    You all realize that AMD is also releasing new chipsets for every generation of CPUs? X370, X470, soon X570 (and of course the low-end variants).
    There is absolutely zero information if any of these chipsets are compatible or incompatible with any previous or future CPUs. All was posted here was its names. But its always easy to hate, harder to reason.

    Afterall the 9000-series Intel CPUs didn't actually require a new chipset.

    On another note, personally I have never even cared, because I don't buy a new CPU every 6 months, and when I buy one every 2 years or so, a new motherboard offers significant improvements in its feature set as well, so sticking to the old one would be silly.

    It's the norm to release new chipset with new cpu, the difference is that AMD is backward compatible while Intel is not (not anymore, used to last 2 gens). Buying a new CPU every 2 years is also silly (it's not the 90s anymore) and so does changing the motherboard for (usually) gimmicky features. The last time I though upgrading the motherboard was great was when they introduced USB3, M2 slots and maybe PCI-E 3.0, the rest is...fine but not worth upgrading.
