It has been pointed out (but I think some of you missed it) that the architecture following the one talked about in the article will be LGA also..


yeah, that's why I asked is this a laptop only line a few posts back

well that's what I meant, their CPU division goes under

which? outside of thin systems, and laptops, and ultra low wattage systems, virtually all desktops are LGA type systems


Well, I should rephrase. I think AMD will focus more on APUs.

And, I think thin systems, laptops, and ultrabooks, etc make up the majority of the consumer PC market at this point. Even the desktops that are left are often all in ones, or come with barebones motherboards that don't support much in the way of upgrading.

Yes, because Broadwell is only a notebook CPU, in 2014 it will still be Haswell in desktop and Broadwell in notebooks only.
Never trust google translate. Specially not from asian languages to english.

Broadwell will be LGA1150. Skylake and Skymont will be LGA based too: last 2 will have the PCH on the CPU package. Either ondie or shared like the Haswell/Broadwell ULT. Basicly meaning Mbs become downgraded connector boards only.

From some of the comments
This article says:

-- Intel will not provide new products for Desktop and non-BGA laptop segments in Broadwell era
-- Instead, they will provide higher clocked Haswell for those segments in 2014
-- Broadwell is "more than tick", and it will include some technologies that were previously planned for Skylake
-- This is because Intel needs to be more competitive in the tablet market, and this may mean the end of Tick-Tock strategy
-- It mentions nothing about Skylake and later or if they will be LGA or not for the desktop

So this sounds more like broadwell will be redesigned as pure mobile chip as intel skips tick/tock and the next "normal" cpu replacement will be skylake.

like someone already mentioned, not allowing us to choose the cpu seperately means that we are stuck with whatever CPU the OEM chooses to pair their mobo with... this would just be like buying laptops minus the portability or the energy efficiency

And the chip in question is designed for portable devices..laptops, tablets, phones etc. Do you have a phone that you can upgrade your CPU in?

This is an unsubstatiated rumor that was posted on Xbitlabs.com yesterday. It has not been confirmed.

Actually, the original article states that Haswell, & Broadwell, are both aimed towards the mobile (tablet) market
hence the SoC, ending the "Tick-Tock" product development Intel was known for...
yet nothing has been said/nor confirmed about Skylake which may still come under LGA

could this drive costs WAY WAY down? Manufacture's maybe would be able to not worry about Product #263 working with 1,000,000 possible parts from countless makers? Maybe get a 100% super tuned PC with I7 performance for $200 or so? Kind of like an pre-built console like XBOX for example having a case that can't (without voiding warranty) be opened.

Yes it will drive costs down for intel.
No it will not drive down costs for consumers.

I wonder if this will be another one of those occasions where a company makes an enormous mistake that pushes their competition way ahead of them.

Don't Intel force you to buy a new socket board for each new CPU release anyway?


Not always. Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge products operate with each other. Socket 478 lasted a fair while, as did LGA775. True it's becoming a bit more commonplace of late, but usually sockets last for at least 1 tick and 1 tock cycle.

if this rumor is true and if those CPUs where meant for the desktop/laptop market (hopefully not), it will be a regression instead of progress. I still remember the days of 286 and 386 and they where a pain in the butt to upgrade.

Actually, those PLCC chips where pretty easy to replace, you just needed a grabber tool to pull them out... only problem wasn't too many options to go to

Intel kills off the desktop, PCs go with it. What will we do if we can't upgrade our rigs?

Oh jolly. What a great world it would be when everything becomes as closed and unyeilding as apple. We might have to thank them for this devolopment if this is true.
