Hello everyone,

I received a few questions about the type of motherboards that are compatible with the A10-7850K APU, and just wanted to share the answer with everyone here.

If you have a socket FM2+ motherboard then you can install the A10-7850K. But if you have a socket FM2 motherboard, then you can't use a socket FM2+ processor (note, socket FM2+ motherboards are backward compatible with socket FM2 processors).

So, if you're thinking about swapping your A10-6800K with a A10-7850K, make sure your motherboard has a FM2+ socket first.
