GIGABYTE’s new FM2+ Motherboard Range for Kaveri

G1_SNIPER_A88X

Despite the realization that Richland APUs were released less than a quarter ago, AMD is already in full swing to release the next like of APUs, called Kaveri, based on an updated version of the Steamroller CPU.  Of course a CPU is nothing without a motherboard, and with this new release we get a new range of motherboards from GIGABYTE, all using the new FM2+ socket and A88X chipset.

The FM2+ socket is designed to be backwards compatible with Trinity and Richland (FM2) APUs, however FM2 sockets are not forwards compatible.

GIGABYTE today are announcing seven FM2+ motherboards:

G1.Sniper A88X
F2A88X-UP4
F2A88X-D3H
F2A88X-HD3
F2A88XM-D3H
F2A85XM-DS2
F2A88XM-HD3

The main model in this list is the gaming oriented G1.Sniper A88X, which will offer a range of new audio features (USB DAC-UP, Gain Boost) as well as ones we have seen on the Intel G1.Sniper 5 (Haswell) like OP-AMP, special filter caps and signal separation in the motherboard.  The other poignant member of this list is the F2A88X-UP4, which features 60A power phases (IR3550) for cooler running.

130816_01Release date is expected at the same time as the AMD APUs – at the turn of 2013/2014.
