No more removeable CPU, Intel said so

My comments:

Probably following/copying MS bussines models on 'Surface',

Intel decided to cut the mobo makers, and sell the new CPU already soldered on Intel own motherboards.

That would be really sad! Intel makes crappy motherboards and it would drastically reduce choice/selection.

Other OEMs might still be able to buy CPUs and sell them pre-soldered to motherboards but it would still reduce choice by a lot. There would only be so many motherboard/CPU combos available from each OEM and in stock at different retailers.

Edit: Yes, there's still AMD, but when their "high end" 8 core monsters barely compete with "entry-level" dual core i3's (especially if you ignore rendering benchmarks!) while consuming more than twice the power and that it costs 60% more too ($190 vs $120)...

If Intel does that, it will lose a lot of clients - it's not a viable option for a business.
