Unless I am misunderstanding you, I think that is wrong.  Since they
use Socket 940, they are a drop-in replacement for "regular" chips.
All that might be necessary is a BIOS upgrade (and kernel 2.6.12).

    One of the most-talked-about features of AMD’s dual core product
    line has been its drop-in compatibility with existing Socket 
    939 / 940 motherboards.  Now that products are actually launch-
    ing, AMD has reiterated that motherboards based on Socket 939 
    and 940 should be able to handle a dual core replacement once 
    the BIOS is flashed to recognize the new processor.
