The guys over at VR-Zone have scored what appears to be a roadmap document that details the changeover from Broadwell and Haswell over to Skylake. In the document, there is a vast amount of information, including the disclosure of the fact that there will be one chipset for consumer and server. This may ultimately mean that consumers will no longer have to suffer with inferior chipsets and enterprise won’t lose certain features that aren’t deemed ‘enterprise’. Not to mention, by having one chipset for both consumer and server, Intel can drive better volumes of that single chip and improve inefficiencies and profitability.   If you

Socket debuted in 2003, but for every new processor line-up, you had to buy the new motherboard that used the very same Socket. If you bought 925X-based chipset, you could not use Dual-Core Pentiums, if you bought a motherboard that runs DC Pentium, it would not run Core 2, (some) motherboards that ran Core 2 Duo didn’t support Core 2 Quad and so on. Probably the most humorous motherboard of them all
