Phenom, incompatible with existing AM2 motherboards?

This is more or less what has to be concluded from reading the articles currently published about the compatibility (more supposed than real) between the new AMD 4-core processor and the existing AM2-socket motherboards. But it seems that AMD will have to be a little more patient.

This is not a very good omen for the financial come-back of Intel’s main competitor that is still depending a lot of this year’s launch of 3- and 4-core processors.
