It’s well documented that Intel’s 11th Generation Rocket Lake processors are not compatible with H410 and B460 motherboards. A new report from a Chinese forum (via momomo_us) claims that the upcoming 14nm chips might not even work on all Z490 motherboards. The author has shared some compelling evidence why this is the case. In summary, the reasons boil down to the lack of support on a chipset and BIOS level, but more importantly, the design of the motherboard’s power delivery subsystem.Chipset SegmentationThe first reason for the incompatibility resides in the chipset. Intel’s desktop 400-series family consists of six chipsets: Z490, W480, Q470, H470, B460 and H410. In a pre-Comet Lake leak, we learned that Intel had segmented the 400-series chipsets into two classifications. The Z490, W480, Q470 and H470 formed the Comet Lake PCH-H group, while the B460 and H410 chipsets belonged to the Comet Lake PCH-V group. While we never really found out the meaning for the suffix, we had presumed that the “H” represented High-Performance and the “V” meant Value. Now that we look back at the categories, it starts to make sense why the B460 and H410 chipsets don’t support Rocket Lake.As the author explained, each processor possesses… Read full this story
