Hi Nik,
There's really no "definite" top end wind range for a particular board.
You can sail the Futura 122 up to maybe 25 knots, probably more if you have small sails and fins, but the "fun factor" is going to start dropping off at around 20 knots, so 20-22 knots, on a 4.5-5.5 m2 rig, with a small 32 cm fin is pretty realistic.
You can do more, but you won't be comfy of a board that large or wide.
Hope this helps,
