Hold your horses folks, it's a Charlie Demerjian article...

Broadwell BGA, back to LGA for two rolls after that, who knows after that. But anyway they're putting just about everything onto the CPU so MB is just there to plug stuff into.

Shit even with all BGA all that would matter for gaming is whether you can plug in a Nvidia or AMD discrete graphics card.

MB might be important for enthusiasts because it's where most of the decisions lie, but eliminating the need for those decisions does not similarly kill gaming PCs.

Unless the moves they've been making with onboard GPU's is part of a long-term plan to move all graphics onto the die and crowd out discrete cards by eliminating the expansion slots. That's kinda moving into the conspiracy realm though and I'm not wearing a tinfoil hat quite yet.
