Neoconix has teamed up with Intel to develop a low-profile socket alternative for Intel’s Jasper Forest family of processors based on the Nehalem-EP architecture. The new Neoconix socket allows Intel’s customers to maximize the performance and power advantages of this new architecture.

The new low-profile socket from Neoconix supports Intel’s LGA1366 footprint and offers a 50% reduction in mated height compared to traditional LGA1366 sockets. The lower socket profile translates into added clearance for heat dissipation – up to an additional 20% in power dissipation capability in some cases. The socket passes MIL-STD-810F tests for increased reliability in rugged environments.
