Asus launches first batch of FM2+ boards

Written by Fudzilla staff

A88X and A55 chipsets

Asus has introduced two new motherboards, which wouldn’t make it into the news if it weren’t for their socket.

The A88XM-A and A55BM-A/USB3 are Asus’ first FM2+ boards designed to support AMD’s upcoming Kaveri mid-range APUs. Of course, they are also backwards compatible Trinity and Richland parts.

Both are mATX boards and they incorporate a range of cutting edge features, such as PCIe 3.0, USB 3.0 and USB 3.0 Boost. The boards also have a new Fan Xpert fan controller, Asus 5X Protection Technology and DIGI+ VRM.

However, the boards aren’t exactly ready to handle FM2+ parts just yet. They will need a BIOS and driver update to handle the new chips, which doesn’t sound like a big deal. Asus is planning to introduce the rest of its FM2+ motherboard range later in the year.

There is still no word on pricing or availability, but since they’re no frills mATX boards they should come cheap.
