Intel replaces sockets often. It's not a problem for most and the rest accept it. After all, motherboard features age faster than CPU performance.No. Even at 3 generations (Zen, Zen+ and Zen) it would be much greater than what Intel has been doing for almost 8 years
Right from the beginning we were told that AM4 will last for few years and will also work with a future revamped architecture on improved semiconductor process (i.e. more cores, higher clocks etc)
It was meant to be a big jump in performance.
Until now we got 2 generations: Zen and Zen+, the latter being just slightly faster and a bit more polished. That's hardly different from what Intel is doing.
Zen 2 is rumored to be problematic. Zen 3 seems very unlikely.
So in a fairly probable scenario AM4 will be compatible with... 2.5 generations...
Intel, MSI, Asus etc...Just stop trying to find flaws with everything AMD does and justify everything devlish Intel and it's beaouches (MSI, Asus etc) been doing
Keep going and soon you'll be butthurt about so many companies that you'll have problems assembling a whole PC...
