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,
