Intel (INTC) says it won't make desktop PC motherboards for CPU architectures that succeed Haswell, which will launch later this year. In practice, this means Intel should be out of the motherboard market by 2015. The announcement comes two months after reports that Intel will change the packaging of its desktop CPUs in a way that will kill off aftermarket CPU upgrades and give the company more control over the motherboard market.
