired most of its processors using the LGA 755 socket in order to make room in its lineup for newer Sandy Bridge CPUs, the chip maker will still continue to ship such parts throughout the next year.

According to Fudzilla, Intel’s LGA 775 lineup will include at least a dozen processors that use this socket, including the 1.8GHz single-core Celeron 430, which was introduced in the second quarter of 2007 and is based on the now ancient Yonah-1024 architecture.

Furthermore, Intel will continue to ship this CPU into all of its 65nm glory at least until Q3 2012.

Other chips that will also be shipping in the third quarter of 2012 are the Pentium E6800, E6700, and E5800 as well as Celeron E3500 and E3400, all based on the Wolfdale-3M architecture and manufactured using the 45nm node.

The LGA 775 socket (also known as Socket T) is one of Intel's longest lived sockets as it was introduced in 2004 together with the company's Prescott-based Pentium 4 processors.

Throughout its life, the socket has housed a wide series of processor architectures, ranging from the initial Pentium 4 Prescott to the high-end Core 2 Quad processors based on the Penryn and Wolfdale cores.

This socket was also used by the Conroe-based processors, the architecture that managed to bring Intel's performance crown back from AMD in 2006.

One they will be finally retired, Intel’s LGA 775 processors are expected to be replaced by new parts based on the company’s recent Sandy Bridge architecture that already includes an impressive number of CPUs ranging from the high-performance Core parts to the Celeron line.

The Sandy Bridge architecture is also used by the more recent mobile Intel processors and by a series of CPUs for embedded applications.
