Default New processors to come without pins?

I read that Intel is no longer putting pins on their new models of processors; is that right? AMD will still be doing it for AM2/AM3 though. I hope AMD realise that pins are OUT!

I just spent half an hour fixing the bent pins on my old Athlon 3200+. I slid a sewing needle between the rows, and levered the bent pins back up, so I could progress to the old credit-card technique. Worked pretty well, but was a lot of fiddling before I thought of the sewing needle. One tip I read was to lasso each pin with dental floss(!); very fustrating... I will try to insert it later. That processor is cheap now, in any case but I dream of a pinless society where everyone walks free of fear of bent pins.

Not really breaking news, Intel hasnt used them in awhile. AMD doesnt on some of their server processor. Really doesnt matter either way to me.

Bent pins are nothing to worry about as long as they don't break and they still fit in the socket.

Ever since LGA775 intel processors don't have pins on the CPU, but rather they are on the motherboard, and can still be bent.

I guess that the socket is more easily replaced? Or is it not replaceable at all? Otherwise, I don't see the advantage to taking them off the CPU...

The pins are more protected from damage on a motherboard than if they are on the processor. Motherboards that have the pins on the board are called Land Grid Array (abbreviated LGA).

Socket F in AMD uses Land Grid Array.

AMD keeps the pins on the processor for backwards compatibility with older processors.

so does that mean that when AMD releases a new socket they will use an LGA-style setup?

Possibly, but probably not. They probably will keep pins for a while to keep some form of backwards compatibility.

Intel is using pins on all of their new mobile i3, i5, and i7 CPU's.

Pins on the CPU are easier to fix than bent pins in a socket, BUT pins are less likely to get bent in a socket than on a CPU. It's really 50/50 pick your poison kinda thing, doesn't matter.

Ive had a good few 775 boards arrive with pre existing socket damage and its a pain.
*LOTES GRRRRRRR*

But there are advantages to an lga socket like removing cooling apparatus for example. The amount of people bending cpu pins by ripping the cpu off along with the heat sink is appalling. ( No I never )

It's all null and void imo. No real advantages either way.
