    Well thank god for that!!

    If they did move to non-socketed CPU's AMD would make a raging come back!

    Hehe, after AMDs announcement I guess they didnt want to lose face.

    Hilbert, whats with the strange characters in every news post???
    They dont translate to control codes, they appear as text.

    LOL excuse me come back at what.? even the lowest mid range of intel win all the range of amd cpus...

    they just are afraid of non-sence...almost high-end wannabe users who think they are gonna lose performance...that's why the majority of companies employees (nvidia, amd, intel and others) are not like common people...they have brain and knowledge.

    Who said they were getting rid of them in the first place? All I read was just that Broadwell would be BGA. It never mentioned Haswell EX which will be concurent with broadwell, or the skylake/skymont after it. For all we know Broadwell may be another Westmere, designed for a specific market and for nothing else.

    I'm hardly surprised. That previous rumour must've sparked from a brainstorming session at the company all we know, lol.

    Phew, I feel better now. I really wasn't looking forward to buying AMD to get a socket. Moving on... BRING ME HASWELL SO I CAN UPGRADE!

    not that i really care, i never reused any mobo :S. But yeah, i guess better this way.

    Altho for RMAs, you would get a mostly-new system :)

    Not sure if you are trolling but AMD is competitive with Intel's current i-series in multi threaded software.

    ...stock sure...but intel overclocks much...so...the difference is huge...

    Majority of users, operate at stock clocks.....so, for the vast majority of users, your statement is rather moot...

    yes but you cannot game with stock amd, with stock intel you can :)

    ^Language barrier?

    So will the integration of a fixed CPU bring speed enhancements? E.g: tighter pin connection.

    Heat would be another concern too as the CPU would be closer to the board, not resting on a raised socket.

    It may become necessary to solder the chips if the pins get too numerous and thus too small to prevent damage while fitting / removing a CPU from the socket.
    My first 2 socket 1155 boards suffered pin damage after the CPU was fitted and were both dead.
    Intel will need to find another method of attaching the CPU if they wish to shrink things much further.

    They could of course keep the same pin size and spacing and increase the space a CPU will take up on the motherboard.
    But they may end up having to use silver threads from the CPU die to the CPU connections because the connection points will become very small and will all have to spread along the same plane.
    With a BGA, they have a 1/2 sphere to arrange the connections.

    There are more issues, but they seem to want to apply some effort.
    I didnt expect them to run out of ideas yet :)

    Yey ;D since they shrink transistors i didn't see that they shrink contacts of CPU.

    I'd say an intelligence barrier best to ignore and move on.

    This really should not have even had to be confirmed by intel. If anyone had bothered to read the arrival that started this rumor it said enthusiast level would be left alone, and isn't the atom CPU soldered to the board so this could be just talking about an atom replacement.

    I still run latest games on ****ty outdated dual core pentium, pretty sure ANY new AMD for the past couple years with more than 2 cores would only give me an improvement...
