What is the socket on a laptop called these days?

For example, Haswell i7 4700HQ goes into WHICH socket?

Also, how do I find a list of what processors can fit into this socket?

 

I ask more out of curiosity, and partly out of an urge to experiment.

MOST 'ulv' processors are soldered, but I wonder if I can get a ULV in socket form, to replace an HQ on another laptop.

 

Why?

Well, ULV chips have a cheap enough bin price, and I'd love to see first hand the battery life between a ULV and an HQ under light and heavy load in identical laptops.

 

 

Will probably just end up being a topic for me to muse over, but I'm still curious.

Socket G3 maybe...

 

Wikipedia has lists of the common CPU types.  e.g. "List of Intel Core i7 microprocessors" - then from there, scroll through the list and note the various socket types.

I don't think they have list of all CPUs per socket type though.

It gets pretty complicated... there's crossover in that some of the Core stuff can be had as BGA packaging but I don't think there's much the other way 'round, ie no Atoms can be had other than BGA types.

Well really I'm just trying to find out of ULV processors come in socket\chip form so I can order one from HongKong and do some benchmarks, battery life testing, and just play around with swapping out a 4700HQ with a 4500U or something like that.

 

But I'm finding the information very hard to source.

 

 

EDIT: turns out one of the laptops I was going to 'play with' has a soldered chip. Nuts. Still, very curious to learn the above.

All mobiles tend to be BGA stuff anyway or FPGA if you're AMD. Anyway, you're probably have better luck looking up the chipset in question as they usually tell you the socket required.

 

BTW, the i7 4700HQ that you're looking for uses the FCBGA1364 socket.
