Works on two out of ten AM2 motherboards

 

Tomshardware took a look at Phenom compatibility and tried to test it on ten AM2 motherboards that were supposed to support it.

The results were disappointing. AMD's new quad core only worked with two Asus boards, while the remaining Biostar, Foxconn, Epox, MSI and Gigabyte boards weren't in a mood to cooperate.
