Wholeheartedly disagreed AkG.
The users that want maximum performance will buy, brand-new, the highest cpu/motherboard no matter what, once it comes out. They won't be the ones to cheap out and buy the lower-end motherboard. Those same people now get to buy a new processor and give their cheaper system a boost, while those same max. perf. users will buy the brand new boards when they come out along with the matching CPUs as soon as theyre released. This is
. Budget minded users still get to upgrade to some newer tech for cheap (since they don't buy high-end anyways), and enthusiasts still get their new whole platform. This isnt the same for intel... you don't seem them making a SB processor in 775 or whatnot
. Just doesn't happen. AMD's platform longevity is still superior IMO.
Just to be clear(er): I
like the same model#/two different boards thing. Thats just dumb, but thats also the fault of the Board manufacturers, not the fault of the platform or strategy itself.
