Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs?

A post on SemiAccurate breaks down some information from PC Watch (translation) suggesting that Intel's upcoming Broadwell CPUs will be soldered to the motherboard, rather than socketed, a detail they have now confirmed with a pair of OEMs. They offer the distressed opinion that this will be a death knell to the desktop PC and the enthusiast market, and though they add that they've received information indicating there's a "good chance" that the Sky Lake processors that will follow Broadwell will be socketed for one or two generations to follow, they conclude: "By then the last remaining overclockers and experimenters on the PC front will be gone, and for good technical reasons." Thanks Ant via Slashdot.

nice to hear from the peanut gallery, but do you have anything clever to post other than:

"you are the weakest link, goodbye!"

i drew 2 analogies with regards to the topic at hand, care to completely disregard them and instead just throw one-liners at me? hey cool thanks!

that shit with doctors in america is real, just cause you're ignorant of the issue doesn't mean it don't exist y'all hyuk!

doctors who make fatal mistakes and who are unqualified should be held responsible, but there's evidence that the bulk of lawsuits brought are frivolous. Of all malpractice lawsuits brought to jury trial in 2004, the defendant won 91% of the time.

Texas went from the state with the most lawsuits filed to the only state that wrote tort reform into its constitution after its citizens voted it into law. Since tort reform was enacted in 2004, the yearly premium doctors pay in Texas for malpractice insurance has dropped by 40%. Now, the most plaintiffs can recoup for emotional damages is $250,000 from doctors and $500,000 from hospitals. Most interestingly, the number of claims filed against doctors has dropped by about half.

Miami-Dade County, in South Florida, is now the most precarious place for doctors to practice when it comes to lawsuits. In 2007, OB/GYNs paid on average $275,466 annually for malpractice insurance.

this isn't about actual malpractice, it's about perceived malpractice because you hear from your aunt that you can actually cure cancer by rubbing honey all over your testicles. ie. frivolous lawsuits. If you're paying over a quarter million a year in malpractice insurance, then you're not practicing medicine, you're practicing self defense.

There actually a projected shortage of medical practitioners in the next 10 years in America, between 90,000 and 200,000 more will be needed than are going to school today. that's not a problem?

The ones who are left aren't looking out for you, they're looking out for themselves by making you think you have all the control and choice in the world, and the doctor is only a humble service tech there to take your order and work for you. God forbid

and having family who A) has cancer B) practices medicine in the US might give me some insight, but you're right, i guess i'm just nuts. more choice for all! infact let's all sue mcdonalds because they took away my choice to supersize my meal. it's my choice damnit! america!
