Default Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs?

November 27th, 2012, 22:42
This news is just depressing. First AMD might sell its desktop division and now Intel is doing this. Intel's upcoming Broadwell CPUs will be soldered to the motherboard, rather than socketed, a detail they have now confirmed with a pair of OEMs.

This will be a death knell to the desktop PC and the enthusiast market. Intel's Sky Lake processors that will follow Broadwell will be socketed for one or two generations to follow, they conclude: "By then the last remaining overclockers and experimenters on the PC front will be gone, and for good technical reasons."

Seems both company's want to pursue mobile devices instead but Intel also wants to destroy mobo and video card makers also. Go buy your pc consoles people it's becoming a reality.

I also post news on Fluent's World on Goggle +.
