amd 990fx NB

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i read a post on OCN about the FX9590 and FX9570, and somebody posted that they will only work on 990FX and up NB. My question is, is there a step up from the 990fx, because i thought that was the latest NB out for amd

I dont see why they would not work with lower end motherboards. Theres no difference between 970 and 990 motherboards other then more pci lanes and a higher HT speed which allow for dual graphics cards.

I think what people mean by saying they will only work with 990fx motherboards is that lower end motherboards might not have the right VRM's to allow for the higher TDP.
