PSU & CPU generations

Hi,

Are newer PSU's OK to use on older CPU's? - I read adverts such as Haswell ready or Kaby Lake ready and figure it's got something to do with the power states etc.....but if Ii buy a newish PSU are they OK to use with Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge or the E versions or Xeon versions E3 or E5?

I figure they should be but not sure 100% - And how about if a PSU was bought in 2,3 years time would they still be good for the same old CPU's? - Thanks
