As you know, AMD is soon to release Bulldozer (4-8 core chips) next year (2011). I am wondering what does ASUS ROG have in line for AMD chipset? Will it have 2 ROG board like the 890FX chipsets this year? Or will it be more than 2? Will it ever release a m-ATX version for the new socket AM3+?

I did see that ASUS have prepared a board for the Sandy Bridge (Maximus IV Extreme).

I am really excited for next year, because of the rapid changes in technology we have today.

Thanks if you can reply.

since it's on the same socket I don't think we are gonna see a new board. Unless a new chipset arrive. Probably just a new bios to support bulldozer CPU. We are more likely to see a new board on the next AMD socket in 2012 which is supose to be a LGA socket like the opteron CPU.

Not really. Bulldozer will not work in AM3 sockets. But AM3 CPUs will work in AM3+ sockets with a bios update. It was rumor/confirmed by JF_AMD.

I don't know about AMD going LGA socket. There's no news on that as far as I know. They still want to keep it PGA.

Thanks for the reply though.

That's hard to say, last I eard about it it was on the same AM3 socket, then AMD talked about a backward compatilibity with AM3 and bios update. And now you can find info about the 3 so it's pretty hard to say. This is the original road map of bulldozer

But I may be wrong since thing can change over time.

Yeah I saw this in another forum. It had me puzzled a bit.

But then JF-AMD stated countless of time that Bulldozer will not work in AM3 sockets. Only for AM3+, then he went on saying that if it worked in AM3, AMD would've told us a long time ago.

Honestly there's too many mix tales, and its hard to believe one or the other. I'd wait till June when Bulldozer is released and then I'll decide which motherboard I'd like to upgrade *looking at you ASUS*.

BRIAN ASUS: what do u can tell us? Thx. Think, this is really mistake, we need new revision older boards with AM3+ socket for Zambezi, not classic AM3. And Il wating for 990FX AM3+ boards, will better :)

hi all,

my hope is for more than a swappable socket connection to AM3+, i'm hoping for the 900 series chipsets to appear and upgrade to all sata6 and USB3, keeping my fingers crossed, not much info out there at the moment and what there is i'm hanging on every word, very excited for BD and ASUS mobo's for BD
