The end of Intel white box servers?

I've had more than my fair share of experience with white box Intel servers. Can't say I'll miss them... they were always so generic that you didn't know exactly what you were getting. Long random string for a model number. Knew you'd get a halfway decent model of every chip needed, but hard to be specific. No integration to speak of, just the plainest vanilla EVERYTHING.

I can hope that their demise will mean vendors will have to switch to re-branding to much better integrated system from well-known server makers, but there's also the real possibility they'll switch to even more lackluster products from completely generic white box server manufacturers who will throw completely random parts/chipsets in each one.
