Yes they will.
According to MSI, their new Big Bang Conquerer 990FX is actually a North Bridge 8xx series chipset that will support AM3+ Zambezi CPU's with a Bios update at the sacrifice of only a few minor features....
They made the announcement this week at CeBit.

Asus is supposed to be showing off their 990FX Crosshair V at Cebit any day now.
So if things follow like last year...
... as all the 890FX boards were revealed on the 5th of March at CeBit 2010, then hit the shelves in late April. So it looks like the same might happen for this year.Edited by cjc75 - 3/3/11 at 2:01pm
