BIOSTAR Readies New AMD FM2+ Socket Motherboards

BIOSTAR is preparing a series of motherboards based on the new AMD FM2+ socket design. This is a revision of current FM2 APUs, both FM2+ & FM2 APUs can work on any FM2+ motherboard, chipsets include A88X, A78 and A55; however, FM2+ APUs cannot work on existing FM2 motherboards due to different pin sockets ( A85X, A75, A55 chipsets).

In other words, the new AMD socket FM2+ motherboards will retain backwards compatibility with previous generation Socket FM2 APUs. BIOSTAR's new line of FM2+ APU motherboards is a great choice for users who wish to reserve the opportunity for future upgrades while taking advantage of AMD's new FM2+ infrastructure. The new BIOSTAR FM2+ socket boards are backwards compatible with the older generation APUs and are already in production. These boards will proudly show off BIOSTAR's in-house technology, such as audio, power regulation upgrades and more?

Opposite of AM2/AM3?

I thought the idea was that you didn't have to buy a new motherboard if you wanted to upgrade you processor.
