Welded processors from Intel: Now it's almost official

The welded processor controversy of Drawn, and now it's official (seemingly) - in a few years we will start to see more and more Sold when soldered in advance to the motherboard
Last year, We were furious when we discovered that Intel apparently had plans to abandon processor residency and instead adopt a business model where processors would be soldered directly to the motherboard and could not be purchased separately or upgraded separately.
According to a reliable source From the motherboards industry, the frenzy of desktop-soldered CPUsBroadwell: Minimizing 14 Nanometer Manufacturing ProcessHaswell Which is expected to emerge into our lives in a storm in 2014. The low-end markets will probably not be available in the version that is suitable for theHaswell And from 2016 or higher it may no longer be possible to upgrade rule.
BGA - Should you start getting used to it?
According to the source, the sale of the motherboard combined with a built-in processor gives big motherboard manufacturers an added advantage over the smaller ones: because they will buy more processors, they will necessarily get better prices (remember the group sales we had? Better price?) And will also be able to choose chips with better frequency potential. This will enable the motherboards manufacturer to sell processors at Overclock from the factory (as has been done for many years in the video card market)Turbo Boost של .
The downside of the whole thing is what happens if the motherboard breaks down after a certain period of use. Processor is the most reliable hardware component and if at all Which turned out to be an option to replace the processor, would make life unnecessarily difficult for the business that sold us the combination, not to mention the entire replacement process along the importer-manufacturer chain.
They are not so beautiful, but at least they can be upgraded. AMD Vishera processors
As we have already noted, the transition from upgradable colonies to welded processors will happen in stages. On 2014, with the launch of theBroadwell, Will be available from theCore i5 and the-Core i7 Which are designed for the performance and extreme markets as upgrade versions suitable for the high-LGA 1150, While theCore i3 And down will probably be available only to motherboard manufacturers who in turn will sell them in combination with their motherboards.
Apparently, the latest generation of processors Which will have the option to replace Easily the next generationSkylake: The 14 Nanometer's production processBroadwell But a completely new processing architecture that comes in 2015. A year later, in 2016, the architecture will go down to a process of 10 nanometer production, you get the name Skymont And probably will no longer be available with the ability to upgrade. Too bad.

  1. scandal
    If they did, they would become Apple's business model without the ability to change. So far I only use Intel processors and really didn't like an idea. As soon as that happens I will switch to AMD processors and in my opinion many other people as well.

  2. Returning to AMD and Intel lost a potential customer. Hope many more
    Intel brings us back to the 1980s. Next step Memory without extension and tape?

  3. You can understand this step
    Trying to simplify the computer world and get to the point where there are as few components as it will end up being just a small box to be a powerful computer that will meet all needs but it will limit all technological development and put Intel's power in the pace at which to release new products and product lines
    At the present time all I5 and above will meet the demands of games etc. At least the possibility of upgrading video cards will remain and there will probably be a trend there too go for built-in video cards in the processor

  4. The most basses there are…
    I just hope that by then AMD will be level
    Good enough that we can emigrate to them wholeheartedly.

  5. Don't worry, these are low-end series
    Processors designed for markets that don't understand upgrading or want / will already have a taste for upgrading.

    There are many benefits to welded processors, such as superior reliability, more successful heat dissipation, and "from the factory" integration of the processor to the processor (with everything around it).

  6. Greed for its own sake
    They can sell pre-welded versions in parallel with resident versions if it's really just a matter of economic potential. They can convince manufacturers to sell ready-made sets of board + processors. But that's just excuses. They want my money.
    I wish them well and wish AMD to circus them like then, maybe then they will realize that when a company is good for the customer, the customer is good for it.

  7. I get the shape
    What basa, why restrict customers? Make 2 versions, those who want soldered, and those who want a bracket.
    I don't mind paying more for the upgrade option, but it won't stop me at all.

  8. I happen to need a computer
    And during that time, all Intel processors will be soldered to the motherboards, I will switch to AMD (just hoping that switching to another processor will not cause me any software problems). It's just plain stupid. While I have never upgraded a processor or replaced a processor (usually if a processor had to be replaced, I would buy a new computer), but I am not ready for this approach. It fills an on-board video card, the big advantage of which is a wider chassis space (a built-in video card doesn't take up the chassis volume like an external card), but not the on-board processor. The network card is now also built-in, and once it was external, as was the sound card.

  9. Processors with Factory OC ??
    Cool! IM buying!
    Overclock from the processor factory will also bring the gospel of OC to the masses who are afraid of violating the processor's responsibilities.

    Never in history do I remember a case where I replaced a processor on the same board (neither malfunctions nor upgrades).

  10. Greed will eventually pay off
    Two reasons I have been loyal to Intel to this day are
    The reliability and upgrade capability of the processor or more correctly,
    If a motherboard crashes for some reason.

    If that's the case, I'll have to move to AMD.

  11. Proportions ...
    It has not happened yet and is not certain to happen. And if so, today there are many "welded" or "cast" processors on many electronic devices. It is a cheap and convenient solution for cheap devices that are not expected to upgrade but a replacement at the end of their lives.
    Anyone think Intel will let AMD or a future competitor rob it of the main processor market? Think again. Apparently, Intel is actually thinking of expanding the range of installation methods for processors and will not give up a huge market. Imagine that huge companies like Gigabyte or Asus are starting to produce boards for AMD processors only… unlikely.

  12. Moving to AMD
    I was supposed to order a tablet + processor I7 next week
    Instead I take AMD!
    It is better now to stop supporting a company that does not see its customers in meters…

  13. Rumors continue to fuel
    The fact that 2016 will have desktops with welded processors does not mean that they will stop producing separated processors. As long as there is a requirement Intel will provide it.
    (If you can buy 2016 motherboard + i7 processor at the price you buy today only motherboard, we will see you buy AMD…)

  14. And in the 2017 motherboards will be soldered to the chassis?
    For those of you who remember, you used to fight
    Hard drives for motherboards.

  15. You're left with nonsense
    First of all the transfer will be gradual. Second thing . An average home computer costs NIS 2000 today and its life span is about 3 years. There is a wonderful example today, boards that are integrated with atomic processors, and so most of the controllers nowadays pass to processors which significantly simplifies the motherboard. So integrating the processors in the boards is a good step for the general market. Perhaps the gamers we built will benefit from the process (chances are Intel will make upgrading more expensive than buying a new one, which over time will make the upgrades disappear from the market - don't forget that the reliability of parts is also higher today and will improve over time).<

  16. I moved to AMD a year and a half ago, wanted processors at a reasonable price
    I bought AMD's FX-6100 one year and a half ago at NIS 600 and now in 2014 you can find it on sandy sites at NIS 300, a processor can be rolled up to 5 gigahertz 6 cores What the hell needs more ?? Intel invents all kinds of features Which is absolutely not necessary for at least a year to come and huge money for free, today the video card sets, the 6100 with my 7870 harddown and the U.SSD drive provide me the goods above and beyond I can always upgrade in the future to the latest 8 cores when I need and mostly cheap Intel has long lost me (;
