    From the looks of it, no mITX, which is disappointing.

    C'mon, we need a decent FM2/FM2+ mITX board!
    The only makers that offer anything are asrock, of which their initial design caught fire.

    Since it's ASRock, I must ask: was that literally, or was it just popular? Reply

    their FM2A75M-ITX literally caught fire.
    Their second iteration, FM2A85X-ITX seems to fair much better.

    You're wrong. MSI released a decent FM2 ITX board when Trinity first launched (FM2-A75IA-E53), and Gigabyte finally came out with theirs, which is rather nice, about a month ago (GA-F2A85XN-WIFI). Reply

    In that case, I stand corrected.

    MSI offering is lacking quite a few rear ports... VGA, HDMI and optical are decent, but having DVI, DP and wifi would have been even better.

    The gigabyte, on the other hand, looks very interesting. It's just unfortunate they didn't have it 6 months ago, because it would have been really nice to recommend that and A8 over i3-3225 and H77N-wifi.

    What are you talking about? The MSI has bluetooth, and Wifi. Reply

    It's nice to see 7 mobos for an AMD platform from one manufacturer and not just one or two. I was really disappointed the last months seeing dozens Intel motherboard and only o few for AMD. Reply

    How long does GIGIABYTE usually provide BIOS fixes for? Reply

    ITX at launch is a must, or I can guarantee there'll be a Haswell in the next machine I put together. Reply

    So those boards look nice but... why buy one now when you'll have to wait until next February to get a Kaveri anyway? Reply
  • David_K - Saturday, August 17, 2013 - link

    You can buy one and use it with a richland APU 0 Reply

    Uh, the 2nd sentence in the article states,

    "Despite recent rumors floating around the Internet reporting delays to AMD’s deployment of Kaveri (which AMD have since confirmed to the media that Kaveri will ship to customers in Q4-2013), motherboard manufacturers, like GIGABYTE, are announcing their lineup for Steamroller based APUs."

    So the next APUs wont be compatible with FM2 like originally stated?

    I have an A8-5600k HTPC. I built it to test out AMD APUs and throw some business their way. Ive thought on several occasions how much I regret the move.
  • Taft12 - Monday, August 19, 2013 - link

    The next APUs *WERE* compatible with FM2: Richland
    You're going to have to show me where AMD ever said Kaveri APUs would be compatible with FM2. FM2+ has been on the roadmap for a while:
  • Dirk Broer - Saturday, August 24, 2013 - link

    You can use your A8-5600K in FM2 mobos and in FM2+ mobos as well. You can't place a Kaveri in FM2 mobo though, as Kaveri has 2 more pins than socket FM2 allows for. Reply
  • lopper - Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - link

    A question: I remember some saying that Kaveri's ondie graphics would have GDDR5. So, if these boards aren't majorly redesigned, what if these can only run Kaveri in a castrated form? Reply
  • bobbozzo - Thursday, August 29, 2013 - link

    Also, Kaveri was supposed to support DDR4, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen if they're keeping backwards compatibility for FM2. Reply

    No Mini ITX FM2+ - not from Gigabyte, not from ASUS. ASRock must be jubilant. Reply
