"The X299 chipset and its socket, LGA 2066, is only a year old, so we don’t expect X399 to use a different socket."

They might as well make a new socket, since Intel doesn't allow new chips to function in motherboards that are only a year old.

Exactly, the z270 z370 scam the 1150 1151 b.s. perfect examples though the former was especially disgusting. I want a refund for lost performance due to meltdown/spectre.

Yes, AMD should change it since Intel will taint "X399" with a platform that will only be useful for less than a year whereas AMD's will be good for 2 years or more.

Way to spread lies or just demonstrate your lack of knowledge. Intel's HEDT chipsets have always been current for multiple years.

x58: Nov 2008 - Nov 2011
x79: Nov 2011 - Aug 2014
x99: Aug 2014 - Jun 2017
x299: Jun 2017 - ? At least 2019

That's the previous 4 generations, each one lasting no less than 2 years 9 months before getting replaced.

I disagree that Z270-Z370 was a rip off by Intel. Supporting 6 high performance cores instead of 4 has to take a better set up and needed differentiation.

The slow roll out of the H and B chip sets was painful but I suspect hurt Intel more than anyone else. It would have been much better for them to have been out long before the refreshed Ryzen + line.

Now do that for Z-series and sockets. Especially the Z270 to Z370 and the new Z390 (Bonus round: Socket on all these even back to Z170 vs their CPU support). Meanwhile, AMD's plans are possible changes to chipsets (Recent X470, which was just moving from PCI-E 2.0 links to PCI-E 3.0) but maintaining the AM4/TR4 socket. The entire point was a snarky criticism of Intel's short-lived sockets and chipsets. A point which flew right over your head by taking it literally. :sarcastic:
