Will it need a bios update?

So I plan on buying an AMD A10-7850K but pcpartpicker keeps warning me about how Some AMD A88X chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaveri CPUs. This is the motherboard: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaf2a88xmd3h CPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-ad785kxbjabox

it depends on the revision of the board

revision 3.0 will need update but revision 3.1 doesn't. Revision 3.1 board was released on November 2014. So it will depend on where you buy it, if they have latest version..
