I have a KN8 SLI(NF-CK804) motherboard with an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 4600+ according to dmidecode, but it is an older one with
no svm processor flag.

Does anyone know if this board supports the new AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2
Dual Core Processors with svm?  Are they different pinouts?

In other words, do I have to rip out the board and the CPU, or just the
CPU?

You have to change out the CPU, motherboard, and RAM.  Only the Socket
AM2 processors have the svm extension, which is a new socket and only
supports DDR2 memory (no DDR support).  So, yeah, it's not an simple,
cheap upgrade, unfortunately.
