Vishera FX-8350 Mobo Compatabilty

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I presently have an Asus Sabertooth 990FX. I sent an email to ASUS last week asking if there were any compatablity issues between the 990FX and the FX-8350. Here's an excerpt from their answer:

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service

My name is Carter and it's my pleasure to help you with your problem.

Sorry for the delay.
According to the CPU Support SABERTOOTH 990FX, I am afraid to say it doesn't support this AMD Vishera FX-8350 CPU.

If you continue to experience issues in the future, please do not hesitate
to contact us.

Best Regards
Carter

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************

So, according to the above reply, The Asus the FX-8350 is not AM3+ compatable. From what I read on the Wiki it's supposed to be okay:

Vishera FX-series CPU - Desktop Performance market (Volan platform):[33]This FX-series features 4, 6 and 8 Piledriver core CPU models; with Turbo Core 3.0 while using the existing Socket AM3+ format and 9xx series motherboard chipset of the 1st generation FX-series Zambezi processor. AMD says that this 2nd generation FX-series processor will offer up to 20% to 30% better performance increase under digital media workloads. Vishera will continue to use a dual-channel DDR3 memory interface.[34][35] The 2nd generation FX-series is set to be released on 23 October 2012 with the FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 and FX-4320 CPU models.[36]

I'm wondering if "Carter" knows what he's talking about? What do you guys think?

Thanx,

Tom D.

FX-8350 is a AM3+ processor. With a high end motherboard like the Sabretooth I am 99% sure they will release a BIOS update making the FX-8350 compatible. Just because a processor is AM3+ doesn't necessarily mean it will support every AM3+ processor - the BIOS needs support for the processor in order for the processor to function correctly. AMD is releasing new motherboards with a newer chipset along w/ the release of the second generation FX processors as well.

The man you spoke too was simply stating that AT THIS CURRENT TIME the Sabretooth does not support the 8350. I am sure by the time they are released they will release a BIOS update for that board.

With the 990FX wait for the new BIOS release, it will sure support them!

End of the month. I'm sure there's nothing to worry about. ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and ASrock are very good about releasing updated BIOS's for motherboards so that they support newer processors. THINK about it this way.. ASUS/ASROCK/MSI/GIGABYTE P67 motherboards where given BIOS updates to support Ivy Bridge processors - so why wouldn't they release updated BIOS their 990FX boards to support Vishera??? Trust me - history repeats itself and history shows that manufacturers like ASUS release BIOS updates to support new processors upon release. Think of all the AM3 motherboards that where updated to support AM3+ processors...No need to worry at all.

Don't look into the answer you got as any sort of yes or no... Literally what that guy did was go to the supported cpu's page for your motherboard, didn't see the processor and replied with a nope.

900 series boards will have vishera support, i'd bet my reputation on it.

Benchmarks?? There's no real credible benchmarks for FX-8350 at this time. Their is supposed to be a 15% performance increase from Bulldozer - from what i've read online it's going to be on par with Intels 2500K (Core i5)

It'll be a boost. Trinity's piledriver cores are about 15% faster clock for clock over Bulldozer even without a L3 cache. So it should be at least that much better. thumb.gif
