Gigabyte FM2+ Kaveri motherboards are in the pipeline with a press release from Gigabyte throwing their support behind the new APU with their new series of motherboards with the FM2+ socket. The new Gigabyte motherboards will support the A88X and A55 (rev. 3.0) chipsets. Here is what Gigabyte had to say about their support behind the new APUs.

“By enabling support on current GIGABYTE AMD motherboards for these new AMD A-Series APUs, GIGABYTE ensures our customers are able to take advantage of a whole new approach to PC architecture design,” commented Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “Combining the highest level of quality design with the most advanced set of features, GIGABYTE FM2+ motherboards offer the best user experience for these new A-Series APUs.”

“These FM2+ Series motherboards from GIGABYTE are the ultimate showcase for our new A-Series APUs,” said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Business Unit, AMD. “In collaboration with GIGABYTE, AMD is proud to enable a truly optimized user experience in terms of raw compute performance while creating an industry-leading visual and audio experience with the latest generation of our APUs.”

AMD Kaveri will feature HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) that allows both a GPU and CPU inside an APU to operate on the same processing level such as sharing system memory simultaneously, and AMD TrueAudio which lets the GPU side of an APU process and control all audio processing such as spatialization, reverb, limiters, and voice processing for better audio overall.
