Will the next chip release(after refresh) fit on Z87 boards?

Go to solution Solved by CoolBeans,

Next consumer grade will be on 1150 and will work with Z87, Intel does a tick tock, so dye shrink then new socket

Is that something we simply will not know until release?  It's a completely new chip right?  Sorry for the noob question.

So Broadwell and Skylake will be backwards compatible with current generation's Z87 boards?

no it wont, he ment with Z87 boards, not Z97,

 

skylake will be compatible with broadwell, but broadwell and skylake wont be compatible with Z87.

What you mean their ''tick tock strategy?''

The time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted time.

Ya, sorry the next mainstream revisions (Haswell refresh on) are not compatible with z87 platform. The difference is mostly from a different VRM arrangement on the CPU die.

no, youre wrong

 

the haswell refresh will have the same 1550 socket and thus be compatible with Z87, its just like Z67 and Z77....

Slylake isn't the next chip though

 

So there will be a refresh release, a broadwell release, and then a skylake release(the biggest jump in chipsets?).

I could go on with a lot more sources but I think this image says it all:

It may well be that the the Haswell refresh is also supported by z87 but if you are going to buy new, why get z87 at all? Broadwell is going to be compatible with z97 as well. If you already have a z87 board and a current gen Haswell chip then getting a haswell refresh really doesn't seem worth it either.
