If you don't have a problem with upgrading software, then you shouldn't be upset with Intel. They're doing the same thing.
its cause hardware and software are not the same, I can see upgrading software downloading some code and installing it.
but when I buy a chip and the specs say such and such I don't wanna get home and install it only to find wah this isn't what i paid for, or there is some extra part of the chip being wasted just cause intel wants to squeeze more cash out of me.
And given how crappy hardware is thrown together these days with everything mismatched cause hardware vendors are trying to get rid of last years crap for todays prices upping the proc isn't going to do jack when you are running sayyyy
DDR2 single chan
a 5400 RPM SATA6 HD on a SATA3 motherboard
etc etc etc
the systems the box companies push out are so sloppy its just people throwing crap in a box and if it fits and turns on ship it!
