Re: Bonjour, Les socket AM4 sont-il rétrocompatible avec les processeur AM3+ ?

Need to post your answer in English since this is a English Only AMD Forum.

No, you can't install a AM3+ CPU on a AM4 Socket. It is not compatible.

Here is an answer from Tom's Hardware: AM3+ CPU in AM4 Board - [Solved] - CPUs - Tom's Hardware

No AM4 is a different socket. You will need a Ryzen CPU.

HERE IS A BETTER EXPLANATION FROM AN OLD AMD THREAD HERE AT AMD FORUM: Can we use the AM3 processor on AM4 motherboards?

No Ryzen CPUs only work in a AM4 socket because of the pin count difference.

Also a AM3+ socket only supports DDR3 RAM while the Ryzen CPU requires DDR4 RAM.

Socket AM4

1331 pins (Socket)

Socket AM3

941 pins (Socket)

938 pins (CPU)

Socket AM3+

942 pins (Socket)

938 pins (Socket AM3 CPU)

940 pins (Bulldozer Based CPU)
