I think it's pretty lame the way he puts it. How can a platform be termed dead even though it can't be upgraded further. I think it's real stupid.
Share your views and is it just me that thinks weird of it?
What's your definition of dead? What's the purpose of the question? LOL.
1155 won't be dead until the current crop of 2nd and 3rd generation I7 processors that run on it are incapable of running the current software of the day. Which might not happen for another 7-10 years. And since Haswell isn't that far advanced from say, a 3770K - that same statement holds true for the platform that isn't even out yet.
