    Default The End of an Era, Intel Exits Motherboard Market!!!

    The desktop PC might be dying, but it's still on life support. Now, Intel's decided to let one of its internal organs function with slightly less external involvement. Starting later this year, after the launch of its new Haswell chips, the company will stop developing new desktop motherboards. In fact, Intel plans to wind down the whole desktop motherboard business over the course of the next three years.


    According to the company, there aren't any plans to abandon the desktop market just yet,as Intel will keep producing desktop processors for now, but rumor has it that future processors might be pre-soldered to OEM motherboards... which could make it difficult for enthusiasts to piece together computers of their own. "Intel remains very committed to the desktop business," reads part of the statement , but later the company gives itself an out: "Future product roadmaps will be evaluated based on platform performance and power needs," says Intel.

    For now, there are still plenty of excellent component choices if you're, say, building yourown gaming PC . But if Intel doesn't believe desktop motherboards are still a viable business by 2016, we wonder how long they'll continue to be available from the top Taiwanese manufacturers like Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte.

    Bullshit indeed. PC will never die.

    They may have stopped manufacturing motherboards. A wise move, I guess. Will create window of opportunities to focus on New technologies & with their upcoming processors. And more importantly getting in on the Smartphone business.

    I guess it would sound bad if they said "our motherboards can't compete with the others in the market so we are giving up", so they are goung with the "desktops are slowly dying" excuse.

    These are crap.
    Intel just made a good excuse to convince everyone that they are trying to focus on other things instead of directly telling that their mobos can't compete with the others in the market. As wolf stated.
    Loved by few,
    Hated by many
    But respected by all!!

    They r going to focus on mobile processors, 12-14 nm, ATOM really sucks compared to Tegra 4 & Exynos 5

    You guys make it sound like OEMs make boards all by themselves, who do you think sells them the specs? This move can be a big blow to OEM PC manufacturers and it can also mean they are moving to a BGA system which could affect other MOBO manufacturers.

    Btw PC is dying comment is from the site not Intel themselves.
