Both AMD and Intel introduced the first dual-core x86-compatible desktop processors in May 2005. Note: There has been some confusion about Windows and multi-core or Hyper-Threaded processors. Multi-core processors are designed for users who run multiple programs at the same time or who use multithreaded applications, which pretty much describes all users these days. It’s important to realize that multicore processors don’t improve single-task performance much. Llano also had a triple core A6-3500, which would be impossible had they been based upon Bulldozer. Trinity is based upon Bulldozer, Richland is based upon Piledriver and Kaveri is based upon Steamroller. LGA uses gold pads (called lands) on the bottom of the processor to replace the pins used in PGA packages. The release lever on the left raises the load plate out of the way to permit the processor to be placed over the contacts.
Socket LGA 1156 (also known as Socket H) was introduced in September 2009 and was designed to support Intel Core ix-series processors featuring an integrated chipset northbridge, including a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller and optional integrated graphics. Because the processor includes the chipset northbridge, Socket LGA 1156 is designed to interface between a processor and a Platform Controller Hub (PCH), which is the new name used for the southbridge component in supporting 5x series chipsets.
When processors with integrated graphics are used, the Flexible Display Interface carries digital display data from the GPU in the processor to the display interface circuitry in the PCH.
Socket LGA 1366 is designed to interface between a processor and an IOH, which is the new name used for the northbridge component in supporting 5x-series chipsets. Socket LGA 1155 (also known as Socket H2) was introduced in January 2011 to support Intel’s Sandy Bridge (second-generation) Core ix-series processors, which now include Turbo Boost overclocking.
Socket LGA 2011 was introduced in November 2011 to support high-performance versions of Intel’s Sandy Bridge (second-generation) Core ix-series processors (Sandy Bridge-E), which now include Turbo Boost overclocking. Socket LGA 2011 uses a land grid array format, so the pins are on the socket, rather than the processor. Yesterday marked the launch of Intel’s new flagship processor, the Intel Core i7-6700K.
Reading through the release specifications on WCCF Tech your eyes will widen and your jaw will drop, but is Skylake’s enthusiast chip what we’ve been waiting for?
While the Skylake family is based on a newer, thinner and more refined 14nm fabrication process, the results are nothing more than a mild improvement on the previous generation of Broadwell and even Haswell processors. Unlike Broadwell and Haswell which used a LGA1150 socket, the Skylake family will run on the all new LGA1151 socket. When you scratch away at the paint and start comparing Skylake to its predecessors the result starts looking a little something like this. Ultimately the decision rests with you but the wise choice is to wait, especially since Intel alluded to the fact that Kaby Lake will launch sometime next year.

If multiple logical processors are good, having two or more physical processors is a lot better. AMD’s initial entry was the Athlon 64 X2, whereas Intel’s first dual-core processors were the Pentium Extreme Edition 840 and the Pentium D. Windows XP and later Home editions support only one physical CPU, whereas Windows Professional, Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions support two physical CPUs. A multithreaded application can run different parts of the program, known as threads, at the same time in the same address space, sharing code and data.

If you play non-multithreaded games on your PC, it’s likely that you would see little advantage in a multi-core or hyperthreaded CPU. That's why there's no triple core Trinity or Richland: it is impossible to make a triple core Piledriver. Many dual-processor motherboards use the Extended ATX form factor, which supports a motherboard up to 12 inches wide by 13 inches long.
If you are upgrading a system with a replacement or additional processor, you should remove the motherboard from the system before performing the upgrade. You also need to keep the heatsink steady on the chip while attaching the clips, so you should not move, tilt, or slide the heatsink while you attach it. To complete the configuration process, you start the computer, start the BIOS Setup program, and select the correct options for clock multiplier, frequency, voltage, and other settings required by the particular system BIOS in use. It allows for much greater clamping forces via a load plate with a locking lever, with greater stability and improved thermal transfer (better cooling). Socket LGA 1156 uses a land grid array format, so the pins are on the socket, rather than the processor. Depending on the motherboard, the display interface can support DisplayPort, High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), Digital Visual Interface (DVI), or Video Graphics Array (VGA) connectors.
Socket LGA 1366 uses a land grid array format, so the pins are on the socket, rather than the processor. Socket LGA 1155 uses a land grid array format, so the pins are on the socket, rather than the processor. LGA 2011 supports 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes, quad-channel memory addressing, and fully-unlocked processor multipliers.
For those of us with sense and a smaller credit limit you can pick up the Intel Core i5-6600K which was also unveiled. If you’ve upgraded your PC in the last 3 years the chances are good that the answer will be no. If you recently upgraded your system to an X99 motherboard with a LGA2011 socket, your board and processor have no power here. This is good news for the X99 builders looking to update their machines but terrible news for people who will now have to rebuild from scratch.

A multi-core processor, as the name implies, actually contains two or more processor cores in a single processor package. The Extreme Edition 840 was notable for also supporting HT Technology, allowing it to appear as a quad-core processor to the OS. Even though the Home editions support only a single physical CPU, if that chip is a multicore processor with HT Technology, all the physical and virtual cores are supported.
A multithreaded program runs faster on a multicore processor or a processor with HT Technology enabled than on a single-core or non-HT processor. Fortunately, more and more software (including games) is designed to be multithreaded to take advantage of multi-core processors. Intel engineers could point out at you that technically speaking they think the Trinity and Richland quads are actually dual-cores with the AMD version of hyper-threading to them -a more effective version too. Some ATX cases can't handle boards of this size or might not offer adequate cooling or clearance for processors and heatsinks. Also, make sure your existing power supply matches the ATX or SSI standards. There are two reasons to work with the motherboard out of the system for processor upgrades: Processor configurationAvoiding damage to the motherboard Some older motherboards have jumpers that control both the CPU speed and the voltage supplied to it. Most heatsinks have a preapplied thermal pad (also known as a phase-change pad); to prepare this type of heatsink, you remove the protective tape before installing the heatsink.
You need to be sure to save the changes when exiting the BIOS Setup program. Some systems, particularly those that use rack-mounted form factors or blade-based components, use passive heatsinks and cooling ducts instead of heatsinks with integrated fans to cool the processor(s).

Socket LGA 775, unlike earlier Intel processor sockets, uses a land grid array format, so the pins are on the socket, rather than the processor.
The first LGA processors were the Pentium II and Celeron processors in 1997; in those processors, an LGA chip was soldered on the Slot-1 cartridge. Socket LGA 1155 uses the same cover plate as Socket 1156, but is not interchangeable with it. You will also need to upgrade your old DDR3 RAM for faster DDR4 RAM and while you’re at it you may as well look at getting a PCI-e SSD. Other advertising partners (such as AdClick Africa) may also drop a cookie on your machine.
In this case, it will be made very clear in the T&Cs for that compo that this will happen. From outward appearances, it still looks like a single processor (and is considered as such for Windows licensing purposes), but inside there can be two, three, four, or even more processor cores.
These processors combined 64-bit instruction capability with dual internal cores—essentially two processors in a single package. For example, if you have a system with a quad-core processor supporting HT Technology, Windows Home editions will see it as eight processors, and all of them will be supported. The program is broken into multiple threads, all of which can be divided among the available CPU cores. If these are set incorrectly, the system might not operate at all, might operate erratically, or might even damage the CPU. For heatsinks that don't include a thermal pad, you need to put a dab of heatsink thermal transfer compound (normally a white-colored grease; some vendors of high-performance heatsinks use a silver-based compound such as Arctic Silver instead) on the CPU before installing the heatsink.
When installing or upgrading processors in such systems, you need to be sure to remove the cooling duct before attempting to remove the existing processor. LGA is a recycled version of what was previously called leadless chip carrier (LCC) packaging.
Socket LGA 1155 is also used by Intel’s Ivy Bridge (third-generation) Core ix-series processors.
A multi-core processor provides virtually all the advantages of having multiple separate physical processors, all at a much lower cost. These chips were the start of the multicore revolution, which has continued by adding more cores along with additional extensions to the instruction set. If you are installing an additional processor, you should contact the vendor to determine whether you need to install an additional cooling duct for the second processor. Some multiprocessor servers use terminator boards (essentially a processor cartridge with special circuits inside instead of a processor) to fill empty processor slots on a multiprocessor motherboard. This was used way back on the 286 processor in 1984, and it had gold lands around the edge only. Intel introduced the first quad-core processors in November 2006, called the Core 2 Extreme QX and Core 2 Quad.
79. With some processors, especially those that use Socket 370 or Socket A (Socket 462), you need to use a great deal of force to clip the heatsink to the socket or release the heatsink from the socket.
If the CPU has an active heatsink (with a fan), you need to plug the fan power connector in to one of the fan connectors supplied on the motherboard (see Figure 2.45).
With these servers, you need to remove the terminator board before attempting to install a new processor.
AMD subsequently introduced its first quad-core desktop PC processor in November 2007, called the Phenom.
The amount of force required can damage the motherboard if the motherboard is not removed from the system and placed on a surface that supports the processor socket area of the motherboard. Newer processors use different heatsink installation methods that require less force. To install a processor and heatsink, you can use one of the procedures described in the following sections, depending on your processor type.
