Has any manufacturer ever produced a motherboard with both AMD and Intel compatible sockets? Yes, on the same board. Or with some sort of hybrid socket that can somehow adjust to handle either AMD or Intel CPUs? I would presume that would require the two different chipsets, as well. The different types of CPUs haven't been chipset compatible since the Socket5/7 days.

There was one that I recall but it made use of a daughter board for a different cpu and yes there were 2 different chipsets. They did not use the same socket for each cpu. http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1829


I have not ever seen one of those in use.
