I honestly believe it will be fine with the revision 1. There is a uk forum where I am a member but very rarely post due to the total intel bias and I have just had a quick nose through the piledriver discussion. Very positive response to this release and all the blue crowd seem to think bios updates will come or not be required as its the same architecture reworked. We shall see.

I am afraid to say FX 8350, 8320 couldn't support the M5A97 EVO, M5A99X EVO, or the Sabertooth 990FX motherboard.

Wait a minute! This lady probably is not telling truth!
SUPERKAMES has M5A97 EVO rev.1 and his test FX-8350 worked perfect with older BIOS - he posted proof here:

well that was a m5a97. So i guess only time will tell. And i doubt that she was lying probably mis-informed as i get different answers from tech support often. I guess we wil lhave to wait but it kinda sucks as i was going to order one when it was new and the price was down. I saw it pretty cheap a few days ago.

If a cheaper mobo supports Vishera with old bios then I think you can hope for the best in case of the Sabertooth smile.gif

I just received 100% confirmation from a guy at ASUS that Vishera support was added with the latest bios update, even though it isnt listed as such. Bios version 1503.

My processor wont be here till Thursday so I will get personal confirmation then



This is the info I received from ASUS:

the funniest part about this whole deal was i used to exact bios config i had with my 8150, which was 24/7 @ 4.85ghz, and i upped the multiplier.
here's the kicker to this story.. my bios are currently at 1402, which is 3 bios updates BEHIND what it should be; 1605. the motherboard booted up no problem, detected it no problem and booted up windows 7 no problem thumb.gif
quick screen:

hope so 2 ! if not i never buy asus again , AMD said all 990fx chipsets would be supported and on asus website the low level M5A88-EVO shows support for PD ,just doesnt make sense to me to support PD on a revised 880 chipset and not on a rev1 990fx sabertooth
