I think they would have a nice market for RAM optimized for maximum performance for their Ryzen and Threadripper lines, the last time they tried was with the Construction cores, I bought a 16GB (2x8GB) kit of 2400 DDR3 to pair with my Kaveri for $100 in 2012. Timing for such a product is critical, Zen is far more popular and even more so now with Zen2.AMD has tried their hand with memory before (by running their own brand). It did not work out so well for them. Also, bundling a specific board might irritate other board partners. That's the kind of bundle Microcenter et al. can put together. AMD doesn't have that flexibility.
You have a good point on the motherboard problem and are correct. Instead, replace the MB with an AMD branded 1TB PCIe 4.0 drive.
