Intel Changes Plans: Set to Continue with Upgradeable LGA Platforms Even with Skylake Chips.
Dual Cores Athlon --> Quad Core Phenoms --> 6 core phenoms X2 --> and maybe AMD FX
in reality there is more generations i missed like sempron and maybe others, i dont know for sure people that upgraded to the 4 above, but i know for sure users that upgraded 3 cycles (Athlon, Phenom, Phenom X2)on the same motherboard, and man they WON big time.
Intel dipshits does not know that feeling, so typically they diss the LGA socket.
Please imagine the future haswell CPU was coket 1155 instead of 1150, and imagine how much easier for you to upgrade, instead of support Intel greedy plans.
I hated AMD for Liano socket FM1, and you should do the same with intel socket 1150, otherwise your just letting them rip you off and your happy and silent about it.
Oh, and all those motherboards... where are the modern features like USB 3 and PCIe 3.0 that AMD doesn't provide natively. Do they sneak in at night and solder on the upgrades for free?
And getting "unusual" configurations, like someone wanting a highend motherboard with a mid or lowend cpu, that will be troublesome (or even impossible) simply because not many buy combinations like that.
Go back to the very first Mostly-Inaccurate posts about Intel supposedly abandoning the socket. I won't link it because they don't deserve the ad-revenue. Basically, the story was:
INTEL HAS ABANDONED SOCKETS!!*
*Oh, actually Intel isn't abandoning the socket and Sky Lake will have a socket, and so will Haswell, and so will Broadwell except for a couple of models of Broadwell that will be BGA... BUT IF ONE CHIP IS BGA IT MEANS THAT UPGRADEABILITY IS DESTROYED FOREVARS!!!
So... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS CHANGED except for fanboys who misinterpreted third-hand rumors and got their panties in a bind.... This story is just the latest in the long series of non-stories related to this completely manufactured "disaster".
I want to be able to customize my builds to make the best possible system for my money, and I'm definitely not the only one out there.
