101. Re: Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs? Nov 29, 2012, 16:06 Verno

Look at LGA 775, you could start out with a launch Core 2 Duo E6400 and end up with a Q9500 or better years later. That's not possible with BGA. I have even swapped motherboards in the same generation when I wanted some specific features or had tech issues.

You still needed to mobo swap a lot of that era due to die shrinks and compatibility issues though. BGA signalling isn't even a large improvement so I'm not sure its the answer either but oh well.

Personally I think Intel should wise up and ditch the upcoming mobile market entirely at a retail and OEM level. There are going to be more players, ARM is well poised and the profits are nowhere near what they are used to. Intel should just become a foundry business, no one else has their facilities but there are a ton of companies who want them without the astronomical capital asset requirements.

This author makes a pretty convincing argument that's similar, splitting the business up into three distinct units and essentially shepherding the mobile industry instead of trying to directly compete.
