Does anybody have a guess about which motherboard will work with Berlin APU ?

As far as I know, FM2+ motherboards available on the market do not support ECC memory (for instance : Asus A88XM-PLUS specs).

This is strange : according to this page AMD Unveils Server Strategy and Roadmap , Berlin is expected to be available in the first half of 2014. Where are the motherboards ?

I would love if they use the Socket FM2+.  I have an a10-7850k now and ended up going the discrete graphics card route.  I now want a faster CPU to compliment it.

There is still almost 4 months left in 1H 2014 plus AMD is known to run late with their schedules. Validations for server class hardware and drivers take longer than for consumer class and there are no BETAs. It almost certainly won't be socket FM2+ as server memory is wider and uses more lanes for ECC. The way things are going it will probably launch in early to mid 2H 2014. I do hope Berlin iGPU will have FP64 throughput of FP32/4 instead of FP32/16.
