I expected Komodo to use AM3+ but that will not be the case so guess no major upgrade for my PC this year. I probably be wait until next year for FM2 motherboard and 10 core Komodo, my Phenom II 940 is doing fine at the moment.
REALLY wished AMD see common sense to cancelled AM3+ and Bulldozer months ago and push forward Komodo to Sept launch.
I mean, I think it was fortunate for AM3 owners to even get AM3+ for a little while. It's only natural that they will release a brand new socket, which will probably have a similar lifetime to that of AM3.
