Product Overview
GIGABYTE FM2+ series motherboards based on AMD A88X chipset and feature the new FM2+ APU socket, and are designed to get the most from forthcoming Kaveri AMD APUs, while preserving compatibility for current AMD FM2 APUs. FM2+ AMD APUs offer native support for 8 GT/s PCI Express gen 3.0 as well as DX11.1 support integrating the high performance ‘Steamroller’ core. AMD socket FM2+ APUs also offer native support for 4K resolution displays on HDMI port.

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Plus
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 4 Plus debuts on GIGABYTE motherboards, with a range of features and component choices that provide record-breaking performance, cool and efficient operation and extended motherboard lifespan.

Ultra Performance
GIGABYTE uses All Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.

Ultra Safe
GIGABYTE motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.

Humidity Protection
Humidity can play havoc on a motherboard's circuitry.GIGABYTE's new Glass Fabric PCB design helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the gaps in spacing between PCB filaments.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-DS2 AMD A88X, S FM2+, DDR3, PCIe 3.0 (x16), 2 Way CrossFireX, D-Sub (VGA), DVI-D, Micro ATX Excellent bit of kit.This product has great features. 07 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Budget Board bought this board on thursday. rev3.1.ships with F7 bios, did not need to flash bios to fit fm2+ a8 7600 kaveri apu. added Crucial Ballistix Sport, Low Profile 4GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.35V 512Meg x 64 BLS4G3D1609ES2LX0CEU(despite crucial compatibility checker saying it was not compatible). whole system works like a charm. for an everyday budget(non gaming) system. money well spent as usual, no problems with ordering and delivery by dpd(dpd text you with a estimate delivery time, and turned up within the time frame). have been using Scan for 7 years. 24 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Motherboard Good selection of ports, heatsinks and port placement is pretty good. No idea why 2 of the SATA ports are placed horizontally, but unlikely to bother most people. I had specific requirements as I needed space for 32GB ram and 8 ports to support 2 x 4 drive arrays on Freenas under ZFS RAID Z1. All working like a charm and I can write to my server at up to 70MBs which is close enough to the theoretical max of 100MBs over a single gigabit port. 05 April 2014

Answer: 
Hello,

We buy from many different suppliers so we can't confirm the BIOS that this will ship with or the revision.

Thanks,
