Default Intel to quit production on desktop motherboards - 01-23-2013, 04:01 | posts: 6,296 | Location: Tacoma, Washington

After some 20 years of selling branded desktop motherboards, Intel will begin exiting this portion of its business, Intel spokesman Dan Snyder has told PCWorld. The Santa Clara chip giant will begin the retreat from desktop motherboards as soon as its next-generation Haswell CPU ships, and plans to dissolve its Desktop Motherboard Business unit over the next three years.

If it means putting all those resources towards making better CPUs then I'm okay with this. If it means firing a 1/3rd of their staff then it isn't so good...

Those NUCs are pretty neat but I hope that isn't their new focus. But if it keeps people employed then I guess I can't complain.
