+ - Is Intel Planning to Kill Enthusiast PCs?->

OceanMan7 (1664723) writes "According to a story by Charlie Demerjian, a long-time hardware journalist, in SemiAccurate.com, Intel's next generation of x86 CPUs, Broadwell, will not come in a package having pins. Hence manufacturers will have to solder it onto motherboards. That will likely seriously wound the enthusiast PC market.

One might think that tIntel are just cutting their own throats given the competition, but AMD is financially on the ropes. A quote from analyst Alan Brochstein in a recent article at seekingalpha.com states: "Advance Micro (AMD), on the other hand, looks terminal to me despite new management."

Anti-Trust Prosecution take so long that it's not a viable alternative for stopping this. If Intel doesn't change their plans, the future pasture for enthusiasts looks like it will go to ARM chips or something from offshore manufacturers."
