AMD FM2+ Socket Supports Entire APU Lineup Uptill 2015 – May Adopt DDR4 Memory With Carrizo APU

There have been some really interesting update regarding AMD’s next generation of accelerated processing units this month. We know what kind of architectural enhancements Kaveri would feature and its Excavator based new  successor codenamed “Carrizo” that arrives in 2015. Chinese portal of VR-Zone has a good news regarding AMD future generation platform which confirms that the FM2+ Socket would support the entire APU lineup uptill 2015.

AMD FM2+ Socket To Support Entire APU Lineup Uptill 2015

AMD’s FM2+ socket motherboards have already started making appearances such as the recently announced A88XM-A and A55BM-A from ASUS. Now the first thing that’s interesting to point out is that both Richland and Trinity APUs would be compatible with the FM2 and FM2+ socket motherboards, AMD’s Upcoming Kaveri APU would also feature compatibility with the FM2+ socket based around the A88X “Bolton D4 FCH”. Now we just recently got to know about AMD’s Carrizo APU and it has also been confirmed to feature support with the FM2+ socket expanding the life of current FM2+ based boards. This is a nice decision since it would save alot of money since consumers won’t have to cash in on a separate socketed boards instead just equip their new processors on a motherboard which they already own.

There are however reports that Carrizo revisions of the FM2+ motherboard may feature DDR4 memory support. This means that instead of DDR3 DIMM slots, users would have to use the more faster DDR4 memory schemes so it could be said that both DDR3 and DDR4 FM2+motherboard solutions would be available to consumers. Its not known if Carrizo revisions of the FM2+ socket boards would feature anything else beside DDR4, such as let’s say PCI-e 4.0 and SATA Express which are going to be included in Intel’s Skylake platform in 2015 and Haswell-E by the end of 2014. It remains to be confirmed but if it actually happens than those looking forward to the extra feature might definitely have to spend cash for the new motherboard revisions.

AMD’s Carrizo APU is Kaveri successor and has been confirmed by VR-Zone to feature the latest Excavator core architecture from AMD. Excavator would push x86 performance to new heights and is itself going to replace the 28nm Steamroller architecture that would be fused on the Kaveri, Berlin, FX Processors (Not confirmed) and next iteration of Opteron Enterprise processors.

On the GPU side, its not know what kind of architecture would be implemented as part of the Radeon core. By 2015, AMD will have released their Volcanic and Pirate Island (20nm) chips so they have the option to choose from either of those but if i was to take a wild guess at it, i would see the Volcanic Islands to be fused along side the Excavator core. It should be noted that Volcanic Islands discrete GPUs are also arriving for desktop PCs in Q4 2013, possibly October codenamed “Hawaii” delivering the next generation of visual and compute performance for gamers and enthusiasts. Kaveri APU on the other hand would be equipped with the current Southern Islands GCN cores with upto 512 stream processors pitting its performance close to current entry level discrete graphic cards. More on Carrizo can be seen here.

I want ddr4 on Carrizo... would make it a worthy upgrade.

It's already going to be on toronto so they can probably do it.

Edit: It's wccf....

At first I was like "DDR4? that's dumb" but then I remembered it's mostly an APU platform, and it makes a world's difference what kind of RAM an APU uses. This is cool.

Why do I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't know what wccf is.

It's the National Inquirer of tech news sources.

 

AMD's most recent roadmaps confirm DDR4 will not be supported, and nor will PCIe 4. It's still also on 28nm. I expect disappointment despite the Excavator improvement. Stacked onboard memory a la Iris Pro is rumored but not confirmed.

They're a news/rumor site that posts "news articles" about "leaks" saying that AMD's Hawaii GPU will have 4096 cores and that AMD is secretly working on a 5GHz 12-core Phenom IV processor with 75W TDP.  Among other things.

WCCF Tech is a tech blog with a LONG history of rumors and false claims which have proven to be false and untrustworthy. We consider it to be a very bad source for tech news.

We need HBM, DDR4 isn't going to get us very far until we once again hit a bandwidth wall.

or HMC, which is showing GLORIOUS results in the server world with more than 14x the bandwidth of DDR3.

Could AMD make an apu with a decent cpu in it that may even compete with x99?!

Well I am sure THAT will work out great

What's the point of FM2+ supporting DDR4 if current owners are going to have to upgrade since the modules are 288-pin rather than 240-pin.

AMD needs every edge it can get in the battle between Carrizo and Skylake, and Skylake lands with DDR4 as well. There's also the frightening fact Intel is starting to develop drivers.
