CROSSHAIR IV = Blocked AM3+ by AMD?.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Well i read a review on toms hardware saying that AMD totally blocked the FX from working on any AM3 socket no matter what.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...fx,3043-2.html

umm i really wanted this... also performance is bad, but just kind of annoyed that they are making you buy 990FX boards or boards with the black AM3+ socket... so much for the "support from mobo manufacturers" eh.

the new socket is for higher current capacity... thats why they won't support the older boards. the older boards could possibly burn a little

After several revisions and steppings.. can't blame the manufacturers' for not trying to keep up with a failure (as sad as it is, and as much as i hate to admit it). Regardless it's still cheaper to get a top tier AMD platform, although the question to ask yourself is which would you benefit more from, a better phenom or a bulldozer.

probably a phenom is what i'll benefit from most, I was expecting much more from BD my cpu can output double the gflops @3.5 than the fx can at 4.0, (24 vs 48-50). i mean what's happening here?.

AMD is really burning bridges with this too, i was considering dropping one into my CFIV formula till I seen the reviews, just gonna grab a Thuban now I think, also blocking core unlocking as well *** AMD, unless AMD can perform some sort of miracle witha new revision then the CPU market is all are belong to intel.

sigh... why did AMD have to block it, making us pay for new boards, the mobo manufacturers are gonna get some hate imo and it wouldn't even be their fault.

AMD stated months ago that if it's not an AM3+ socket then they will not be supporting it for BD.

I can't say I've read the entire article yet, but have you actually tested the BIOS released by ASUS for this board and AM3+?

no, i was making assumptions based on what they said "FX processors will not work in an AM3-based board. AMD deliberately blocked that combination out in its BIOS"
