    Broadwell for desktop - LGA1150 Series 8 chipset support

    NikosD

      Hello.

      I'm trying hard to understand why Intel doesn't allow Broadwell support by LGA 1150 series 8 chipset.

       

      Why did you limit Broadwell support to series 9 only ?

       

      Do you really think that owners of series 9 chipset motherboards will ever "upgrade" to Core i5 5765C or even Core i7 5775C ?

       

      Those 2 SKUs would be a better upgrade for older Haswell CPUs on series 8 chipset than new Haswell Refresh on series 9.

       

      Waiting for your feedback and your support for Broadwell on LGA 1150 series 8 chipsets.

       

      Thanks.
