New retention mechanism
AMD's new LGA-1207 is ready for quad-core Opterons
Although at this time, details are scarce, we are able to reveal some images of AMD's next-generation Opteron socket, called Socket F. AMD's Socket F will be a LGA-type socket with 1207 pins, and is an entirely new design from current Opteron sockets. We've read that the new socket will be used for upcoming dual-core Opterons as well as quad-core Opterons. The new socket comes with an updated retention mechanism.
Intel adopted the LGA socket design with Prescott to reduce cost and also to reduce the defect rate on processors. After all, would you rather scrap a $600 CPU for a bent pin, or a $100 motherboard for a bent land grid? A few days ago, we got
of the upcoming Intel 771 LGA socket for Xeon motherboards.

You guys are missing the actual reason Intel switched to the LGA socket. They wanted to decrease the thermals, although I have no idea how the difference in socket could possibly keep the temperature lower, not to lessen the hazard of bending a pin. Think about it in a capitalistic way. It makes no sense for a company to decrease the risk of a costumer having to buy another of its products. Intel and AMD would love for you to accidentally break a pin on your Extreme Edition or FX that you just blew a grand on.
