When it comes to grabbing headlines in technology, you normally expect it to involve new chips, architectures, power figures, or clock speeds. A graphics card, CPU, laptop or phone—those immediately garner lots of attention. But processor sockets? No, not really, though there’s one that stands out as the exception and AMD even “boldly suggests” it has “legendary status.”

They host all the connections required to power the chip and let it communicate with RAM, graphics cards, SSDs, and everything else in a PC.
