    Default Bulldozer-enabled AM3-Mainboards and Bios Update



    The boards dont use the new AMD 990FX motherboard chip, but already available chips from the 8-series (890FX, 890GX, 880G and 870).
    In addition should older Socket AM3 boards with 8-chip, which are already in use, support Bulldozer CPUs with an BIOS update. AMD told us, however, that AM3 boards, opposed to coming boards with Socket AM3 +, will not support all features of Bulldozer CPUs. What features are missing, did AMD not tell.

    Source: Translated

    So AM3 does support bulldozer

    Probably the part where the chip automatically down clocks the chip when at max frequency. I forgot what it is called. Each chip is supposed to have max frequency labele. AMD is supposed to test the chip way harder than any strsss test and the max frequency will be labeled. There is a smart function that downclocks the chip when near max TDP or instability...... Its called smart "something"
