AMD FM2 Chipsets »

Introduction


It didn't take AMD long to introduce their new APUs for the FM2 socket after launching new CPUs just a couple weeks ago. There are, since this socket is new, quite a few new board products on the market, and the first one I got to take a look at is from none other than Gigabyte.

Gigabyte has really changed things up in a big way recently. They launched new VRM designs, finally adopted UEFI, and made several other new technological changes that left me pretty impressed with their offerings over the past six months. All of those things seem to have come together in these new FM2 products from Gigabyte, the pinnacle of which is the Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4. Set as the enthusiast overclocking option for the AMD FM2 socket, or for those that want a bit more functionality from their shiny new A10-5800K, the Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4 features a high-end VRM design and quite a few overclocker-friendly options that are sure to meet any enthusiast's needs.
