http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/di...hangeable_Desktop_Microprocessors_Report.html read this today, reckon it'll happen? hope it doesn't. i can't see how that will work, every low end or mid range buyer would essentially have to buy a motherboard with CPU already soldered on. it'll be a nightmare. every motherboard manufacturer would have to buy CPUs and offer a mainboard with every CPU option. to cut costs and redundant products, they would probably offer the worst boards with the cheapest celeron, pentium, i3 etc CPUs and mid range boards with i5s only. considering OC has already been killed off in low end CPUs, this is another crappy change we might not be able to escape from.
