Biostar FM2 Motherboards Now Support AMD Richland APUs

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 6 comments

With the appropriate BIOS and driver update, Biostar's full range of FM2 motherboards support AMD's "Richland" APUs.

AMD's "Richland" APUs might not be arriving until June 2013, but Biostar has nonetheless decided to release a driver and BIOS update on its website that will ensure its full range of FM2 socket motherboards will be fully compatible with the upcoming next-generation chips.

As we have noted earlier, Richland will initially come to the market with four SKUs: the A10-5750M, A8-5550M, A6-5350M and the A4-5150M.

    When I built my fm2 desktop I went with the cheapest chip I could (A4) just so i could get one of the new A10s. Hopefully it is worth the wait.

    Looking forward to the benchmarks for this generation. Although, I am not sure why you decide to mention the laptop SKUs in this article as those chips don't even pertain to this headline.

    I believe that's 65w :)  But, you are more correct than you realize :lol: 

    I've got a 65w A10-5700, and under 100% load it seldom wanders past 41-42w.
