When will the new AM3+ ROG board debut?

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.

never can be AM3 socket compactible with AM3+ socket, who wrote above link and info? 😕 Now are many people in mistake
Who knows me, knows me ;)....AMD 3000+, AMD x2 4600+ EE, AMD X4 955 BE C2,2x AMD X4 965 BE C3, AMD X4 970 BE C3, AMD x4 975 BE, AMD x4 980 BE, AMD X6 1090T BE, AMD x6 1100T BE, 2x AMD FX-8120, 2x AMD FX-8150, FX-6300, FX-8300, FX-8320E, FX-8320, FX-8350, FX-8370, FX-8370E, FX-9370, FX-9590, AMD A8-3850, AMD A8-3870K, A8-5600K, A10-5800K, A10-6800K, A10-7850K, A10-7870K, A 5150, Athlon x4 860K, Intel i7-5960X, i7-6700K, Intel i7-4770K, Intel i7-980x, Intel i7 2600k, Intel i7-3770K, i7-3930K.

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
