Advanced Micro Devices has finally made the official introduction of its Kaveri Accelerated Processing Units, so, naturally, its OEMs are announcing support for it too.

The A10-7850K, A10-7700K and A8-7600 all have four CPU cores and either 6 or 8 GPU cores as well.

They work on the FM2+ socket, which is provided by the A88X, A78 and A55 (rev.3) chipsets.

Biostar and Gigabyte were among the mainboard makers to most quickly announce Kaveri-ready mainboards.
AMD FM2+ will replace AM3+ and FM2 mainboard in 2014. AMD will not launch a new socket this year, and probably not next year either.

Biostar's mainboards come with BIOSTAR Audio+, Video+, Speed+, Protection+, Durability+ and DIY+ technologies, while Gigabyte has its own suite of perks like DualBIOS, 2x Copper PCB design, One-Fuse-per-Port USB, etc.
