This will simply keep Haswell based CPU's pricing at high levels & as I've already seen, the price for the i7-4790K has risen on Newegg by a little over $10. May need to get one before they're gone, just to have it.
Though to be honest, there's hundreds of millions of off-lease former business/corporate models to choose from that has more security (such as a TPM module) that'll work great with Windows 7 Ultimate/8.1 Pro. Most are cleaned up, tested & redistributed with a refurbished COA affixed to the side or bottom & includes a Recovery partition for reloading the OS. Some has the actual OS reinstalled with the computer, using the original restore media that'll show the computer's branding & support phone number when one types 'System' into the Start Menu & click it.
Just less than two weeks ago, purchased a very nice Optiplex 780 DT edition on eBay for $114 ($94+$20 shipping), has the best Core 2 Quad ever released in the Q9650. Though I upgraded the Windows 7 Pro OS to Windows 10 Pro & it's by far been the best install of 10 I've had, in defiance or protest of this policy, will revert to the image of Windows 7 Pro taken just before the upgrade to 10 & afterwards, run 8.1 Pro or my main OS in Linux MInt.
There's no need to 'lock' a CPU into a certain OS, plus many new PC's still ships with 7 Pro. This could also spell trouble for the Linux market not in the immediate future, maybe 7-10 years down the road as current systems gets older. Evidently Microsoft is twisting the arms of Intel, AMD, Qualcomm & others hard, or more likely, greasing their palms very well. I suspect the latter. So who will Apple & Google with their offerings turn to for CPU's for their OS's? Their usershare is small, yet still profitable, otherwise both brands would have ditched the computer business altogether in favor of their more profitable smartphone ventures.
This will also likely mean Secure Boot will be baked into the UEFI of new computers with post-Skylake CPU's, which likely will be a short lived run. There has already been one issue uncovered in some of these models that will require a firmware update, so now is as good time (or excuse) as any to stop producing these & embrace the Microsoft Way of doing business.
