this is a moot point because the board makers make you aware of any and every limitation your chip will have by being put into a older socket. if you cant live with it then YOU buy the new board. there are many that can live without the extra "features", like during the AM2, AM2+, AM3, and AM3+ eras


Modularity of computer components is what makes building fun. I'm guessing you'd advocate binding GPUs to platforms too?

I had bad experience with older mobo's/new chips in the past. E6600 to Q6600 on 780i, lack of GTL voltage that ruined stability. Sandy to Ivy on Z68, no PCI-E 3.0 and native SATA6, I think. Off the top of my head.

I used AMD exclusively from classic Athlon 700 until 4800+ and after that never touched anything AMD so I'm not familiar with AMD sockets.

My point was that if AMD or Intel are capable of prolonging a the packages life then they should instead of going for obvious cash grabs
