AMD Richland to use Socket FM2

FUD Zilla delivers word that AMD's Richland APUs will use the Socket FM2. Richland is the successor to the Trinity processors that were released earlier this week, the new chips are expected in late Q2 2013.
It turns out that Bolton D4 is just a new version of the A85X chipset that will have better support for Richland processors. AMD has already officially confirmed that Trinity refresh in 2013 comes in the new 28nm process and we found out that the current schedule for Richland processor is late Q2 2013 launch.

We also heard from AMD that the FM2 infrastructure is here to stay and that the future processor including FM2 based Richland will work in FM2 boards. It remains unclear if Richland qualifies as a FM2+ processor that simply works in all FM2 motherboards.

The long-term strategy is to stick with the same socket for a longer than just one generation, as this was always a side of AMD that many fans appreciated.
