Biostar FM2 Motherboards Now Support AMD 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.
