MSI AM3 to suport Bulldozer with no extra expenses - Page 4

LOLWUT?

AM3+ is supported with a Bios update for the motherboards on the list provided. If someone went out and bought the board today, there's a possibility that it has that BIOS already on there, but also a possibility that it doesn't.

It's been said that the "AM3+" sockets being released are still electronically AM3, just with a black plastic casing on the outside.

According to AMD AM3+ will be the Scorpio platform, aka 990 chipset and AM3+ socket combination.

If the socket is electronically different than AM3 then it will be AM3+, but so far these aren't.

Yeah, that was pretty stupid. I forgot that this was a topic about a link to MSI's site that showed bios updates for listed boards.

Perhaps you meant Gigabyte They're releasing boards with socket updates.

You know the difference between the AM3 and AM3+ sockets are more than just color right? The AM3+ socket has a few extra pins, granted ASUS has "confirmed" their boards have the extra pins already there but I'm not going to go on that until I see "Fully Compatible with AMD Bulldozer".

That is an expensive IF question. $300 for Formula and maybe it will work? No thanks.

Yup, I know. But that extra available pin hole means diddly squat if electronically the socket is still AM3.

just heat up a needle and make a new hole in the socket and you're good to go...

I emailed MSI for clarification. Its only the revisions of the boards with the black socket that will work.

Yes but will it work with limited capabilities or to full potential? I'm thinking it will be limited.

I think they will block the bios to avoid that workaround .
