Intel Corporation (INTC) Killing Desktop [REPORT]
November 28, 2012By ValueWalk StaffIntel’s upcoming Broadwell processors will be soldered to the motherboard. This could signal the beginning of the end for desktop PC’s, and the end of the consumer market of computer upgrades.
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) will be releasing its upcoming 14-nanometre Broadwell architecture processors as a ball grid array (BGA) rather than a land grid array (LGA).
The rumors have been circulating for months, but the news broke out earlier this week by Japanese tech site PC Watch; English translation here. This means that consumers will no longer be able to upgrade their CPUs – potentially limiting the lives of their computers.
Ya are you an idiot? Have you built computers before?
If you are upgrading to a newer class CPU, most likely you will need a new mother board anyways. For example the 1st gen i7s VS the 2nd gen i7s will require you to have different mother board. If you were to upgrade within the same line of CPUs of the same generation but would like a faster speed (for instance i7 930 VS i7 950 1gen), then you can keep the CPU. BUT... who upgrades within the same generation of CPUs??? Most people use a computer for 3-4 years until their next upgrade, which will require a NEW mother board.
Therefore, intels plan (if true) to have the chip soldered to the board is a great idea because that will lessen the hassle for people to get a CPU and a mother board. I think it will make building/upgrading computers a lot easier for a lot of people.
"This means that consumers will no longer be able to upgrade their CPUs – potentially limiting the lives of their computers."
What nonsense. How many people upgrade the CPU on their motherboard? Why would anybody put a new CPU on an old motherboard?
Dump your PC for a tablet? Not me.
1 word MANIPULATION! As of right now, this stock SUCKS for me... but give it a couple months and we may be back up to 28, and then I'll be signing its praises...
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Unfortunately I own this POS. I am not a short. This stock will never get to 28 again. It is hopeless. I'm having much better luck with AAPL stock. There I'm actually making money, something I haven't done with INTC for most of the last decade. Dead money!
