AMD still uses pins on their CPU and holes in the socket. I'm still undecided which I like better.
Both have their advantages and inconvenient. The LGA socket is mechanically simpler since it is a simple piece of molded plastic with metal contact inserts, no ZIF mechanism required but that comes at the expense of more complex external mechanism to apply force evenly across the CPU to establish electrical contact on more delicate socket fingers.
Mechanically speaking, I think I would call it a tie.
Since most Intel CPUs fancied by DIYers are more expensive than the motherboards they sit on while it is often the other way around for AMD CPUs, I would say things are fair enough as-is. Neither side has a clear advantage there either.
