Either keeping this for a while and going Ivy bridge or selling up now and going Sandy bridge.

And as for me checking, at the time of buying this board the reprts were still mixed about which socket would work

The only concrete information that I had seen was that slide which stated AM3 support.

AMD neither confirming or denying any didn't help, it took 4 pm's to Jf on here before I got a straight.

And if the chip requires a new socket I shouldn't have the vendor anything about support, unless certain AM3 could run it.

socket compatibility was always better done on amd.

Because karma is biatch - these days is discussed 1155 mobos compatibility between sandybridge - ivy bridge

It's not going to be any issues putting a Sandy Bridge based processor into a Panther Point chipset motherboard, as the new platform is most definitely backwards compatible with older CPUs. However, older motherboards and newer CPUs have always been a bit of an issue, although one it seems Intel is doing its best to solve this time around. However, there is a but and this but comes down to the simple point that Intel isn't releasing its cross compatibility guidelines until sometime later this quarter.

This potentially means that current board designs won't be compatible with Ivy Bridge processors. Considering that there tends to be power related design issues between various CPU generations, current motherboards might not have been designed with Ivy Bridge in mind.

I bet AM3+ processors will work in AM4 boards though..

And you notice on the 4th PM I quoted my statement that I made on the very first PM "they use different sockets"?

Would be sweet if 890FX/GX were secretly compatible. I'm sure they will have AM3
versions. What could AM3+ possibly add to that makes Bulldozer incompatible with AM3?

Forcing people to upgrade to AM3+ to use Bulldozer just puts more pressure on AMD to deliver.

Worst case is that Bulldozer is not as big as an improvement as everyone hopes so no one bothers upgrading or buying AM3+ motherboards so there's no sales = AMD are behind Intel again.

Best case is that Bulldozer is amazing and sells loads.

Bulldozer has to be a big enough improvement to warrant an upgrade but at the same time has to be faster then Sandy Bridge to stop people moving to Intel to get more performance for there money.

I don't mind having a slower CPU then the Intel guys have because you get what you pay for but it's getting to the point were I want SOME performance for my money.

It could come to point were Bulldozer releases at the same price as Sandy Bridge and performs the same, That would be bad as Sandy overclocks like a *****, Toss in native SLI support as well and the argument to stop with AMD becomes harder and harder.

Bulldozer supposedly working in AM3 motherboards was always a saving grace as it meens little out lay for more performance but that advantage has now been lost.

Less than 5% of the market will ever upgrade processors.

Forcing 95%+ of the market to take fewer features or lower performance to accommodate the less than 5% would be a major fail.
