Default Chip Compatibility Among Motherboards


I am curious as to whether there is a motherboard out there that is compatible with both an Intel chip and an AMD one, and if there is, where might I find one?

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

well, there was one way way back, prior to current architecture. Nothing by today's standards will do that.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
