Solved Audio through new FM2 processor? Tags: CPUs Audio Processors Motherboards Product Last response: October 12, 2012 2:39 AM in CPUs Share heycoa October 11, 2012 4:41:45 PM Hello all, I am in the process of buying for a new HTPC build and I have a question regarding the integrated graphics on the new FM2 processors. I am planning on buying the Trinity 5800K: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... With this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Will I receive audio through the motherboard's HDMI port? Or do I need a separate sound card? Keep in mind I don't have surround sound; my ideal setup would just be to have the HTPC connected to the TV via HDMI. All assistance is appreciated! -Steve More about : audio fm2 processor heycoa October 11, 2012 8:47:12 PM bump? m 0 l Best solution InvalidError a c 116 à CPUs a b V Motherboard October 11, 2012 8:53:31 PM AFAIK, only the earliest generations of HDMI-capable GPUs did not support HDMI sound. HDMI sound is pretty much standard on all GPUs introduced over the past 4-5 years and since FM2 APUs borrow their GPU core from the HD7xxx lineup, it should support it as well. Worst case, you can add audio later.
