    Default A88X boards appearing for sale

    Don't know if anyone caught this, but within the past few days at least A88X AMD boards have started appearing through Newegg and SuperBiiz.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132045

    http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-G1SPA88#

    Gotta say, that Gigabyte board is coming in WAY less expensive than I thought it was going to be. Time and testing (hint hint) will tell whether or not this platform lives up to any of the hype at all, or if it even IS a meaningful step forward. At the 120 dollar price point for what they would consider a "gaming" board, if it delivers then that's one hell of a bargain! A little disappointed in the Asus board though. No MOSFET cooling whatsoever, which kind of defeats the point of the A88X chipset to begin with.

    This bothers me more then anything. If the Board makings are making there Top end branded boards with APU chipset then that doesnt sound like the FX line os coming back. Would be weird to have a G1 sniper A88x and a G1 sniper for whatever the next high end chipset is. If there will be a next high end chipset. This might just be it. That would break my heart and it would be unforgivable.

    Well from what I am seeing of talk surrounding the "next socket," it almost seems like the AM3-style socket isn't itself the issue: the issue is the integrated memory controllers on the FX chips and single thread performance. Most likely this socket could continue to see improvements in it's existing form for quite some time, even up to including implementation of Steamroller and beyond.

    The OTHER way it could go is that the APU platform offers performance that renders the AM3-style socket obsolete. THAT would be something, though that certainly won't be the case immediately since even with their hUMA I don't see this chip being a tremendous leap forward, though a leap forward it will be nonetheless. I'd have to be a fair bit more knowledgeable on the platform's innards to say anything more conclusive than that, but I think that improvements could still be done using the existing AM3+ socket at LEAST up to Steamroller cores, though this means that we still probably wouldn't see anything for the enthusiast in any size other than ATX (which I admittedly find pretty appealing about the APU platform, since north bridge functionality is located on-die with them).

    i thought AMD was gonna slowly phase out the fx line and the AM3+ socket. I could be wrong though.
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!

    That's a lot of the speculation that is happening now, especially given the evidence that is present with the way all of their product roadmaps are laid out. No concrete announcement has been made, to my knowledge, so approach that bit of info with some trepidation. Still plenty of time for them to make a decision one way or another; or the decision has already been made and is being implemented right now, we just don't have the official announcement yet.

    Please don't take anything I have said as fact. AMD has fueled all of this speculation by not offering a clear guidance on what they are doing. Not answering anything at all. So people like me read everything like magic tea leaves then someone reports it's as fact. Lol don't listen to me! I don't know jack!

    If I came across as questioning your knowledge base on anything that certainly wasn't the intention. Just open discussion here. If I am reading too much into it then disregard x-). Something typically tends to get lost in translation with just text involved.

    There has been allot of anticipation with higher end APU boards in the recent months. With the performance of the recent Richland chips, it has sparked quiet a bit of movement with APU platforms which is why motherboard manufactures are now starting to release these boards. Its another platform that see making $$ from. However, with the new FM2+ chips releasing in the near feature I am not surprised either. This happen when Bulldozer was about to release. The 990FX chipset released almost 4 months before the chips were announced.

    This mean NOTHING as far as the FX series line.
    AMD has 3 road maps to processors.

    E Series - Entry level
    A Series - Middle Grade
    FX Series - Still AMD's top of line processing.

    As this point what AMD is going to do with the new FX series is a huge ? mark.
    But there has been evidence of a new chipset 1090FX, but that again is also another ? mark.
    So what they have planned has been a pretty big secret.

    But AMD has been making big moves with the new A series line due to its performance with the latest releases with Richland.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see more high end APU boards in the near future.

Its another platform that see making $$ from. However, with the new FM2+ chips releasing in the near feature I am not surprised either. This happen when Bulldozer was about to release. The 990FX chipset released almost 4 months before the chips were announced.

    This mean NOTHING as far as the FX series line.
    AMD has 3 road maps to processors.

    E Series - Entry level
    A Series - Middle Grade
    FX Series - Still AMD's top of line processing.

    As this point what AMD is going to do with the new FX series is a huge ? mark.
    But there has been evidence of a new chipset 1090FX, but that again is also another ? mark.
    So what they have planned has been a pretty big secret.

    But AMD has been making big moves with the new A series line due to its performance with the latest releases with Richland.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see more high end APU boards in the near future.


    If they did switch the FX line over to the current APU design they would need to add more cores to be in the category of FX. Like 6-8 cores with a GPU nobody would use. Like the I5s and i7s. lol AMD needs to spill some beans on the next FX series chips!

    Guess BF3 is a bit more CPU reliant then first thought. Ill keep an eye out for an FM2 apu for you buddy

    Even an A8 will perform admirably with that game on lower visual settings. However, if you are going to get an A8/A10 I would do it sooner than later. The closer it gets to the release date of the new Steamroller powered APUs, the less relevant those chips become. Otherwise, gain the patience of a Trappist monk and hold out for the new platform x-).

    The new platform requires a new board. FM2+. To keep it cheap just upgrade the apu. The only benefit of waiting is the FM2 APUs might become slightly cheaper. Grab an A10-6800k soon as you can. Or an A8 if you can afford the A10. BTW he has a discrete GPU in the system. Its the cpu part of the apu that is bottlenecking the system.
