But if we change sockets that means we get not only the sale of a chipset but the licensing fees for the socket. All over again ! even from the people who bought Kabylake ! And if we use paste we will save 0.001 cents per CPU so yes, let's use crappy paste and then let the mugs at the other end delid their CPUs and voiding their warranty. If we just make the CPU substrate thinner we will also save a few pennies here and there ! /sarcasm finished but that is basically Intel now.
