Intel's next CPU (Haswell) will be using socket 1150. Socket 1150 will be phased out in 2015 when Intel releases Skylake. Socket 2011 will be around for another year. Ivy Bridge-E series will be released later this year. Could there be a potential Haswell-E that will also use this socket? Unknown. Socket AM3+ will likely stick around. Steamroller (2014) will also be socket AM3+. After Steamroller? Unknown. Socket FM2 will continue to exist since Richland (this year) and Kaveri (2014) will use this socket.
