BIOSTAR Announces AM3 CPU Compatible Motherboard List

BIOSTAR has released a partial list of its existing motherboards that will support the upcoming 45nm desktop processors by AMD. The list includes all of its current motherboards based on the AMD 7-series chipsets, NVIDIA nForce 700a series and GeForce 8200 MCP. BIOSTAR has made available the appropriate BIOS firmware for each of the motherboards in the list, that expands the CPU support. Interestingly, BIOSTAR comments on the TDP rating system AMD is about to adopt. It says that 45nm AM2+ processors carry TDP ratings of 125W, while equivalent (drawn from inference) AM3 45nm CPUs carry 95W ratings. Visit this page for links to the BIOS updates and other details.

I wish we could get a price list on several of the boards coming out for Phenom II. I may be jumping ship in January or February, and give AMD another shot.

I agree Paulieg a price list would be nice.

Id like to see Asus revamp their list and include the M3a32MVP deluxe Wifi on there (or the whole M3a32 series)

Gigabyte has my current board on there but Im really wanting to give this board a shot that I got from eRocker.

+1 on that, it seems that support for SB600 boards is being dropped by some manufacturers, Asus and Biostar should be ashamed of themselves, if Giga can do it so can they.
