Post PC: Intel to cease desktop motherboard production in 3 years

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Intel plans to cease production of desktop montherboards in the next three years. While the chip giant will continue to provide components to third-party motherboard manufacturers it will end its own production after launching and supporting  motherboards that support the upcoming Haswell architecture. This is the latest news to follow the downturn in PC desktop sales in the market after a continous slowdown as more consumers move to notebooks and mobile devices.

Intel has been the prime proponent of the Ultrabook, convertible and now tablet form factors and is making a clear bid at the mobile processor market with a renewed line of Atom processors to power smartphones and tablets.
