[TPU] ASUS Launches World's First Motherboards for AMD FM2+ APUs - Page 10

post #91 of 96
I don't understand why the market for APU motherboards isn't 80% iTX and 20% mATX.

What is the point anyway with a non iTX board for APUs?

And what's the point of having 2 way crossfires on ATX APU boards *faceplam*

HSA.


If you can use all of the APU to do computing and then have a discreet card or two for the graphics, imagine the possibilities.

I was confused on this as well.. everything that has been brought to my attention though is that it will be the same as the jump from AM3 to AM3+.... the FM2+ motherboards will be backwards compatible, but FM2+ APUs will require the use of an FM2+ socket motherboard... so in short, no we will not be able to use a Kaveri in an FM2 board.
