Intel is phasing out the manufacturing of desktop motherboards over the next three years.

The stark decline in the sales of desktop PC’s is beginning to hit the industry hard, as Intel reveals plans to slow down the production of desktop motherboards over the next three years.

According to sources, the company will release the boards that are based on the Haswell architecture before completely suspending development. Intel plans on focusing its efforts on creating form factor reference designs for the Ultrabook, tablet and desktop markets.

One product that remains immune from the change is the Next Unit of Computing, a mini bare bones system that Intel will be continuing to develop. Custom PC builders will be the ones who may take pause over the loss, however, Intel said that the transition will not be affecting the company’s workforce. Current employees will be transferred and absorbed into other divisions within the company.
