AMD Ryzen since its emergence, in addition to their own quality, AMD conscience has been using the AM4 interface is also a factor that can not be ignored, the second half of this year’s 4th generation Ofdragon CPU (Zen3 architecture) is likely to continue to be retained. Although Intel also continued the LGA1151 interface in the mainstream desktop, it can only be shared between two generations, that is, 6/7 generation Core motherboard, CPU mash-up, 8, 9 generation Core because of the interface definition changes, must support the new motherboard.
At the same time, 10 generationS Core adopted the updated LGA1200 interface, down compatibility is nonsense, only the thermal buckle most can also be universal.
Intel, however, also appears to be plotting to make a change.
According tomedia reports, the twelfth generation Core Alder Lake-S desktop processor will be replaced with the LGA1700 interface (suggesting that the LGA1200 is the fate of the two generations), and is expected to continue at least three generations (Alder Lake and the next two generations) unchanged, maintaining the motherboard forward/backward compatibility.
TPU points out that this is the second “conscience boom” in Intel in 10 years since the LGA1156 (the first generation of Core i).
Combined with the known information, Alder Lake will use the big.LITTLE architecture, the small core is The Gracemont (Atom family), and the big core is the Golden Cove (Core family).
