After more than 20 year in business, Intel Intends to stop producing motherboards herself
Since the year of 1993, has created Intel Chipsets compatible with their processors in addition to motherboards based on the same chipset, besides selling these chipsets (which have been merging into the processor in recent years) to other motherboard manufacturers who in turn also manufacture motherboards and sell them, even more successfully than Intel herself.
Therefore, according to official information from Intel, the company intends to exit this market gradually after the launch of processors -Haswell And get out of it completely in three years. This move in response to two things: Intel Is not able to compete with the innovation of motherboard manufacturers from Taiwan. In addition, according to a large change of direction in the company, it is interested in investing the resources that will be transferred from its motherboard industry to new PCs.
