AM3+ Compatible motherboards (answer not question)

Not sure if this has been posted or not yet (didn't find anything)

Quote:
Current ASUS 890FX and 890GX series motherboards can be upgraded to enjoy the extra performance offered by future AM3+ CPUs.

have you seen anything on what AMD says about this? i read this a while ago, but last AMD said, it was going to need a new socket for more pins. and i think msi has already debuted a board with a new am3+ socket.

I'm skeptical. AM3+ is supposed to be a socket change. Bulldozer has more pins than an AM3 CPU.

UGH! Ninja'ed by Steve.

Never seen AMD comment, guess I wouldn't think Asus would make a claim like this and not back it up.

I however couldn't find a date when this bit was posted either.

Did I read some where that buldozer will come in several flavors, ie x4, x6, x8. I wonder if the pins on the x4/x6 will fit in the old am3, but the x8 will have more pins requiring the am3+ socket. thus some of buldozer will work on am3 sockets.

thats just a wild guess, I dont really understand it enough to even make a half educated guess.

since asus has released these updates, i have seen it theorized that there will be unutilized features of the new cpus on am3 boards, and that it will take an am3+ socket board to utilize the full potential of the chips.

as far as i can find, AMD has said nothing official one way or another.

I remember reading that there will be an AM3+ board with an 890 fx chipset. It will support AM3 as well as AM3+. My issue with such a board, is that you may loose feature when compared to an AM3+ board with a 990 fx chipset.

in the beginning, it was supposed to be a new socket, AM3+, which would be backwards compatible with AM3. just like the switch to AM3.

i don't believe you would lose features using the 890 chipsets, and my guess is they want to release these boards to catch the consumers thinking about changing platforms but who want to spread out the cost?

I get the feeling the flag ship 8 cores will not work with the current motherboards. However the fewer core models just might. My current MSI board says it supports the next gen as well however I bought it skeptically on that subject.

It would be nice but definitely not something to count on.

Im enjoying the Scuttlebutt. I moslty say this because Im in the Navy, and wanted to use the word SCUTTLEBUTT.

ORL, looks like you and I are guessing the same thing. Had I known this I might have gone AMD for my last build, becuse If I do go bulldozer, I'll probably go x4 or x6, I have no need for 8 cores.

Look at wording asus use they don't refer to bulldozer codename just am3+ cpu's future ones, my guess is AMD will be releasing updated models of phenom 2 on am3+ socket an this is what asus is referring to.

I am not a fan of MSI but it's better than Biostar. LOL I have been trying to get more info on Bulldozer but they won't give me specs. I did get the vibe that it beats the 1155.
Did you hear that Anand Chandrasekher resigned? He stated that Intel was to far behind AMD's APU. LOL

To be honest, I don't care what the CEO's and head honchos are doing as long as they keep making great products and keep prices fair for consumers.

What info do you guys need?

The Cpu's (total of 4 on release day) will be released on the 20th of June this year. FX-8130P FX-8110 FX-6110 FX-4110

There will be two 8 cores a 6 core and a 4 core under the Zambezi core name. The Zambezi will be replaced by Comodo wich will feature 6 to 10 core desktop cpu's.

Memory bandwidth will be supported at 1866MT/s for each cpu. Also AMD will release dual and quad core low end or budget cpu's. Likely having cache cut down or shut off cores. There is no real evidence of core unlocking at this time. Lano and Trinity Core.

The BobCat cores will be sub 10w cpu makes most likely for laptops,Mini itx platforms and such. Probably easily up to 2ghz dual cores under 1v.

We'll also see SSE5 roll out with this cpu's as well.

Most of the info on Bulldozer is speculation etc. The only thing that I know that has been verified is the cores, MT/s and size, that's why I keep trying to find out. It would be nice to have that info, but I guess it's doesn't really matter.

Here's a comparision between AM3 and AM3+ Sockets:


It appears there is only a difference of one pin between am3 and am3+. Look at the block on the upper lrft.

I just got a 890 UD3H Rev.3.1 which has the AM3+ socket on it. I have been backing up drives for over 12 hours now, so I can do a RAID5 of 4X2TB's. Hopefully I can get it up and going sometime tonight w/ the new mobo.

I'm new here so please excuse my noobness, but

I'm looking to make a computer, and was wondering how you got the AM3+ Mobo

Oh, wait
You work for Microcenter.

In that case, have any idea when the rest of us will get these?

Well the processors wont be avilible for a few months yet, so unless you want to buy a phenom, and then upgrade again a couple of months latter to bulldozer, you'll have to wait, and by then they should be availible.
