My System Specs

Default 790Gx - HTT 3.1 and 45nm Phenoms.

AFAIK the 790GX/SB750 combo motherboards that are out emerging on the market now ARE compatible with the upcoming 45nm Phenoms. However, other than this article : techPowerUp! News :: HyperTransport 3.1 Specifications Emerge, 45 nm AMD CPUs Support it
Does anyone know if these 790GX boards will for sure support the new Hypertransport 3.1 specification?

"Should" isn't all that reassuring. I'm hoping to upgrade in the next couple weeks and will need a board that supports the 45nm AM2+ Phenoms and hopefully their successors, the AM3's. It seems that most sites agree that the bandwidth won't be a problem but whether or not a bios upgrade will be necessary/possible is up in the air still. I'll have to keep thinking about it and searching for more news.
