ASUS today announced that its line-up of AMD FM2+-based motherboards offer support for the latest AMD® A-series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), codenamed ‘Godavari’.

When used in combination with ASUS AMD FM2+ motherboards the new AMD A-series APUs offer great-value performance, delivering best-in-class gaming and graphics experiences at up to 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) resolutions. Existing ASUS owners can update their motherboards quickly and easily using the intuitive ASUS USB BIOS Flashback or ASUS EZ Update tools. The necessary BIOS updates are available to download immediately, while an easy graphics-driver (VGA) update pushes the AMD A-Series APUs’ integrated AMD Radeon graphics to new performance heights for better-than-ever visual and gaming experiences.

Ready for Godavari in just a few clicks

Updating an ASUS AMD FM2+-based motherboard for compatibility with the latest AMD A-series (‘Godavari’) APUs takes just moments.

With the ASUS-exclusive USB BIOS Flashback the latest UEFI BIOS is downloaded to a USB flash drive. The motherboard does not even need to have a processor or memory modules in place: users simply connect the power supply, plug in their USB drive, press the USB BIOS Flashback button and then sit back and wait — there’s nothing else to do.

Alternatively, the Windows-based EZ Update tool — accessed via EZ Mode in ASUS AI Suite 3 — will update the motherboard’s BIOS with just one click

Users are also advised to update to the latest graphics drivers (version 14.502.1013.0 or later) to unleash the best possible performance.
