There are still many on this forum and many others and still claim that a socket change was necessary (even good).
It depend on CPU specs ... If more current, voltage, data flow need extra pins .... This show that support of CPU on certain socket is depend on MB builders greed .... The same goes for AMD which cut out PCIe Gen4 support for x470 motherboards ...

AMD still supports CPUs for x470, even x370. PCIe Gen4 doesn't even exist on Intel platforms. Why is it MB builder's greed when the same companies make x370, b350, b450, x470, and x570 support the almost all generations of Ryzen between them, but when making Intel boards, they lock down support? If all MB builders were trying to make the most money, then they would have almost limited the AM4 socket compabibility.

PCIe Gen 4 was removed by patch from AMD and MB makers in theory had option not apply it ... But greed was stronger. ;) If You look on x570 mb its supports only 2000 and 3000 series of CPU. Official list on webpage. The similar approach goes for any AM4 generation chipset mb, the same as for Socket 1151. Consider chipset will support only max 3 generations. Then same will happens when 4000 desktop cpu will go out, x570 will supported it, but most likely x470 not. And yes CPU will have Your favorite AM4

Intel only ever supports 1, maybe 2 generations a socket. AMD has supported mostly all AM4 processors on their motherboards. With Intel, you don't even have a choice. Stop being a fanboy, AMD's implementation of their motherboard platform is superior to Intel's.

I mention about X570 right now it supports 2 generations most likely it support 4000 desktop cpus (we find out that in the end of this year may be if Corona virus will not disturb it). I like more Intel approach about socket design all pins are in socket making more safe to transport and install cpu. If mb support 2 or 3 generations of cpu it no matter .... After 2 gens You would like to buy new mb just for sake of stability ...

Okay, for you its more convenient, but there are a lot of people who would have been a lot happier and want more CPU support for their mobos. Having pins on the CPU makes it easier to fix bent pins than when pins are in the socket, but thats also personal preference. Intel can have pins in the socket AND have multi-generation support, especially since they've been rebranding skylake for so long.

AMD didn't cut out PCIe 4.0 on x470. The motherboards couldn't consistently support it. AMD hasn't shied away from giving out features it could in the last 15 years, for the most part, so I'm betting there were plenty of motherboards with power deliver system issues.

That's kind of obvious considering that all X570 boards need active cooling on the chipset.

You're talking chipsets. We were talking sockets.

You can drop a 2009 Phenom II into a 2016 AM3+ "Bulldozer" motherboard and it works. If the manufacturer provided support, it will go the other way too. That's true for many of the high-end AM4 motherboards from 2016's Zen 1 launch too.

Socket is just mechanical connection mechanism of any mb for the cpu,. it matter only as long matters motherboard. In current discussion is about platforms not sockets (AMD claims AM4 as platform )which uses AM4 and Socket 1151. Intel by default consider only 2 CPU generations on one chipset, AMD in different generations uses one socket , but certain generation mb chipsets support only certain cpus ...
