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."

I can understand all the fuss about socket/soldered... but honestly... the last time I upgraded a CPU in a Mobo was..... never. It was always the CPU and Mobo at the same time. And it's been this way for me since my first comp in 1995.

Conversely I've upgraded several times since my first computer in the 90s.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!
