Thread: 890GX Extreme3 bios update for bulldozer cpu ?

    Default 890GX Extreme3 bios update for bulldozer cpu ?

    Hi, i have checked the cpu support list for the 890GX Extreme3 here ASRock > Products > Motherboard Series Extreme3 and i noticed that it is able to support the Phenom 965BE, which is a 140W cpu, as well as support for 6 core thuban processors, so i was wondering why this mainboard hasn't had a bios update so as to be compatible with the new "bulldozer" cpu.

    I understand that the new chip requires an am3+ socket and this is only an am3 board, but it appears as if there are other am3 boards that have been afforded a bios update so as to be compatible with bulldozer. Is there a technical reason for this or is it simply a matter of patience ? Also of concern is that on the main motherboard page, the 890GX Extreme3 doesn't appear to be listed even under the am3 boards section.

    So, is this a sign that the board is to be discontinued, or is it simply an oversight ? Any information regarding the matter would be gratly appreciated.

    Thankyou for your time and should it be forthcoming, your asistance.
    Regards SifLord
