I fairly certain that it would be possible for these new 6-core CPUs to drop into existing AM2+ board (obviously with a BIOS update), but there seems no reference to if they have to. If i recall correctly, the last AMD cpu roadmap I saw stated that by 2011, with their "Orochi" platform, there will only be a DDR3 controller onboard... So for now we may be "safe" with our existing AM2+ boards.
