Does the ASUS P7P55D Motherboard support the 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor?

I have a PC I built based on the ASUS P7P55D motherboard. Currently it has an Intel Core i5-750 LGA1156 processor in it, a 3rd generation processor. I just found out that to run the Intel RealSense camera I need to a 4th generation Core i5. Will my ASUS motherboard support the new 4th generation processors?

If so, please let me know where the best place to get a good price on one would be. Amazon seems kind of high.

  1. Best answer
    The i5-750 is a first gen, not a third gen part. In any case, the socket must match exactly. Since the fourth gen parts use an 1150 pin socket (different than the 1156 first gen or 1155 second and third gen chips) that board is not compatible with a new CPU.
  2. As to pricing, Amazon isn't much more expensive than any other store for the same parts. A new i5 tends to go in the $200 range depending on the specific model (lower i5's a bit less). The boards can vary in price depending on feature set.
