If this is true i'm glad AMD is still around.
Why not the GPU too? It would make sense. Everything soldered to the MB without any PCI-E slot.
GPU will be done via this too seeing as the mainstream CPU's currently have onboard graphics on them.
AFAIK this will not effect the top end CPU's, the successor to socket 2011 and such.
My guess is they want mainstream (current socket 1155 people) to move to SoC hardware, which is where this comes in. They know people with top end hardware based on socket 1366 and socket 2011 would NEVER move to SoC. Granted 1155 machines are damn powerful, but 2011 is really in another category when it comes to applications that require more cores etc...
