sfcrazy (1542989) writes "PC enthusiasts which like to buy separate processor and motherboards are in for a surprise from Intel, the microprocessor manufacturer. Newer versions of the Intel "Core" Processor will be soldered onto the motherboard. This means that 2014's Broadwell chip, the successor to 2013's Haswell, will be sold only in a non-socket version. Although Intel has not confirmed this story, motherboard OEMs have confirmed the story. What we don't have is a complete picture of Intel in 2014. This means that the story has properties of a rumor."
