Will bulldozer works on AM3 socket? - Page 4

post #31 of 47
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_AM3

AM3+ socket has 942 pins but BD is set to work in some other motherboards other than the 9xx chipset, the manufacturor's won't post that they would support a chip that doesn't fit the socket, As for the benchmarks lately that we have seen i don't know why people just can't wait to make a judgement till after AMD says there two cents, instead of acting like a bunch of teenage girls arguing over how big or small a guys junk is till they have seen it, redonkulus.

The extra pin might be used in the 2nd gen BD chip or they might just jump to the FM2 socket no official word on that yet.

That was my feeling as well, and why this thread has gone on as long as it has.

short version : yes
long version: yes, but you will have really bad performance compared to a 990FX board, just the bios's wont be optimised or anything, it's just test bioses i'm seeing for mine.

Of all the 7 series AMD chipset, why is the 760G the only one supported for BD?

you are correct gigabyte stated that zambezi becomes unstable on there older am3 boards, so they most likely will not be updating bios for zambezi chips.
personally I always stay with the board released for the chip.

in this case AM3+
but this also may be the end of the ZIF socket for AMD, rumors already touting BGA for next gen chips especially the apu boards.

I was under the impression bulldozer had a different pin configuration?

the socket is set up with an extra pin hole, my assumption(the mother of all mistakes that can be made)is that the chips will also have this pin, inhibiting use in am3 socket.but the am3 chip will fit in the am3+ board.
