Wait a Minute AMD…
Despite what you may have read many AM3 motherboards will indeed be compatible with AMD’s new Bulldozer CPU. AMD’s Bulldozer is set to release in late quarter 2 of 2011 (or early Quarter 3).
This information we have received is confirmed bythe ASUS AM3+ Ready website which gives a list of various 8 series Am3 motherboards which will indeed be compatible with AM3+ technology following a bios update.
Similar information has been found on the Gigabyte Website which has now included an AM3+ ready sticker with certain 8 series AM3 motherboards.
Should You Upgrade Now?
If you’re looking to upgrade your PC now and can’t wait for Bulldozer’s release, then we suggest you take a look at the AMD 1090T CPU along with an AM3+ ready Motherboard. At least this way you’ll be able to eventually switch to the Bulldozer and in the meantime enjoy 6 core performance.
