Default AMD: We're not abandoning socketed CPUs

If you were reading the news last month, you might have noticed those slightly worrying rumors about Intel ditching socketed CPUs in 2014. Intel hasn't sought to confirm or deny the speculation. AMD, however, has now chimed in, saying its plans are quite different.

could have predicted this response... but really, I think that even for mainstream CPUs from Intel next gen it won't matter a lot if they are fixed on the motherboard or not;

most, if not all, PC desktop upgrades from mainstream come in the form of CPU/MEM/MOBO upgrade kits..

only for enthusiasts a CPU upgrade makes sense, and I'm sure Intel will prepare a nice product line for them, as they did with the -K series

The rumour of the soldered CPUs is false:

I would say they will definitely co-exist

Intel's statement doesn't preclude the possibility that some of its CPUs will indeed use the soldered-on BGA package rather than the socketed LGA package. By the same token, Intel's "foreseeable future" timetable is vague enough that it could mean virtually anything.
