    ASUS today announced a full range of motherboards that are ready to support the upcoming six-core AMD Phenom II X6 processors to herald a new era in ultra-powerful personal computing. The AMD six-core processor-ready ASUS M4 Series motherboards deliver maximum performance on a mainstream platform. Joe Hsieh, General Manager of ASUS Motherboard Business, said, “Besides being ready to support six-core processors, the ASUS M4 Series gives users of every level the best performance and value with its Core Unlocker feature. This has received notable recognition from many of the world’s top media organizations for delivering a phenomenal boost in performance.” M4 Series motherboards with the exclusive Core Unlocker technology have also garnered global media accolades for being the best motherboard for AMD processors.

    ASUS’ M4 Series motherboard is ready for the AMD Phenom II X6 processors. To enable six-core CPU and achieve maximum performance, users simply need to update the BIOS of their existing M4 Series.

    So there you go. If your ASUS motherboard is not on that list, it probably won't ever support six-core.

    That's great, my M4N82 deluxe is listed but I might use it on my other PC as an upgrade for it as I want a Crosshair III. :(

    Good thing I'm not a huge fan of Asus, there are absolutely no value (785G) boards on that list.

    Good question! Gigabyte boards have already begun supporting 6 cores, a good example would be the 785G UD2H that I just sold.

    That list can't be correct. ASUS has more 790FX / SB750 mobos that support AM2+ with AM3. Luckly I stick with my MSI ;)

    I don't think its true. Asus first likes support the new processors on their top range boards, and later the rest.
    For example m2n-e, it's an old am2 board (introduced in 2006 i think), still got p2 x4 support this year.

    So i expect much more mb on that list later...

    I hope my ASUS supports the new 6-core CPU. It already supports AM3 no problem.
