With AMD on the ropes, it looks like Intel may try to kill the Custom build (Enthusiast) PC:

The most direct effect is that of Broadwell, the 14nm successor to next year’s Haswell CPU, will essentially shut out the enthusiast. Motherboards will still be available, but the CPUs that come with them will be soldered down. In addition to being a inventory management nightmare, OEMs won’t buy CPUs any more, the few remaining mobo vendors and ODMs will. As a side effect, it also cuts the enthusiast out of the picture for good, but more on that later.
Seems like a Monopolistic move to me . . . definitely don't like it :thumbsdown:
