At the beginning of this year, AMD had a product refresh, paving the way for a newer and more powerful Dragon platform with the 45nm 'Deneb' AM2+ processors, AMD 790GX/FX chipsets and Radeon HD 4800 series graphics cards.
Enter the Dragon AM3 platform, AMD made another minor refresh with the launch of quad core AM3 processors and AM3 boards supporting DDR3 memories. It is nice to note that these new AM3 processors are backward-compatible with the older AM2+ boards so you need not splash out additional money to get a new motherboard for it.
