Trinity A85X chipset ready

Written by Fuad Abazovic



FM2 support


Some of you are aware that currently available AMD A75 FCH and AMD A68 FCH support for both FM1 and FM2 sockets. Despite that there will be a new chipset that is shipping right now to customers and is meant for Trinity CPU and the new Virgo FM2 platform.

It comes with 8 SATA 6Gb/s ports as well as 4 USB 3.0, 10 USB 2.0 and two USB 1.1 ports if anyone still needs that. It also has RAID 0/1/5 and 10 support and it does support Crossfire. It has a TDP of 7.8W and ships in FCBGA 656 packaging.

AMD has been shipping A85X FCH since mid-Q1 2012 and it should launch some motherboards based on A85X together with Trinity CPUs in Q2 2012. The price of these boards should not get too high, and we expect to see them retail in the €60 to €100 range, depending on the spec.

It sure looks like a decent chipset for the new king of Fusion graphics, the Trinity APU.
