    Pin processor has lines of pins around the edge of the chip. These slotted into a corresponding socket to provide the connections to the motherboard or merge into the motherboard, while pinless processor has tiny metal balls instead of multiple pins. These newer connectors simply rest on top of their corresponding pads on the motherboard. You can use CPU-Z (a small utility) to know more about processor.

    One has pins and the other does not. The older pin type had the risk of getting the pins bent if you were not careful trying to upgrade your processor. The new pinless do not have this issue.
