AM3 Phenom II 940?
Jan 1, 2010, 10:20 PM
Hey Guys, I'm doing my Science fair tests again, however, this time, despite the fact that both my motherboard and CPU are AM2+, CPU-z says:
Am I right, or did AM3 Sockets for the Phenom II 940 come out and I just didn't notice?

It is still called the Socket AM3, as it is AM3, it's just that AM3 CPU's drop into AM2+.

Yeah, but the Phenom II 940 is an AM2+ CPU I thought.
Phenom II X4 945 vs Phenom II X4 955
I5 or phenom II x4
Phenom II X3 720
AMD Phenom II X4 945
Is the Phenom II X6 Compatible with the K10n78 Motherboard?

CPU-Z does that sometimes... I have a notebook with a Turion Neo X2 proc and it doesn't display the code name or fabrication process correctly.
