Are you upgrading before your system mandates it? Not me!

It is hard to say. But with 90% of the memory changes out there I would say NO it will not be compatable. They would most likely not have much trouble making it work with a new pin layout and a new memory controller. The main reason why AMD has not been able to support DDR2 is because of the onboard memory controller.

Who says the days of the 1GHz overclock are gone? Presler 920s are hitting 4.2-4.5GHz on air and 5.2GHz on water cooling! And they're only 2.8 at stock!!

EDIT/// SpookedJunglist, Intel's memory controller is all off chip (on the motherboard) so theres nothing to say that a Conroe or even Presler or Cedar Mill cant support DDR3, its up to the motherboard to support it. the 1 advantage to the off chip memory controller is as soon as someone makes an LGA775 motherboard that supports DDR3 or even DDR4 or RDRAM or whatever, pretty much all Intel CPUs that are LGA775 will be able to support it. So the question by Omri should have been "Will the 975x support DDR3?" and the answer to that is, no, not yet at least. All it would really take is a slight redesign of the north bridge and obviously new motherboards with the correct RAM slots.

EDIT//// I should probably say that Im a huge Intel fanboy so be sure to look at everything I say with that in mind lol, though I try to be as objective as possible when comparing Conroe/Merom/Woodcrest to Windsor/Orleans, but you have to remember, Windsor and Orleans are ONLY revisions to current San Diego and Toledo cores, they are NOT AMDs answer to Conroe/Merom and Woodcrest!! So of course Conroe will rape an FX60 and even the FX62 since it will still technically be 1 generation ahead, its like comparing a P4 Cedar Mill to an AMD Athlon XP.

What I was talking about was when they come out. If he buys one he will be most likely stuck with DDR2. I did mention above that intel will most likely design a new northbridge and a new pin arangement for it to work. Just like they did with DDR2.

nooo I wont upgrade for a while dude, MAYBE just the graphics card for dx10 but thats it, I dont have a job much less the money to buy a whole new system...I mean what I have now is fine I just need some new ram and take this to 3.0ghz stable and Ill be good to go.

wow where can i get That???? it is not like intel to go down on ghz
post #48 of 107
It would be really interesting to see how high can Conroe be pushed in terms of overclocking it and being stable and do a few benchmarks from there.

One can only wonder what kind of damge will Conroe Extreme Edition damage will do.

1,333FSB @ 3.33 ghz?

Prob nothing w a 6800GT

with x2000xtx PE x 2 & 4 GB of DDR1000- Cas3 in BF3 @ 1080p Res (1920X1080) probably look pretty dam nice.

He meant on the conroe overclocking, not on p4 65nm....
