Intel "Committed" to Socketed CPUs for "The Foreseeable Future"

Intel has reaffirmed is commitment to providing socketed CPUs for the enthusiast PC market for the "foreseeable future" in response to reports the company was planning on moving towards soldered CPUs (thanks Parallax Abstraction). Here's a statement Intel provided to Maximum PC:

"Intel remains committed to the growing desktop enthusiast and channel markets, and will continue to offer socketed parts in the LGA package for the foreseeable future for our customers and the Enthusiast DIY market," Intel spokesman Daniel Snyder told Maximum PC. "However, Intel cannot comment on specific long-term product roadmap plans at this time, but will disclose more details later per our normal communication process."

Letís put it this way Intel, if you take away the ability for user to socket their boards then you might as well stick a fork in your company and call it done.

Lol, no. If there is no one to challenge them in speed, they are in great shape.

Enthusiasts are a small market, my employer wouldn't care if it was socketed or not and they are the much bigger market, or mom buying a pc/laptop, she doesn't know to care. That said, I'm still buying the best bang for buck HW no matter if it is socketed or not, but prefer socketed.

As we mentioned in the other thread, unfortunately it seems many times when you go to upgrade you have to buy a newer mb/proc and ram anyway, so in most cases it doesn't matter even for many enthusiasts.

But hey if we want to raise the heat level, we can get excited about it!
