Details Revealed On Intel’s Upcoming X-Series HEDT Platform

The high-end desktop (HEDT) that will succeed Intel's current "Broadwell-E" LGA2011v3 platform will be the X-Series "Basin Falls" platform. This platform will consist of both "Skylake-X" and "Kaby Lake-X" processors and the chipset will be based on the upcoming 200-series chipset which we will see in just over a month. Intel will be changing the socket, just like they did with their previous three HEDT platforms (LGA1366 for "Nehalem" and "Westmere/Gulftown," LGA2011 for "Sandy Bridge-E" and "Ivy Bridge-E," and LGA2011v3 for "Haswell-E" and "Broadwell-E"). The new socket will be the LGA2066 socket.
