at Tom's Hardware. The new CPUs will fit previous 939 socket boards which AMD moved away from. The current manufactured 65 nm production process will drop to a 45 nm process in 2008 and even these later processors, out probably in 2009, will be compatible with 939 pin boards. TC. click here

I understand the Phenom is OK with both AM and AM2 mobos. As I have a Gigabyte AM mobo with an Athlon x 2 3800, Nvidia 7600 GT I might be tempted if I could be really convinced of a Games improvement. Any views anyone

As tigertop2 states OK with AM and AM2 sockets unfortunately dont think it will come out for socket 939 mores the pity.
