Windows 7: Demise 1155??

Demise 1155??

I was just checking out the difference between the 1155 and the 1150 sockets and came across this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadwe...roarchitecture)

Now I was thinking of a new build in the nearish future maybe with the Haswell but saw this and am beginning to wonder where it will all end. The slope into being able to keep up looks to be getting steeper and steeper and along with the software to go with it all is making me feel a tad uncomfortable if only from a point of view that one will not be able to afford it it or keep up with each new development.

Maybe it is time to stop where I am.

Yeah, once Intel is done selling LGA CPUs, AMD is going to become king because they're going to continue selling CPUs that are not soldered to the motherboard.

Hum mate I hadn't given that a thought going on that then Intel will lose me. I can't begin to see the logic or reasoning of permanently fixing CPU's to boards - that would entail taking the whole board back out again and who in their right mind is wanting to do that?

I am left wondering what the board manufacturers are thinking about this rather nonsensical set up, because it would upset their sales too unless the board came with a detachable processor panel.

Yeah, I feel the same way. I think AMD is in my future at some point if Intel doesn't wise up and change their plans.

There's no need in upgrading from Ivy Bridge to Haswell unless there is something your current rig won't do. Also, is Intel planning on soldering ALL CPU's to the socket? I read somewhere the performance line would still be a separate socket/cpu. It was all speculation of course.

I don't remember where I learned that all CPUs will eventually be BGA. The article below doesn't say that, but it does say that starting with Broadwell (in 2014), all mainstream CPUs will be BGA:

Intel

They are speculating that this could mean that high-end desktop CPUs (like today's LGA2011 CPUs) could still be offered in LGA packaging. Unfortunately, this could be extremely expensive. As they said, at the time this article was written (November 22, 2012), the cheapest LGA2011 CPU (high-end) was $294. That was the cheapest one! As a stark contrast, the most expensiveLGA1155 CPU (mainstream) was $332. That's only $38 more than the cheapest LGA2011 CPU!

So yeah, there's no way I'll stay with Intel if this really happens because there's no way I'll ever have enough money to build a high-end system! It will be "bye-bye, Intel! Hello, AMD!" because AMD is still going to be making CPUs as we know them today.

Edit: here's the article I was trying to find: Intel To Offer Socketed CPUs Till 2016 - Skymont Onward Chips to Ship in BGA PackagesIt says that Intel will no stop producing LGA (socketed) CPUs in 2016.

I will use my latest build until I die, I`ve asked to have it buried with me.

And of course I`ll upgrade.

I added a link to the article I was looking for:

Intel To Offer Socketed CPUs Till 2016 - Skymont Onward Chips to Ship in BGA Packages

It says that Intel will completely stop producing LGA (socketed) CPUs in 2016. It also mentions that AMD will keep producing them and have no plans of stopping!

Yeah, I've read quite a bit about this and I knew the lower end and probably mainstream would be changed, but their Extreme line may stay the way it is......they could change their minds, who knows. It's a dick move at any rate.

According to the 2nd article I linked above (the one I finally remembered), 2016 will see the end to all socketed CPUs from Intel. Fortunately, AMD is not going to stop producing them.
