you would need an AM2+ or AM3 motherboard

*best place to check for compatible CPU is your motherboard's manufacturers web site

But...

I got it from Techspot.com...

"Like the Phenom range, the Athlon II X4 620 is capable of operating on either AM2/AM2+ or AM3 motherboards, and thus inherits the ability to use DDR2 or DDR3 memory. This could arguably be a way to provide users with a viable upgrade path a few years down the track, but for most the case will be about picking up the cheapest and best performing parts today."

Is it true..?

they correct but those are two motherboards not three

AM2/AM2+ motherboards and AM3 motherboards, here's an example of each

AM3

AM2/AM2+

an AM2 mobo is different from the above AM2/AM2+

Is it true? it is some what.....

It really depends on the Motherboard maker if they release a new bios that supports the newer AM3 cpus.

example:

Here a jetway motherboard that has an AM2 socket but doesn't support AM3 cpus

http://www.jetway.com.tw/jw/motherboard_view.asp?produc...

And here a Gigabyte Motherboard with same AM2 socket but can run AM3 cpus

http://www.gigabyte.us/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_M...


So is it true? Yes. although if the motherboard maker didn't update the bios, then no.

warmon6 is correct. The AM2 socket does support all current AMD processors, providing the manufacturer provides a bios update to support the chip. At this point in time, only a small percentage of AM2 boards still receive bios updates. So the odds are against you. Check with your boards manufacturer for bios updates and supported cpu. If your using a machine from a big oem like Dell or HP, your probably out of luck. Those boards almost never receive support for new processors.

Ohh... i see...

The conclusion is.. All buyers depend on Motherboard manufacturer whether they had released the new bios or not... isn't that? :ange: 

Whatever... thank u to all ... :hello:
