People started getting rid of socket 1155 motherboards

Hi all! LGA 1155 has long held a strong position in the market, including the secondary market. This is not to say that assemblies on this platform are not relevant now, but I have noticed a certain trend.

Those who have been on my channel for a long time know that I have several retail outlets where the purchase/sale of used equipment is organized. computer equipment. Back in 2020, customers brought many system units with motherboards on socket 775, AM2, AM2 Plus for purchase. There is a separate publication on the channel on this topic. In 2021, I noticed that system units with LGA 1155 motherboards are now being bought up.

This is mainly due to the transition to other platforms. Most have switched to the modern AM4 socket from AMD, which offers greater capabilities compared to modern sockets from Intel. And people hand over old hardware to us or sell it themselves through the Avito, Yula and Yandex Ads trading platforms.

Also, ATMs are gradually updating computer hardware or the ATMs themselves completely. The vast majority of motherboards were installed with socket 775 and 1155. I have a friend who is involved in equipment maintenance, the information has been verified. This hardware is now being written off or disposed of. Something ends up on the secondary market.

More offers with the 1155 socket have now begun to appear at my retail outlets, as recently happened with the 775 socket. Both sockets are still “alive” and in demand. Only 1155 sockets were not willingly brought up for purchase in 2020, but now the situation is changing.

Taking into account the sharp jump in prices for computer hardware, the relevance of the 775 and 1155 sockets is extended. People who currently use socket 775 can easily switch to socket 1155 without much expense. Assemblies on this platform are becoming more accessible. And those who used the 1155 socket find financial opportunities and move to more modern platforms. Such a transition is inevitable, it only differs in time frames. Some will be ready earlier, some later, plus the development of modern technologies will constantly adjust the decision making.
