Re: Is Haswell the Last Interchangeable Intel Client Processor? This can get very messy with all the different SKUs from Intel and the mainboard manufacturers. There can be a lot of subSKUs for a single mainboard model. Would make sense if Intel were to reduce the number of SKUs to say 1 or 2 processors for the i3, i5 and i7.
On the bright side, no more bent pins. You have no idea how many bent pin cases we have to deal with.
