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

Intel kills off desktop

What will we do if we can't upgrade our rigs?
I'd be lost without my pc

Intel is killing the desktop, but not quite as soon as people expect it to, there will be one last gasp, but that is irrelevant. Word is finally leaking there wonít be a desktop PC chip in a bit over a year.

In a story that SemiAccurate has been following for several months, Broadwell will not come in an LGA package, so no removable CPU. The news was first publicly broken by the ever sharp PC Watch, english version here, but the news has been floating in the backchannel for a bit now. The problem? This information wasnít floating around the OEMs or the majority of the PC ecosystem, they had no clue. What does all of this mean? Quite a bit.

More over speculated the sky is falling garbage.

So the new Broadwell chip will not be a desktop processor? Big deal! Intel has a lot more other (desktop) chips on the market and on the way. Again people panicking for no reason, just like they did with Y2K.

IF this is true, it might give AMD a much needed boost.

Intel is kind of like Microsoft. So big that they can do just about anything them want to. Intel will say that a cpu motherboard combination unit will allow them to improve quality standards, lower power usage and give a all around better consumer experience. What they won't say is they want to control and own the motherboard market just like they do the PC cpu chip market. When I build a new computer I always put Intel on the list of motherboard to compare. They do make quality motherboards. They just want to be the only one on the list.

This is getting out of control, they're going crazy over this whole nonsense tablet whatsoever hype. They may want to integrate the processor on the board of their low end boards/tablets/laptops but they should give PC users especially gamers a CHOICE. No need to force users like Microsoft did with Windows 8/Metro crap.

Seriously, people?! Oh god the sky is failing! The sky is failing! That is what you all sound like to me, failing for this, hook line. We just got Sandy-Bridge-E along with Ivy-Bridge-E soon to be released. Both have DESKTOP PROCESSOR packages. We are going to be well taken care of well beyond the time it takes Broadwell to even be released.

Intel is not going to kill there desktop line of processor. They still have AMD to compete with, they are not going to hand their business over to them. They also have a server market to continue and supply processors to that. No, Intel is not stupid enough to kill off their desktop line of processors. As I said in my first post, "More over speculated the sky is falling garbage."

Also, Haswell, the supposedly next in line next processor from Intel, has a desktop line sockets and all that.

If I understand correctly, the motherboard and processor would not be separate entities anymore. I don't see that as being a big deal, considering both are usually upgraded together. I only use Intel chips and Intel chipset boards, so this really would be a non-factor for me.

That is what I was thinking as well CPU+Board already together now this will cut out the middle man as MB makers ......

You have to choose from what line Intel will produce ,If you read the article it tells you everything will be the same with the exception of you choosing seperate MB and Chip Personaly would of thought this would have happened a long time ago

Also if Intel does do this people like us Enthusist will be forced to choose there offerings and may not even have the performance and freedom as before

That is what I got from this read personaly they should test a few boards and reactions before converting to a whole new way of MB

Assuming this is what there Idea is

No, it won't cut out the mobo manufacturers. They will still make and sell products, just with the CPU built-in. That's already been done in the mini-ITX segment and no one has complained about it. It only seems natural to expand it to the entire spectrum. You know there will be levels as well...from the cheap budget build to the high-end lines.

How hard would it be for a third party "CPU card" specification to be created? Kind of like how GPUs are placed onto cards by OEMs.
