New Intel LGA-1851 socket for Arrow Lake has been showcased

Next-generation Intel socket showcased at Embedded World 2024

At Embedded World 2024 the Taiwanese company IBASE has showcased an upcoming Intel LGA-1851 motherboard. This motherboard will be used with Intel Meteor Lake processor for embedded systems, but its CPU socket will also be used with Intel’s next-generation motherboards. has gotten a close look at this new motherboard, and they have confirmed that LGA-1851 is the same size as Intel’s existing LGA-1700 socket. That said, this socket has 151 additional pins and an adjusted CPU locking system. As such, this socket is incompatible with LGA-1700 CPUs, both physically and functionally.

With Intel’s new socket being the same size as its predecessor, all LGA-1700 compatible CPU coolers are likely to support Intel’s new socket. In fact, Arctic Cooling confirmed last year that all of their LGA-1700 CPU coolers are LGA-1851 compatible. This may be true for all LGA-1700 CPU coolers.

Intel will be using LGA-1851 on their upcoming 800-series desktop motherboards. These motherboards will arrive alongside Intel’s Arrow Lake desktop processors later this year. These CPUs will likely arrive as Intel Ultra 200 series processors.
