We expect to see DDR4 in desktops and notebooks maybe a year after the server," explained a representative from Kingston on the show floor.

Samsung is predicting that DDR4 will most likely not turn up in our own machines until after 2015. That's a long way away and we could well have a very different computing ecosystem by then
There's multiple things I find worrisome on that roadmap but it kind of makes sense. AMD has definitely been having trouble following their own roadmaps lately and even Kaveri doesn't reach their 1 teraflop estimate. I think they are just learning to say what they can guarantee and omit what they are unsure they can deliver.
For example, A max TDP of 65w makes a 3 module APU extremely unlikely. However, that doesn't mean it will never exist. I think they are just saying it will definitely launch on FM2+, It will definitely support DDR3, and a 2 module APU will have a 65w TDP. Anything else is subject to change and was just omitted.
Would they think this way, or am I just being too optimistic?
Happy Thanksgiving by the way everyone!
