Windows 7: Intel 'preparing' to put an end to user-replaceable CPUs

That's exactly what I meant. I have a 2100 running in my server, and then I see all of these various other 21xx revisions coming out afterwards. I certainly get the point of the i3, i5, and i7 line, but maybe we really don't need all of the various individual processors within those lines. As you said, most of the time, they are slight clock boost, which in the end, matters very little.

I think a lot of people are missing the point with this. There are way too many processors on the market. For example, look at the i3 line, and just how many 2xxx versions there are. If the number of processors are shrinking down, but we still have the spectrum from budget to high-end, who cares? It just simplifies the building process even more. When you run an Intel proc, you are likely using an Intel chipset, so what would really change?

As long as the other manufacturers, such as Asus, Gigabyte, etc are still allowed to build with their own options...such as memory slots, SLI, etc, then again, who cares?

This all-in-one chip and board approach is already on the market in the mini-ITX HTPC segment, and that's not causing any issues.

My notebook has the Intel but according to the booklet that came with it it could have had the AMD because it gives you the pictures showing the main parts depending on whether you have the Intel or AMD model, it's an Asus.

From what I have read, it seems that Intel is going after the mobile market with these new SOC chips. Just like MS with Win 8. The desktop is playing 2nd fiddle.

Intel SSDs - Configured for Intel CPUs or Excellent with AMDs too?
Hi all Yes, that's about it really... Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel. So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too? I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).
