Procesorji Intel Coffee Lake imajo drugačno konfiguracijo pin kot prejšnja generacija



Intel is set to release its newest generation of processors, known as code name Coffee Lake in just a few days. Recent controversy has focused around the inability of newer processors to be used with motherboards supporting the previous generation CPUs. Intel has released data sheets for Coffee Lake CPUs, and images of the socket's layout support Intel's statement that Coffee Lake will indeed need a new socket design. Specifically, there are more pins responsible for delivering the main power for the CPU cores, known as VCC pins, with Coffee Lake motherboards sporting 146 VCC pins illustrated in the first image below, compared to Kaby Lake and Skylake's 128 illustrated in the second image.

S temi zatiči, ki so odgovorni za dovajanje energije v jedra CPU, lahko to kaže na to, da so matične plošče prejšnje generacije omogočile manjše delovanje, kot je mogoče pri večjem številu jedrnih procesorjev Coffee Lake. Ne glede na razlog, vsekakor potrjuje, da so procesorji Coffee Lake strojno nezdružljivi s matičnimi ploščami prejšnje generacije in ne zgolj programska oprema ali zaklepanje na ravni BIOS-a.
