Can Am2 Motherboards Use Ddr3?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I was wondering, will the new AM2 motherboards when upgraded with the future AM3 processors be able to run DDR3 RAM? Or will it have to be an AM3 motherboard?

Thank you for your responses, any info will be greatly appreciated.

Since they usually change the pin configuration/notch in each new memory type, to prevent compatibility problems, I would guess a new board would be required.

I don't think any info on this topic has been released by AMD. But my best guess is that a new socket will be formed and probably a different waffer size, which would make you need a new motherboard.

No. DDR3 will require an AM3 motherboard.

However, it will be possible to put an AM3 processor in an AM2 motherboard and use DDR2 memory.
