Will AMD stick with AM3+ for FX gen 3 and 4?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As the thread states will the new FX Steamroller and Excavator processors utilize the AM3+ socket? I am purchasing an FX8320 in the hope that when Steamroller is released I can just pop one of those into my board and sell the 8320.

If i am not wrong, SR will still be based off the AM3+ socket. I am not too sure about Excavator though

AM3+ has definitely served its coarse, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a new socket. Something along the lines of AM4 or another. AM3 and AM3+ have been around for way too long now, it's time for AMD to release a better and updated chipset (with a new socket). Tho with the rate that AMD's FM2 socket is going. There might not even be a AM4 socket for Steamroller. AMD could very well move their enthusiast CPU's over to a new FM3 socket that will hold both CPU's and APU's. Rumors are AMD will stick to AM3+ for Steamroller, tho no one will really know until AMD officially releases information about it.

Ok that is cool. I wanted to know because what I can find tells me SR will be a more radical improvement and then EV will just be a minor revision of SR and maybe include DDR4 support. So if I can use SR then that's cool

AMD already confirmed SR and EX for AM3+ socket, however they have hinted (not actually confirmed) newer chipsets as early as SR launch

FM2+ socket for the SR based APUs. They may actually push that back though, since they did delay the main chip. Either way, AMD is looking for FM2+ by the time EX CPUs arrive

Its a shame GHOST just killed a processor. It would have been nice to hold out on a new processor until SR or EV... My Phenom 2 was doing fine.
