Intel says it will continue to supply socketed CPUs for foreseeable future

Recently there's been quite a stir about a rumor that Intel's Haswell may be the company's last socketed processor for mainstream users. AMD chimed in yesterday that they have no plans to abandon replaceable processors, and now Intel broke its silence and revealed that it will continue to support socketed CPUs for the "foreseeable future".
“Intel remains committed to the growing desktop enthusiast and channel markets, and will continue to offer socketed parts in the LGA package for the foreseeable future for our customers and the Enthusiast DIY market,” Intel spokesman Daniel Snyder told Maximum PC. “However, Intel cannot comment on specific long-term product roadmap plans at this time, but will disclose more details later per our normal communication process.”

The statement by Intel is rare considering the company doesn’t like to comment on unreleased product let alone unreleased products three years and three generations away. That shows how the rumors have continued to build in critical mass over the last few weeks.
