Default AM3+ CPU ready motherboards support list

ASUS, ASRock and Gigabyte announced that some of new revised AM3 motherboards with current chipsets will support AM3+ Bulldozer CPUs through future BIOS updates. Unfortunately with current chipsets mean that some features like Bulldozer power management and VCore will be disabled, you will need to wait for new AMD 900 series chipset to unlock all features.

If the motherboard you bought recently come with a black socket AM3b with 1 extra pin then you will know this mean AM3+.

That's pretty nice for recent AM3 purchases. I guess it's no big deal if the power management features aren't supported, as long as it runs the chips.

So I guess the sources were right that AM3 wouldn't support AM3+, but apparently new boards shipped with the AM3+ socket and will provide support (albeit not complete support) via a BIOS update later. The pin layout differs on AM3+/AM3 by one pin though, so it should be apparent to some users when the chip doesn't fit. Otherwise, this could get really confusing for first time system builders lol.



(AM3+ left, AM3 right)

Notice the upper right block has 2 pins blocked on AM3 and 1 pin blocked on AM3+

Seems that the sockets are going to be black to. It's not hard for the manfactures to leave an extra socket pin. Might be why all the high end boards will support am3+. Amd covers it back by saying it's not going to work. This will be due limited amount of boards that can support it and people don't rush out and get any am3 board.

Yes it seems to be only the newest revisions. Check your socket in your manual. If it says AM3 then it probably won't support them. If it says AM3b, then it probably will (see my post above).

I doubt your first revision board will support the chips.

You might be lucky only way to find out is to inspect the socket and see the pin layout.

You know what it is am looking to get a AM3 system with a motherboard that supports AM3+ but can't find any motherboards with the black socket and no information on revision of the board.

I don't know how it is in the UK, but here in the States there are a few AM3+ boards available.

Well looked about there are none, Did see some ASUS board none of which are in stock, i have noticed a decline in AM3 boards, i think they are getting rid of them for the AMD 9xx boards
