Excellent News! AMD platform wins again (In terms of future-proofing) :biggrin:
Damn glad I bought a Crosshair IV Formula now, lol
from all that was said against it for a ittle while, i have my doubts lol.
if its all it takes, and is pin compatible? wow. probably only for the lower end ones though
I agree with dan..I contemplated going back to amd..and I'd this were true I would have..but of just can't see it being the case
I've also got a CHIV-F (extreme would be CHIVE? :haha: jk jk I digress).
Great news, if indeed it is true.
I was under the impression that this was not possible.
Yeah, I remember reading somewhere that there was some difference in the physical socket/pin configuration.
Everyone who does know more info is under NDA anyway, so we probably wont find out until they are no longer gagged.
Maybe someone who knows can use some code to indicate to us whether it will fit or not.
If you know just post in this thread with... "round hole + square peg"
or something strange like that.:haha:
edit: woohoo 100th post! :bananafunky:
I agree with you guys, and was surprised to see the news as well. But its TPU and they don't often post FUD... so I thought it was worth mentioning here. :haha:
has any one compared a cross hair formula and say a gigabyte? maybe the formulas socket has a few extra pin holes? worth looking imo:whistle:
i doubt it. had a little chippie on me table for a little while but no board(server/workstation) but tahts different, if memory recalls works fine today
If this is true, I'll be glad I bought an M4A89GTD PRO!
