hi
i'd like to clarify,
will there be desktop broadwell w/cpu solder directly on the motherboard?

no Broadwell product planned for socketed desktop platforms.

what about skylake/skymount?

will all future motherboards have cpu at 14nm soldered?

I dont think intel is that dumb, they are ahead of AMD, but if this CPU will come soldered to mobos, they will lose a ton of customers, people will adapt, i also expect AMD not to be sleeping for the next two or three years, they can build competitive CPU the problem is they consume way to much energy.

I have read mulitple articles where some say that its not for the high range, that they wont make BGA the standard on the next gens and they do plan LGA to continue... how long who knows...

Even if this happens i doubt they will do it on E series, maybe they are forcing people that want LGA to move into more expensive platforms... who knows.

Overall i do think intel wants it, and i think it will happen but not short term.

I believe there was early speculation that Broadwell wouldn't come in LGA form, but Intel later promised that it would. No guarantees after that. Depends on how the market goes.

So Broadwell will be similar to Haswell in that there are LGA SKUs, but also at least one BGA SKU (the 4770R SKU is Haswell BGA and includes the on-chip L4 cache).

will broadwell require a new socket/motherboard?

It will use the same physical socket, but it will not be compatible with motherboards that were produced for the initial run of Haswell chips. Rumor has it that there will be a Haswell refresh next year, and those motherboards will be compatible with Broadwell chips when they launch.

...searching for the article....
