While changing the sockets does allow for changes in the architecture, it is still nice for them to stick with a single socket for as long as possible. I bought my AMD 1090T BE around 2 years ago, and it’s nice that I can go get a motherboard with current tech updates, USB 3.0, SATA 6 and even Thunderbolt.

I do agree that they should change the sockets when a new technological advancement requires it though, especially for the higher end chips which the average joe/mom & pop doesn’t need.
