What Does LGA 3647 Mean?

In usual situations, LGA 3647, also called Socket P, refers to a kind of CPU socket that is compatible with the certain Intel processors including Intel Xeon Phi 72×0 (“Knights Landing”), Intel Xeon Phi 72×5 (Knights Mill”), Intel Skylake-SP, Intel Cascade Lake-SP/AP, and Intel Cascade Lake-W microprocessors.

This type of sockets adopts Flip-chip land grid array (FCLGA) chip form factors, and it has 3647 pins or contacts to contact with the underside of the processors. Socket LGA 3647 makes use of Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) as a replacement for QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) and direct media interface (DMI) 3.0 serving as its front-side bus (FBS) protocols. Its supported processors’ dimensions are 76.0 mm x 56.5 mm.

LGA-3647 socket supports a 6-channel memory controller, double data rate 4 synchronous dynamic random-access memory (DDR4 SDRAM), and non-volatile 3D XPoint memory DIMMs. It uses 100G Omni-Path interconnect and a new mounting mechanism that doesn’t use a lever to secure it on the motherboard, instead of secured by the CPU cooler’s pressure.

Slot LGA 3647 succeeded socket LGA 2011 in the performance and low- and mid-end server platforms in 2016.

LGA 3647 Sub-versions

There are 2 variants of land grid array 3647 sockets, LGA 3647-0 (socket P0) and LGA 3647-1 (socket P1). They are different in several aspects including the independent loading mechanism (ILM), processor package carrier frame (square vs narrow) preventing mounting the heatsinks for other socket versions.

Tip: Noctua is an LGA 3647 cooler that is specially designed for Intel LGA 3647 CPU socket coming with both square and narrow carrier frames.

Respectively, LGA 3647-0 version is used for Intel Skylake-SP and Intel Cascade Lake-SP/AP processors, while LGA 3647-1 version is applied to Intel Xeon Phi x200 processors.
