[Clubic]AM3+ CPUs on AM3 boards: it's possible! - Page 4

post #31 of 60
Very poorly handled and it's not even a major issue. Intel had a major chipset issue and they managed it like champs.

I know, right? I'm so torn between Intel and AMD right now. At least Intel tells you straight to your face "you need a new socket". Except for 1155 Ivy Bridge CPUs that won't even be released for months to come.

Bulldozer is about 2 months away and we still don't know anything official about pin count or actual CPU/Socket compatibilities except that there's a few AM3 boards that can handle the upgrade. But the "clamped" features aren't given to us at all.

The point of it is they did not remove a pin spot for nothing why make a new socket with one else pin if you don't have to. There is some reason that pin slot is open maybe its for down the road but its open for a reason. I still 100% think you all will be mad when you have to have motherboard rev.... 1.XX to put the BD chips in its going to happen.

Come on guys. Blaming AMD in this is silly and incorrect. AMD is NOT supporting BD in AM3+ period. They never have and they never will. There is a reason for that and we will find out at launch.

However, if mobo makers what to spend time hacking out a BIOS that will get it to run on AM3 then they are free to do that. AMD can't really stop them without a legal fight which benefits nobody. Furthermore, I dunno why AMD is required to tell us CPU pin counts and configurations. Did we know SB pin configs 2 months before launch?

AMD doesn't support core unlocking and yet it still works. Go figure.

I think Intel released physical specs for Sandy Bridge 6 months before release. I remember reading about it mid summer of last year.

Edit:
Not exactly pin counts and junk but still physical specifications on what will or wont fit.

I sold my 890FX when they said you'll need a AM3+ mobo...

Proof that came directly from Intel? I don't remember seeing that. If you are talking about rumors well then we have plenty of those about BD too.

Just link me anything regarding physical specifications on Bulldozer

Or here's another site, same article:
