AMD CPU Socket Types and Compatibility

What are the different AMD motherboard CPU combos? Our AMD CPU socket list will show you which AMD CPUs and motherboards are compatible.

The most precise and simple method of determining which CPUs and motherboards will work together is to see if they share the same CPU socket.

If you're shopping for a new CPU and motherboard, then you can proceed straight to our AMD processor socket list below.

Want to upgrade your CPU but keep your existing motherboard? Then we'll have to identify the CPU socket on your motherboard first:

1. Download and run CPU-Z.

2. Under the default CPU tab, the "Package" field will show which AMD CPU socket you have.

Examples of AMD CPU sockets: Socket FM2 (904), Socket AM3+ (942), Socket FM1 (937)

While AM3 motherboards do not officially support the newer AM3+ CPUs (Vishera, Zambezi), some motherboard manufacturers have released BIOS update that allow their AM3 motherboards to work with AM3+ CPUs.

If your motherboard has a AM3 AMD CPU socket, then check out the manufacturer's website to see they have added AM3+ CPU support for your specific motherboard model.
