post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
According to this article, MSI was to release several FM2+ motherboards which would be "available by the middle of next month" (written Sept.24).

Anyone know what happened or if they are available somewhere? I haven't found any.......

Haven't seen a hint of it but saw a similar article. My guess is wait another week, I don't see any events coming for launch though frown.gif

The actual source: http://www.msi.com/news-media/news/1598.html

available in Europe I think (heise is a German "pricegrabber" site)

Kaveri = Steamroller. It slots into these FM2+ (A88X, A78 ... A55 is not FM2+ exclusive so there will be confusion) motherboards and has full HSA (with all the features such as hUMA, hQ, etc.)

Carrizo (Kaveri successor) is supposed to slot into FM2+ also but I think there will likely be a FM3 chipset to support DDR4 in 2015 (sort of similar to how AM3 CPUs were supported by AM2+ but lose DDR3 support, AM2+ CPUs don't work in AM3 due to lack of DDR3 controller on die, AM2 CPUs also supported in AM2+ ala Trinity in FM2+ ; AM3 CPUs work in AM3+ ; AM3+ works in AM3 provided decent VRM + BIOS update).

That would be way too late to just change it in a month new testing designing manufacturing and qc would be needed. These boards are planned in advance, as is the Ic on the current apus

Yes, those links worked - However, I'm not sure we're on the same page AlphaC - you said
