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."

Wasn't the P3 300 mhz celeron, the chipset that really kicked off overcloking? That is where you could buy it for like $300 and overclock it to run like a $1000 chip. Back when 3dfx and 3d kicked off? To me that was when overclocking really paid off, $ wise and performance, you needed every little bit.
One of them yep. You could get the 233 and 266 cellery upto 400-700mhz with stock aircooling. And they were dirt cheap, in the $89-129 range if I remember right. Pretty sure I have some of the old stock sheets around for them. They weren't expensive by any means.

What really made them fly was when people figured out how to bypass the hardware multiplier lock.
