    Am i correct in thinking there arent many/any FM2 motherboards that support above 1866Mhz memory though?

    Just about every board from MSI and Asrock support 2133mhz including the A85x Micro ITX board from Asrock, as well as most of Asus, Biostar, and ECS's higher end boards. Heck even my A55 board from MSI I paid $40 for supports it.

    Quick look at Newegg shows some of the FM2 boards supporting DDR3-2600 and many of them supporting DDR3-1866. All of the A85X boards listed go up to DDR3-1866, so that would be the obvious chipset of choice to use.

    EDIT: Currently showing in stock at Newegg:

    AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-...

    AMD will be making 2133 MHz. RAM the default frequency in upcoming APUs. This is currently a good frequency for optimum performance with AMD's APUs. If the RAM is priced competitively, this would be a good choice.

    AMD got back into the RAM Biz to support upcoming products so you should be able to guess what is on the way. ;)

    Memory controller is on the CPU and this memory is using XMP. It should work with just about any board that supports XMP as it will set the sub-sub-timings you cannot even with a cheap board.

    Hopefully these will be better than AMD's first memory debacle. Who is the supplier(manufacturer)?

    the APU's really need DDR4 ...
    even DDR3 2133 is still a SLIGHT bottle neck its less about the speed and more about the memory architecture DDR4 has more in common with with GDDR making it better suited to handling Frame buffer and Graphics data in Addition to system use bus inversion mainly

    I am not sure any bottleneck is from memory. DDR3 should have plenty of bandwidth. It could be from share resources Onemoar.

    first amd needs to improve their memory controller and increase available bandwidth. without extra bandwidth, its futile.

    there is a significant difference between GDDR3 and GDDR5 cards. as much as 5-10fps!

    What debacle? They were sold performing RAM but were a little over priced. That is not a debacle, it was just bad pricing.

    And that depends on the card. For a $60 GPU the difference would be nothing.

    true but for the APU level A8- A10 ones .i.e 76xx series, it does matter.
