Default Re: DDR3 Buyers, a note for you.

I would like to add a comforting note to current buyers.

The next roll out for the mainstream platform is going to be a Haswell refresh, so anybody buying into a Haswell CPU now should be "top of the line" until about 2015 or so. Broadwell as we know it will be BGA, meaning most likely none of you will buy it.

Who/what is more likely to use BGA as opposed to PGA? I guess the question is, who is more likely to benefit from Broadwell?

OEM/Pre-built/POS, ect. Getting a board with the chip at same or almost same cost is beneficial to those saving a buck to markup later. The ability to not upgrade also means those same people look back for future purchase.
