Does anyone know the justification Intel used for the new platform for Haswell?
To make money. They are a business after all.
Aside forcing people to upgrade motherboards I don't know. There's usually some electrical stuff involved afaik, but sales is often the main point I think.
The voltage regulator module (VRM) is integrated into the processor with Haswell. This is the main reason for the change. There's is no easy way to make old sockets compatible, so they just introduced a new one.
Separate names with a comma.
