    FinalWire announced AIDA64 v2.85, the popular system diagnostic and benchmarking suite is updated with 64-bit benchmarks optimized for AMD's "Richland" APUs, improved support for "Kaveri," "Kabini," and "Temash" APUs; and Intel "Haswell" and "Valleyview" CPUs; early support for AMD "Beema" APU, Intel "Avoton" SoC, "Crystalwell," "Ivy Bridge-E," and "Haswell-E" CPU, "Haswell-ULT" SoC; preliminary support for DDR4 and GDDR5 system memory types; and GPU support for AMD Radeon HD 8000 series and NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan.

    A new stepping of Kaveri?

    Gotta love AIDA, which like hwinfo64 gives some insight into the present goings-on behind the scenes...even if we don't necessarily see them in public for a bit. (That is, unless someone who cares reads this post and makes them start obfuscating it like other products in the past.)

    So we will see motherboards with GDDR5 support for APUs.
    I wander if we will see Radeon branded memory sticks or memory chips on motherboards or stacked memory on APU chip itself. So many questions...

    GDDR5 will be soldered on the motherboard, in BGA package, just like on video cards. Imagine cca. 8 GB GDDR5 memory of a lower speed grade (nothing like 6 GHz).

    If the memory is soldered on the motherboard this means that there will be no DDR slots? GDDR memory being used as system memory i don't think it will be possible to use DDR and GDDR at the same time.

    You will not be able to mix DDR3 memory modules and GDDR5 soldered down memory. So if you have GDDR5 memory, you won't have any DIMM slots, and so you won't be able to extend the system memory beyond the factory supplied amount.
    Major_A says thanks.

    Thanks for the info. Jeez, I thought there were too many SKUs out there for motherboards now. I can't imagine what it's going to be like in the future.
