Most AM2 Motherboards Not Phenom Ready

Asus M2A-VM HDMI (AMD690G)

Board revision: ?
Installed BIOS: 0302 (2007-03-12)
Upgraded with: 1603 (2007-12-04)

This motherboard is a MicroATX model, which is based on AMD's 690 chipset with integrated ATI graphics. Different from most other compact motherboards for home or HTPCs, this one comes with both D-Sub and HDMI video outputs.

Again, the BIOS update worked and allowed us to use the Phenom processor.

    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
