Would it be safe to assume that DDR4 will debut with Haswell and whichever chip amd puts out later this year?

No. Initially DDR4 will be available for HPC / server environments. Retail market implementations will likely come in late 2014.

I am going to assume about the same timeframe then for the motherboard and processor support too. Or would we be seeing that head of time?

Pretty much. I would say the first available platform will be Haswell EP or its equivalent.

When the PCI-SIG certified it, they listed devices as becoming available in 2011....

hey,it's nice but why would we need that right now? higher than 1333 mhz DDR3 ram in dual channel is totally useless for gamers.

Maybe for pros?

Well, I was going to wait to upgrade to Haswell. Now, I think I'll go for a cheap i7 system and wait it out. Or maybe just buy a big juicy Dell U3011. But 2 years? Really?

Well for RAMDisk it's something. Fastest thing to get access other than Cache Memory is RAM.
