Can Intel Motherboard Use AMD Processor?

All CPUs require a compatible motherboard—there’s no way to put an AMD CPU in an Intel motherboard or vice versa, just like you can’t put a Ryzen CPU in an older socket AM3+ motherboard

Intel and amd are the company major in manufacturing computer main board. It is said that people want to change their CPU from intel to amd, so they found that there are some problems using their Intel chip on AMD motherboards. If I could be lucky enough, with E5200, i heard you could only use the 865 chipset.

A much cheaper option would be to buy an old via vt8231 or 82x chipset motherboard that wasn’t so popular when it was first released back around the time when Via and intel were sharing similar chipset designs due to a mutual investment. these boards have an identical socket, so you’d just need some sort of cpu adapter which is already available online in a variety of sizes from tiny to enormous, i think as long as it fits on the motherboard with the holes aligned for the pin sockets then it’s probably worth it.

Can intel motherboard use AMD processor

Anybody can tell me if it’s true or not?

As long as the socket type is identical (intel 1156/1366 vs am2+), then it would be possible to fit an amd cpu onto something like an x58 board by changing all the components around it. from the looks of it, amd/ati make their own boards that are already compatible with their chips instead of using intel motherboards and replacing everything themselves.

You are definitely right about ati/AMD making their own boards, although I think it would make more sense to simply drop the integrated northbridge and use an independent chipset like nforce2 or sis 661fx, but then again via never made anything with graphics and AMD were always looking for a new market without much success in finding one (Radeon 9200?).

recommend checking out an old system guide from around 2001-2002 they have some good beginner motherboard recommendations for pretty much everyone. god bless google image search 🙂

Gigabyte is probably sturdiest brand on the planet when it comes to motherboards. The only Intel mobo that I’d say could take a direct hit from a meteor is the super-expensive workstation boards, but I’ve never heard of any desktop Intel mobos that suffered from failure.
