Hi!
I want to buy a Asus M4A79T Deluxe motherboard, but in the specs this motherboard suports HT up to 3.0 and the news talking about the next phenom II X4 950 HT is 3.1. This is correct? And if is correct i'll loss power this processor?
Thanks for more informations.

There isn't a 950, I think it was cancelled. Watch for the Socket am3 945 and 955 instead.

Thanks for your reply.
But it will be compatible with the 3.0 HT Asus M4A79T Deluxe? or i'll loss power this processor?

Are you sure that your not confusing the HT spec for the CPU Clock speed..... the Phenom II 950 CPU before it was cancelled was reported to be a 3.1Ghz CPU...

Whereas the 955 that replaces it is reportedly a 3.2Ghz CPU..

I just wonder if you have mistaken the 3.1Ghz Clock speed as being HT 3.1 spec...???

kazgirl, thanks for you reply.

I know that the 950 was canceled and will be launched the 955, the information of the Hardwood.
I am not confusing the HT with the clock of the processor, but as the motherboard is compatible with processors with HT of 3.0 and would like to know if there will be compatibility problems with the 955.

Hi again Yokomizo...

AFAIK know there wouldn't be any compatability issue at all... the added bandwidth that HT 3.1 will bring increasing the total from 2.6Ghz/5200 effective, from 3.2Ghz/6400 effective won't have that much significance at all...

The CPU probably supports HT3.1 though if you look at the PII 940 as an example.... that currently has support for HT 3.0 which allows up to 2.6Ghz/5200 effective HT, however the stock setting for the PII 940BE is to run at 1.8Ghz/3600Mhz effective which is well below the max that is currently available with HT 3.0, let alone the increased speed of HT 3.1, so I really think that it won't be a compatability concern at all....

In all likelihood the 955 will have a stock HT speed of 2.0Ghz maybe even 2.2-2.4Ghz... but still won't be using all of the bandwidth that is currently available using HT 3.0.

At least this would be my guess, there aren't currently any HT 3.1 mobos available as far as I am aware...!!! So the 955 upon luanch will have to be used using HT 3.0 anyway, at least until a HT 3.1 motherboard is released... but it won't be a similar situation as when Phenom was released and being used on AM2 mobo's that only had HT 1.0, as that was limiting the HT speed of the CPU to 1000MHz when at stock on an AM2+ mobo it would be at 1800-2000Mhz...

However currently Stock HT speeds for Phenom II's seem to be around the same 1800Mhz-2000Mhz, this may increase with the introductin of HT 3.1 it remains to be seen I suppose..!!

Certainly will be interesting to keep an eye on....!!
