[PCGH.de]Cebit 2011: MSI features Bulldozer-enabled AM3-Mainboards and Bios Update - Page 8  

post #71 of 106
I just cant see it happening. There may be one or 2 boards that are being updated that will have support to hold a 942 cpu, but no way us with regular 941 pin cpu sockets are gonna be able to drop a 942 pin cpu in there.

It's a shame because Sandy Bridge isn't that expensive and if Bulldozer is even decently close Intel can just release 2300k's or something and kill them, or even just lower prices.

Intel Prices have come down and I'm done buying AMD just because they are cheaper. If people are going to have to buy a new board anyway why even bother with AMD. Bulldozer can't be that much cheaper then SB when they first come out, so they should have given current AM3 users an easy option.

I would buy Bulldozer if it wasn't up to par with an i5/i7 IF I can save 140 on the board. Obviously we have known AM3+ was coming, but they should have had those out months ago.

Hurray!

Hopefully.

I hope this is true, simply because all the people selling off their used X6 processors to get a bulldozer means I might be able to get an awesome deal on a used X6.

I do not believe this, it did not come from AMD directly AND it is a translation of a third party.
post #76 of 106
Well, one thing's for sure: 800 series boards with Bulldozer support are coming.
Linked to this article (very hard to find link, it's the small magnifying glass icon under the photo of the mobo) is a gallery full of pictures of ASRock 800 series boards claiming Bulldozer support.

If we can get a proper translation of this article from an OCN member who speaks dutch, I think we'd be good.

I still want to get rid of this piece of trash mobo I have though. You can count on me replacing my mobo once BD is here.

While I believe there may be 800 series boards that support bulldozer in the future, that does not mean...

1) Bulldozer is a AM3 CPU
or
2) People can drop bulldozer into the board they own now

Those 2 key issues JF cleared up nicely in the Bulldozer blog thread (below).

There was no grey.

I believe that any data not coming from AMD should not be taken at face value.

Ask yourself this: Why, if there was somehow a way to make it work with AM3, would we not have said that a few months ago when we made the statement? Why would we take the heat from angry AM3 users if it would work? Think that one through for a minute.

I'm pretty sure MSI slapped "AM3+ support" on their 890FXA-GD65 for a good reason, despite the AM3 socket on it and not AM3+. They probably would've caught that before release if it was a mistake, because they seem to be very AM3+ aware at the moment.

I am not really trying to argue with you. I don't have insider information or anything, but JF's words speak pretty loudly. And he is as inside as you can get.
