any motherboard that support 7th gen will not work with 9th gen

on the motherboard should support up to i7-7700k, good upgrade compare to the i3-7100
Hi rgd1101! Thnks for your answer! The problem with i7-7700k is that it doesn't support Wimdows 11. So if 9G is not supported by my motherboard i'll have to cancel my order... Thanks again fpr your help!

Cheers!

Why do you need Windows 11?
Hi! Actually, at this moment i don't need Windows 11, but i've seen some articles saying that in about 2 or 3 years, there will be no more Windows 10 updates, so I think it could possibly lead to some applications' breaking changes.

Cheers!

Hello Friends!

At the end I decide to buy a new laptop with an i7 10 Generation Processor, 16GB Ram and etc... For App development i think it fulfills my requirements, i'm not very happy with the fact that Intel i7-7700k is not supported by Windows 11. I can't use an Intel Core i7-9700K (9th Gen) on my old PC which has an Intel i3 (7th Gen) even though both processors have the same socket (socket 1151LGA) ?

I'm sorry for my bad english, thanks in advance!

Cheers!

You have a board designed for 7th gen, the fastest CPU you can drop in is an i7 7700K. I wouldn't do this however given the price of newer chips like the i5 10400/11400.

1. What do you use your PC for?

2. What sort of budget do you have available?
