These are based on socket LGA2066 and these skus are compatible with Intel® X299 Chipset.
I know that a new motherboard needs to be purchased for this new processor but this is newer technology and it needs newer motherboard technology as well. I’m sorry for any inconvenience and we appreciate your time and your feedback on this thread.
