They already do this on NUC, Thin-ITX and Mini-STX boards. Those things are miniscule and I haven't heard of this being a serious issue, the same applies to some degree to most every laptop on the planet. Whats that? A billion or so examples. God,they must exploding every second.
You're really good at creating non sequitur and straw man fallacies, you should be a politician
Your concerns, look more like pointless FUD.
When you're calling a widely documented phenomenon about Apple laptops dying for no reason FUD, you become an Apple shill.
This is in fact a smart move from Intel. Will the need of 3.3V and 5V disappear ? No, but it won't be the PSU but the motherboard which will provide the current converted from 13V.
The sùart move is that the motherboards will be become more expensive and fragile and the PSU simpler and cheaper. Intel doesn't care about the PSU manufacturers but cares about the motherboard manufacturers and the loss of Intel speedy update pace they may resent. So Intel is taking from the PSU manufacturers and giving to the motherboard manufacturers what he took and in between he adds another brick to the planned obsolescence of your system.
Yeah, it seems like Intel is doing everything in their power to make desktop PCs less reliable and more rapidly obsolete. I remember when Intel had multiple core revisions of a CPU architecture used the same socket, those were good times. Seems like AMD is the only one doing that now.
