this is just evolution surely.
My AM2 platform is gonna be about as good as a plate of cold chips once AM2+ and even AM3 come into play. Intel users have been able to swap and change mobo and CPU on the 775 platform for AGES - about time it got updated to exclude the chaff (netburst/celeron D)
Would make more sense as "...the Pentium Netburst CPU range by not officially certifying..."
Needs a space
Actually I think this is a good move by Intel - the sooner they drop the old chips and move C2D chips into all ranges the better.
As for forcing processor upgrades I suspect most people upgrading to Bearlake will be buying with a core 2 anyway. Celeryon seems a waste on Bearlake.
Cheers, I've completely re-written the tag line. I brain dumped into it and forgot to edit it when the article was being changed.
not certified doesn't mean it won't work.. I mean intell never certified the IBM586 chips that ran at 120mhz on an intell mobo in the 486 days and they still worked (speed deamons )
These motherboards/chipsets going to be suporting the new 45nm tech CPU's then?
Yup. 1333FSB and 45nm.
Beerlake? I AM IN!!!!
it is about time they streamlined the platform and killed netburst for good.
