AMD A85FX chipset aims for Q1 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Komodo / Trinity, FM2 socket
AMD doesn’t work on USB 3.0 support for high end Bulldozer FX class platforms but it sure wants to make even better USB 3.0 supporting chipset for Fusion, Llano generation.

It currently ships A75 and A55 Llano chipsets, A-series chipsets, and in Q1 2012 it wants to introduce a new chipset simply called A85FX. There are two new things that will add up to A75 features. A85FX has RAID 5 and 8 SATA 6 Gb/s controllers while A75 has no RAID 5 and 6 SATA 6 Gb/s.

The rest of the spec is the same, both chipsets supports USB 3.0, four ports and as well as 10 USB 2.0 and two USB 1.1, if anyone still needs them, but they come in handy for keyboards and mice.

They also support RAID 0, 1, and 10, Displayport to VGA, PCIe X4 Gen 2 + Display Port including Crossfire support. The A85 is FM2 socket only and this socket should get introduced with Komodo platform and Trinity version of Fusion, in Q2 2012.

This is obviously good news. I also heard the new CPU socket will be compatible with current AM3+ CPU's.
In my Opinion, I think it's a great time to build a nice gaming system based on the Socket AM3+ platform.
AMD FX-8150 / Asus Crosshair V Formula (ROG) / 16GB DDR3-1866 (4GB x 4) G-Skill = approx: $610...to upgrade your setup assuming your Hard Drive, Power Supply etc. Are enough to power your new horse.

I'm getting more and more confused.
Komodo on the Corona platform has been scrapped replaced by the Vishera cpu on Volan platform which will be compatible with AM3+.
See a previous article on FUD

But now you say A85FX FM2 is coming out Q1 2012 for Trinity and Komodo????
AMD really need to set the record straight and journalists need to keep up to date.
I'm starting to doubt Vishera/Volan is true, may be just misinformation to con people into buying AM3+ so they get a good BD Zambezi launch when infact Komodo is still going ahead on A85FX FM2.
I'm an informed purchaser and will not buy anything from AMD till they set the record straight.

You make a good point, I am a little bit confused between the 990FX and this new chipset but logic has me thinking this supports all the features AMD has put into Bulldozer since its delay.

Anyway early benchmark shows AMD Bulldozer is faster than Sandy Bridge and alot cheaper too.

So the rumor sites are confused and you blame AMD? AMD has always been good with compatability, so there's no need to "con" anyone.
