Like it or not, nonreplaceable CPUs may be the future of desktops
We're still waiting on Intel's next-generation Haswell CPUs to launch, but details and rumors are already swirling about processors that are even further down the company's roadmap. The latest scuttlebutt is that Broadwell, the follow-up to Haswell due in 2014, will forego standard socketed desktop processors. If the rumors are true—and both ZDNet and SemiAccurate report that they've received confirmation from PC OEMs—Broadwell desktop CPUs will need to be soldered directly to motherboards, and won't be easily swappable or upgradeable by users and system builders.
