Opteron CPU for compatible motherboards?
Hey guys, I just notice something that I never had the time to pay attention to. All the motherboards we are seeing (especially the one's off of Newegg) have support for the Athlon 64/FX/X2. You don't see any Opteron supported boards except for the Foxconn one. With that being said, can the Opterons be supported on those motherboards as long as they are using the same sockets? (ie, Opteron using Socket 939) Or would a BIOS update be necessary? Never dealt with server CPU's before.
