Raptorlake (Intel's replacement of Alderlake) likely isn't coming out until next autumn. Supposedly the same socket but you will also have the option of a new chipset. Virtually every generation comes with a new chipset. That means you're always looking at 1.0 motherboards.

Doesn't Intel usually do 2 years of compatibility though? And IIRC 10th gen motherboards had PCI 4.0 support even though it wouldn't be available until 11th gen.  And with X570 going for 2-2.5 generations of chips it would be nice if this becomes a trend.
