    Instead of buying an Extreme4 and a 3570K separately, you'd probably just be buying an Extreme4 3570K. Kind of like how graphics cards are sold board and chip combined.

    I'm thinking intel just wants to shed some confusion.
    Have motherboard-manufacturers selling 1-2 i7 3770K ATX Z77, 1-2 i5 3570K ATX Z77 et c., same with lower form factors and lower voltages.

    Point is, you dont know that. I have a feeling only high end mobo's will be sold with high end cpu's. For instance, you dont need that much of cpu power, but you do need a lot of SATA ports or other stuff on a feature rich mobo board. You will prob be stuck with an high end mobo which than comes with a high end cpu.

    But we should all just wait and see how it all turns out And if intel does do it, i will probably go with AMD seeing as that is probably my time to upgrade again :P

    Point is, the whole platform is planned to be for mobile devices only... No enthusiast-stuff coming on BGA anyway.

    Not going to happen. Intel will always sell CPU´s by themselves, anything else would be stupid and bad for bussiness.

    enthusiant pc's will never die aslong as stock settings are in place. (since a factory setting will never use the full potential of a CPU)
    the same could be said for mobo to an extend (apple like approach that would be)
    and even if they would be sold a single solid item (mobo+cpu) im sure there are still people who will manually swap the mobo/chip because the standard selections of chips/boards simply does not live up to what they need/want in a performance/usage PoV. (risky to remove BGA ones likely but if the reward is worth it nothing out of the ordinary)
