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.

Currently when you take a heatsink off a motherboard, the CPU tends to come with it. That cannot be very good for the pins' longetivity. With this new land grid design, the CPU is locked into the socket meaning that it will not come with the heatsink, so the pins have a higher longetivity with the new LGA design and it is not the end of the world like everyone claims.
