Backwards compatibility?
Yes, albeit this is up to the motherboard manufacturer and not AMD.

Your motherboard will support it with (an experimental) BIOS update from ASUS. However, using an AM3+ CPU on AM3 board won't be AMD supported; similar to how core unlocking or overclocking isn't AMD supported anyway.
