Intel to abandon the motherboard market

Concentrating on NUC and Ultrabook instead.

cave_diver has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
"it's clear that Intel feels its efforts would be concentrated elsewhere"

"would be better" or "should be"?

Better. I seem to be dropping words left, right and centre at the moment - fixed, ta!

Is this really a bad sign? Companies concentrating their efforts to what they do best is what keeps businesses alive, the companies that haven't are the ones now dying.

Note the little superscript two: 100cm² = 10cm x 10cm, which is the precise size of the NUC board.

No. You're thinking of "100 square cm" not "100 cm squared".

10cm² does that for you. Feel free to delete this post once you've read it, sorry to be a stickler.

Damnit, you're right. I *always* have a blind spot for "square centimetres" and "centimetres squared." Fixed, ta!

No need to delete anything: when I'm wrong, I'm happy to hold my hands up to it.

No worries.

I am interested to see how this plays out for them. Company evolution can often be a really good thing, stagnation in a boom leads to losses in the future. Doesn't bode well for AMD though that Intel are still keeping a close eye on the ball.

It'll be more interesting to see who Dell picks as its main Intel motherboard supplier when the time comes, they're the only PC firm I can remember that nearly always took the Intel mobo to go with the chips.

Did anyone actually buy Intel boards? From what I remember, they generally have less features, yet cost more than other manufacturers.

But yeah, Intel sticking to what they do best isn't a bad thing. It's stupid not to.

I bought a few. The thing is, if you need an atom board for anything but multimedia, your choice is either Intel or Supermicro (expensive). I still haven't seen anything like D2500CC (dual intel NIC, mini PCIe, multiple com ports, LVDS, LPT) for the same price from other manufacturers.

No main company buys boards from them to begin with.

Apple and Dell the 2 biggest users of this board type do not buy them from Intel Shockingly enough.

They are basically a stable board test platform for most manufactures. But from what ive read elsewhere they will stop manufacturing of boards for public use but still supply OEM boards for the manufactures of the new cpus.

Yep. And I went on the basis that I'd never bought one because of the lack of features, and I don't know anyone that has.

Hate to ruin it for you, but it's 100cm², not 10cm². When you multiply units, you multiply both number and dimension. So 10cm x 10cm = 100cm². If you want it to be 10cm², then it has to come from 1cm x 10cm
