Topic sorta covers the basic question.
If I have an Asus M4A89TD, I know that Asus released a bios upgrade that allows you to use AM3+ processors inside of it (The motherboard didnt originally support it).
Will this BIOS upgrade cause the am3+ processor to be slower than just getting a motherboard that supports it without a bios upgrade?
