How many threads are people going to make saying that BD will run on AM3?!

It WILL NOT RUN ON AM3!

Unless AMD makes a crippled Bulldozer specifically for AM3 with 4 pins less than the 942 it is supposed to have, existing AM3 boards will not support BD.

JF AMD just reconfirmed it will be AM3+, and MSI have their own updated boards, ASUS has denied that their 8 series mobos or CH IV will support BD, fact is BD has more pins, you expect to fit that into your socket? AM3 is out of the question they would've said it from the start. I'm not trolling, i don't like trolling but i will follow official word of mouth.

Well if JF AMD says it will ONLY be AM3+, then it must be so.

BD only runs on an AM3+ socket. Some motherboard manufacturers are producing boards that have an AM3+ socket with the old 890FX chipset. Nothing to get excited about by the looks of it.

Well since everything is still based on half truths we can only be sure when its finally released cause, as we know, AMD is holding it really "tight to its chest".

So far we know:
-MSI claims it will run on its MBs with current 8-Series Chipsets with Socket AM3 and an BIOS update, but with reduced features.
-Asrock claims it wont run on an AM3 MB, and introduces 8-Series MBs with AM3+ Socket.
- Asrock will release Socket AM3+ boards on 8-series Chipset soon.
- We have Socket 941 (AM3) and 942 (AM3+) from those 2 manufacturers, which both claim to run BD, so it may or may not need the extra pin.

Its speculated:
-That there will be 2 versions of BD.
-That it will be 50% faster than the current AMD Flagship.

I speculate:
-That BD will be an 941 pin CPU that will run on AM3 despite reduced features, depending on MB-Manufacturer support.
-That the extra pin on AM3+ is reserved for future BD-Architecture type CPUs.

What we don't know:
-When BD is finally released.
-What features will be disabled/missing on AM3/AM3+ with 8-Series Chipsets.
-How it will perform on 8-Series Chipset MBs.

Don't take me by my word.

I hear ya Gambler, I don't live with my parents or make buku $$ to be buying new systems every 1-3 years. I mean, I know supposedly computer technology ages a year every 6 months, but what I have will have to do.
