What CPUs can fit LGA 1151?
LGA 1151 revision 2 supports Coffee Lake CPUs and it’s compatible with 8th and 9th generation CPUs that use the 300 series chipsets from Intel, including H310, B360, Z370, and Z390. Despite it being a revision of the original socket, it’s physically the same and compatible with the first revision.
Is LGA 1151 socket outdated?
No more CPUs based on LGA 1151 socket are going to be manufactured in future. It made sense for the company to discontinue its 9th gen core CPU lineup, since it has already been succeeded by the 10th Gen Comet Lake-S family which also features multi-threading support on all the SKUs.
Which processor socket is the best?
TLDR. Get the right socket for your CPU: You can find great CPUs from either Intel or AMD, but whatever CPU you buy, make sure that your board has the correct socket to support it. The latest mainstream AMD chips use AM4 sockets while current Intel 10th and upcoming 11th Gen Core CPUs work in LGA 1200 sockets.
Is LGA 1151 the same as LGA 1200?
LGA 1200 is an Intel microprocessor compatible socket for Comet Lake (10th gen) and Rocket Lake (11th-gen) desktop CPUs which was released in Q2 2020. LGA 1200 is designed as a replacement for the LGA 1151 (known as Socket H4).
