AMD A10-7870K Throttling?

I am preparing to buy my budget desktop that has an AMD A10-7870K, but I started reading comments on some reviews, and few people have been noting some issues where the CPU seems to have throttling problems with it's voltage or something?

 

I am not really sure, but I am a paranoid buyer and wanted to know if anyone knows what they are talking about, Supposedly some bios updates fix this, but it didn't specify which motherboards this was affecting either.  (Example Godavari throttles to 1.6 GHz after 20 seconds - AnandTech Forums )

 

In case it's needed I am going to be using this CPU with a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H

 


I am hoping this is nothing, and I am just being paranoid.
