Now Richland wasn't out at the time of the release of this computer, but the motherboard supports an FM2 socket. So I should only have to replace the old APU with the new Richland APU and it will recognize the new APU correct? Or does having a prebuilt computer with a gimped BIOS end up screwing me with this upgrade? I do understand that if I get the most powerful Richland APU I may have to upgrade my PSU as well. I just want to know my options with this computer. Thank you.
As a footnote, AMD has dropped the "fusion technology" nomenclature as a result of a lawsuit from Boost Up International Limited and Arctic Switzerland AG who trademarked that word "Fusion" for their power supplies.
That's when AMD started to use the term “Heterogeneous System Architecture” (“HSA”).
