After 20 years, Intel throws in towel on motherboards

In what will only be interpreted as more evidence of the dawn of the “Post PC era,” Intel
announced today that it will quit the consumer motherboard business after 20 years and
end all production and development of mainboards after its next CPU is introduced.

The company said it would wind down operations of its Intel Channel Board Division over the
next three years with the final new designs released around the company’s upcoming “Haswell”

“We disclosed internally today that Intel’s Desktop Motherboard Business will begin slowly
ramping down over the course of the next three years,” Intel spokesman Daniel Snyder told
Maximum PC today. “As Intel gradually ramps down its motherboard business we are ramping
up critical areas of the desktop space including integration of innovative solutions for the PC
ecosystem such as reference design development, NUC, and other areas to be discussed later
