From the article,

"Furthermore, the new Pinnacle Ridge family will remain compatible with the AM4 socket as AMD has already stated that they plan to stick with AM4 for a long time. It’s possible that even Zen 3 processors will be compatible with a updated revision of the socket while allowing backwards compatibility with older (by then) Zen 2 and Zen based desktops chips."

 

It's an unreleased product, your information is as good as ours.

From the article I think that Zen 2 will be compatible but with Zen 3 they will release Am4+ socket, so Zen 3 won't go into current boards, probbably  on revision boards.
