News Comments > Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs?
62. Re: Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs? Nov 27, 2012, 15:26 avianflu
 
Again, laptops globally outsell desktops by a giant margin these days so there's a very clear precedent for Intel to simplify the manufacturing process for their desktop chips and boards. I see why Intel is doing it even if I dont like it.

Also, whoever said the ARM is dying? Not true at all! At this time, there's more than a dozen different manufacturers (and their name is not Intel) making ARM chips for all kinds of portable devices.

Server boxes and workstation type desktops will still need socketed CPU's since it would seem more expensive from the manufacturing side to offer a single, double, quad processor board with the CPU's soldered in place. I suspect Intel is "seeing what will happen" with Broadwell and then making a making a more final decision down the road.

with laptops far outselling desktops world-wide, I can see why Intel is pushing for this. The bigger market is with laptops where the CPU is rarely replaceable. Simpler for intel and simpler for manufacturers.

for folks who dont know, this corporate mindset is even worse at apple. Their thinnest laptops have the RAM soldered onto the board with no expansion possible. the newest rumor is that the new imac desktops (with super thin bezels) will have no RAM expansion, but that isnt confirmed.

it wasnt the long console cycle -- it was the underpowered 360 and PS3 consoles at release.

Heck if those consoles had 1 gig of RAM, that one thing alone would have made a giant difference in the later console titles.

at 80 bucks a month for prepaid, that's not a bargain, even with the additional data cap.

the metro interface should exist only on portable touch-screen devices.

It really is that simple.

The MS executives are on crack if they think I will use win8 solely for DX11.1

The FEAR demo was very very impressive when it released. Firefights actually seemed like firefights.

But the full game lost its verve with a plot that was all over the place.

Cool, but Source was at best a serviceable engine for its time.

Far Cry's engine blew it away in terms of lighting, world-scaling and much more....

Very well said budrojr, especially about just simply waiting for the 20% off price 2 months after release. There's always another game to play in the meantime.

I would add one other factor for consoles. The current AAA games kinda all look the same now (often using the Unreal engine for one thing) so there's little to marvel at when a new AAA game comes out. If anything, games look and play worse these days on the PS3 (i.e. Skyrim). So for console gamers, there more and more reason to be less and less excited about new games that cost 60 bucks.

I want this as much as anyone here but the delay of BG1 and then the "announcement" of BG2 is at least a little dubious.

Will be waiting for lots and lots of reviews before I buy BG1.

And Lauren W. didnt get the free PS3, for all of her career ruining efforts.

Apparently another editor at Eurogamer at that event did get one, so he must be very proud.

Ask many gamers today and they will have no idea what happened at Gamespot 5 years ago. EG is hoping the same will happen here.

you're right and I meant to say -- having some cash for incidental daily stuff is just as convenient as credit cards. i.e. for buying books at BandN. W

What I dont do is use a credit card like its cash. Statistically speaking -- that's asking for some retail worker eventually to palmswipe your card.
