Re: Is Haswell the Last Interchangeable Intel Client Processor?
There are sockets out there that can handle BGA packages, although they are *really* expensive.
Will be interesting to see how it plays out though....
That would really suck. While CPU upgrade may not be as common as it used to be, the last new system I bought from Dell came with a cheap dual core Pentium (D925?) while the optional core 2 quad would've more than doubled the price. Just looked on eBay, and the Q6600/6700 CPUs are priced very reasonably, and one of them should roughly double the performance of that system. (SC440)
