Derbauer made a video on how things work. He has some inside information and clearly explained that :
1. The chipset is not as important as a decade ago. It acts more as a hardware validation process nowadays. This was defined by INTEL and the chipset will verify if the processor is allowed to execute certain things. In this case, the chipset knows this type of overclock is not allowed yet Asrock has bypassed this. Not in the terms agreed between Intel and Asrock.
2. Motherboard manufacturers aim at making profit and for them x% extra on a certain motherboard is not as relevant as their whole line-up. Therefore, Asrock will need to comply as their whole product portfolio is in danger. We know what happens to companies that get shafted by other companies.
3. Contrary to popular demand, new sockets are more cost effective for motherboard manufacturers as they do not have to spend the manpower on maintaining older generations. Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte favour INTEL's strategy and documents have leaked where they are actually begging INTEL to release new sockets.
