    I cant imagine this happening for several reasons, but the biggest one is the antitrust laws we have in the US. 
     
    Having all x86 made by one company would be a monopoly, and its already bad enough with only two players.
     
    I doubt this will happen and if it did, it would be very, VERY bad for consumers even if you are a super hardcore intel fanboy that believes AMD should just die, because this would allow intel to sit on their ass and produce nothing new like they did during the AMD FX days.
     
    Really dont think this will ever happen, I expect its just intel corporate stirring up some nonsense to generate press.

    My Asus mobo replacement likely to arrive from RMA in 2-3 days, that's fast. My brother went to service center on saturday and it's been 4 days since then. So, it's going to take max. 1 week overall. My brother called them today earlier in the morning where they confirmed. My 750 ti in RMA used to take around 10-12 days usually.
     
    Also, my brother is considering giving me his i5 3550 that he bought recently

    Ypu know, I'm actually disappointed in the whole soljaboy fiasco. 
     
    There are many real neat DIY raspberry pi emulation prjects, if he invested in something like that, a user friendly DIY product I think things would have turned out differently. 
     
    At the very least, it could have been a neat project and may have challenged some negative stereotypes involving rappers, but instead we have an idiot that is just reinforcing said negative stereotypes. 
     
    This could have been cool, this could have been more then just him flipping existing hardware, this could have been a positive influence on young aspiring rappers. 
     
    But no, we have an idiot that's probably running out of money and no longer relevant in the music industry.  Someone that has no talent anywhere else, and doesn't have the discipline to learn.
     
    TLDR Soljaboy is dumb and doesn't know how to business.

    Asrock and Gigabyte boards are better than Asus boards.
     
    Why?
     
    Because I've found and recovered hundreds of motherboards at the junkyards and overall, asus boards have had the single highest failure rate. i'm also not just saying that because I find a lot of asus boards and it's skewing the statistics, because I don't. I don't find many asus boards to begin with. I usually find more Gigabyte boards anyway.
     
    Nearly every single asus board I have brought back from the junkyard was DOA, while the gigabyte board sitting right next to it in the same recycling container worked perfectly fine.
     
    It doesn't even matter the architecture. I've found asus LGA 775, AM3, AM3+, X58, LGA 1150, LGA 1155, LGA 1156 have ALL have been dead or had some sort of problems coming out of the gate.
     
    This is the single biggest reason I will never buy an asus board. For some reason asus boards can't take a beating and being tossed into a container kills them. Meanwhile the Gigabyte and Asrock boards function like nothing happened.
     
    Although last week I did recover an Asus P5Q Pro board that appears to still work. That being said I've had asus boards just die randomly in my possession just from trying some different RAM, it makes absolutely no sense.
     
    Overall if you plan to use the same motherboard for 10+ years like I do, stick with something more durable. Gigabyte and Asrock are good choices.
     
    I suppose you COULD use asus if you plan to absolutely baby your board, but who plans to do that? At some point you will have to remove your motherboard from it's case for cleaning, installing a CPU cooler, or even just doing a board swap for an upgrade. If your asus board dies, then there goes your ability to resell the board to get some money back.
     
    Now why is this?
     
    I think it's because if anything on an asus board stops working like the SATA controller, the entire board will refuse to boot. If something breaks on a gigabyte or Asrock board, the board will continue to function, just with that particular functionality no longer working. For example, an asus board might refuse to boot if one of it's RAM slots is dead. Meanwhile the same dead RAM slot on a gigabyte or Asrock board just means that RAM slot no longer works but the board will still boot up and keep working with the still functioning RAM slots. This is just a guess.
     
    Is this planned obsolescence? I'm not sure.

    Hello everyone,
    Almost 2 weeks ago I was temporarily suspended due to an issue arising out of my involvement with the Tech News subforum.
    It is clear to me now that it would be in my best interests to avoid the tech news subforum in the future and thus going forward I'm no longer going to be involved in the tech news subforum, meaning I won't be creating tech news topics, replying to tech news posts, or generally do anything in that subforum , and I will be spending slightly less time on the LTT Forums overall.
     
    Development of my Unofficial LTT Notifier extension hasn't stopped although, for various reasons I can't get into here, I have less motivation to continue working on it.
     
    I will continue to adapt my behaviour on LTT to ensure there is no possibility of being in violation of the community standards in the future.
    Thank you.
