Will bulldozer works on AM3 socket? - Page 5

post #41 of 47
I'm guessing that the Bulldozer chip will also have 941 pins but the FM2 chip will have 942 pins so it'll be backwards compatible with AM3+.

Edit: Just found this.

AMD plans on holding off on Socket FM2 and will retain support for Socket AM3+ up until Q1 2013.

I was correct btw.

wait a minute, isnt bulldozer backwards compatible? even i am getting confused here because amd has made every processor (all the ones i know) backwards compatible with the previous socket/chipset.

Yes it is, it's backwards compatible with AM3(most of the boards anyway) because these AM3+ chips have 941 pins. But when they launch the FM2 boards, then you can put your AM3+ chip in your FM2 board. They'll be launching their future generation Bulldozer chips with 942 pins in the Q1 2013. That's just how I understand this anyway.

I thought FM2 was going to be LGA?

Where did you see this?

They will be eventually, but not yet.

I too am hoping for a drop in upg on my 790X mobo. Gigabyte have had a beta bios up there for the past year or more. If BD does end up being compatible, 700 series boards have awesome lasting power!!
