    Intel committed to socketed CPUs

    Told you it was a silly rumour

    Rumourmongers used to be better at what they did. Earlier this week we saw Nokia debunk daft rumours of a possible Android phone and now it’s Intel’s turn to kill an equally outlandish rumour.
    Last week it was reported that Intel could ditch socketed processors as early as 2014. For some reason the rumour got a lot of traction and Intel was eventually forced to respond. In a chat with Maximum PC, Intel spokesman Daniel Snyder said the chipmaker will remain committed to desktop enthusiast and channel markets and that it will “continue to offer socketed parts in the LGA package for the foreseeable future for our customers and the Enthusiast DIY market.”

    Snyder did note that Intel cannot comment on specific long-term product roadmaps, but even so it is quite obvious that Intel will continue developing LGA processors for some time, depending on how we interpret “foreseeable future.”

    Of course, the low-end market is a different story. Both Intel and AMD have been churning out cheap ITX boards based on Atom and Brazos chips for a couple of years now, but using the same approach with pricey high-end components would be very difficult indeed.
