Most AM2 Motherboards Not Phenom Ready

Foxconn/Winfast K8M890M2MA-RS2H (VIA K8M890 chipset)

Board Revision: ?
Installed BIOS: 641W1P24 (08-30-2006)
Upgraded with: 641W1P41 (10-10-2007)

Once again, the BIOS version that we found on the support website was too old to support Phenom, though the version P41, dated October 10, cannot be called outdated. All other AMD processors are supported perfectly well. The K8M890M2MA is based on VIA's K8M890 chipset with integrated graphics. This certainly isn't a powerful solution, but it was a cost-effective standard platform for AMD processors.

    too many vendors boycott the upgradebility they just dont want to release a simple bios update because they want to force costumers to buy a new motherboard. it would anger me i would have bought a am2 motherboard and the vendor was such a bastard to boycott the upgrade.today those bios updates are rare too find. so far i have only few vendors who upgrade there bios. apperently ASUS support it the best so that is why i will choose ASUS above all those cheap bastards from now on
