I think AM3 will actually have 939 pins, so you can't use AM2 or AM2+ CPU's in socket AM3

and AM2+ CPU's won't have a DDR3 controller, because AMD hasn't designed one yet, or at the very least not incorporated the into Barcelona or Agena.

But the AM3 CPU's will be able to work in AM2+ and AM2.

In the other post, you can forget about the price wars. Anyone notice that they're comparing the Phenom to the K8?!?!?!? WTF is that? It makes me think that it's not significantly too much of an upgrade to the K9. Confused. Oh wait, I heard that the K9 never took off because of performance issues so the K8 was reworked.

Today is yesterday's future....
