I run an Opteron 1389 in a Gigabyte AM2 board. It is not supported. It works. Do I get the best performance? I don't know. Do I get all the features? I don't know. If it stops working, who can I call? Nobody.
Not making any claims about any manufacturer regarding BD in AM3, just that some may find that while something works, that does not mean it is optimal.
My biggest concern is someone who puts a BD in an AM3, doesn't get exactly what they hoped for and then starts badmouthing AMD.
And you KNOW it will happen. It always does.
Yup, agreed. Unfortunately people were already doing that with the tardiness of the CPU.
Me? I'ma laugh my butt off when BD turns out to be better than that Sandy they went after cause they were too impatient to wait it out. An I'll be upgrading using my Board.
Can't be mad at the Proc manufacturer when I already know what the limitations will be. Hopefully ASUS works hard to get the rest working smoothly. If not... "Oops, my bad
color me embarrassed"...
But I just want you to know that you're appreciated round here.
