From Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
LGA 2011, also known as Socket R, is an unreleased Intel CPU socket. This socket is set to supersede Intel's LGA 1366 (Socket B) in the high-end and performance desktop and market areas. This socket will have 2011 protruding pins which touch contact points on the underside of the processor.
Socket 2011 uses QPI to connect the CPU to either additional CPUs in a dual socket system, or to add-in chipsets. The CPU will handle northbridge functions, such as memory control, PCIe control, DMI, FDI, and other functions integrated on chip.
This socket is expected to be released alongside Sandy Bridge-EX in Q3 2011, and will support 4 memory channels as well as 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes ; the socket will measure 58.5mm x 51mm, and is backwards compatible with LGA 1366 cooling solutions

Sandy Bridge 'E': Patsburg
Next is Sandy Bridge 'E' (Enthusiast or Extreme, take your pick) 'Patsburg' platform, which features a huge new LGA2011 socket to replace LGA1366 in Q3 next year (although right now that seems dubiously convenient given the year of launch). The larger socket is to accommodate the new four channel DDR3 memory controller this platform will offer, as well as the first outing for PCI Express 3 - of which we'll get 32 lanes bolted into the CPU itself. The lanes can be split between 2x16 and 4x8 for multi-GPU, but again, there's no details about CrossFire or SLI support at this early stage.
Like LGA1156/1155 motherboards, LGA2011 motherboards will have only a Southbridge, but whether this Southbridge is called 'X68' (as some Taiwanese manufacturers are saying), we don't yet know. The new Southbridge seems like a complete update with a real focus on the single-socket workstation and server market as it houses two SATA 3Gbps and ten SATA/SAS 6Gbps ports. The interconnect is still a 4x PCI-E 2.0 DMI link between this and the CPU, providing some 2Gbit/s of bandwidth.
That's all for now, we'll keep you updated as we learn more!
Oh, one last thing: one of our sources states LGA2011 will launch with quad-and six-core CPUs (with Hyper-Threading so eight and 12 execution units) although another source has stated eight-core CPUs are also on their way.
ok.. tu baru pasal LGA 2011.. ni plak pasal Processor yang akan guna LGA 2011 punya tapak

"Sandy Bridge" (32 nm, quad-core)
Intel is expected to launch the new "Sandy Bridge" processor architecture at CES 2011 starting January.
- All models support: AVX, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), Intel 64, XD bit (an NX bit implementation), TXT, Intel VT-x, Intel VT-d, Hyper-Threading, Turbo Boost, Smart Cache, AES-NI.
- S processors feature lower-than-normal TDP (65W on 4-core models).
- T processors feature an even lower TDP (45W on 4-core models or 35W on 2-core models).
- K processors are unlockable and designed for overclocking. Other processors will have limited overclocking due to chipset limitations.
