Not as far as I'm aware - the only thing I've *heard* is that there may be a FM2+ (somewhat like AM3 vs AM3+) . That said, in general AMD is pretty good about backwards compatibility. Steamroller bases cpu's will be on FM2 and AM3+ as far as I know.
Besides, if it's just for htpc duty - a 6800k richland is more than overkill as is.
