Should be compatible as long as the socket is the same. So, I'm not sure about old motherboards, but an entry level motherboard from AMD (a-series motherboards) would have trouble handling a Ryzen 7 (Equivalent to an i7) So you may want to see if the chip set can handle an i7. My guess would be yes.
