AMD starts flogging Radeon branded memory

Written by Fudzilla staff


Three series in the works
Chipmaker AMD is apparently planning to enter the memory module market in style. The outfit is readying to introduce several DDR3 modules as part of its new Radeon memory line.

Judging by AMD’s own website and some retailer leaks, AMD will introduce three distinct memory module series. Entertainment class modules are rated at 1333MHz (9-9-9 latencies), Ultra Gaming Pro modules run at 1600MHz (11-11-11 latencies) and there’s also the Enterprise series, but it hasn’t been spec’d yet.

The first Radeon memory modules have apparently already gone on sale in Japan. You can check out some revealing photos here.

RAM is not the best product to make money. It is the best product to lose money. SSDs on the other hand are perfect. They better start thinking about AMD SSDs and forget about RAM. We have a minimum of 4GBs in our PCs and don't know what to do with all this RAM most of the times. On the other hand SSDs are still expensive, small and with huge room for improvement.

Who ever in the board thought about RAM is about two to four years behind in his calendar. He also can not understand why all the big memory makers are concentrating their resources in making SSDs. Maybe he never heard about SSDs in his life. Maybe he lives under a rock. I don't know. But if the board is thinking like him they better bring Meyer back. Fast.

Just wondering if AMD is entering the memory market as part of their long term APU strategy.
We all know that the gpu section of the apu is limited by the system memory bandwidth.....wonder if they are working towards something with perhaps their side port and some kind of new AMD memory slot or layout?

1600MHz @ CAS11? I'll stick with my G.Skill 1600MHz @ CAS7 tyvm.

well with those latencies I guess they are marketed toward Dell and HP .
It's a shame that they are calling them Ultra Gaming Pro and Enterprise series .

well all said I rather to stick to my current Crucial Ballistix 1600Mhz CL7 memories

Evidently the clock speeds are more important than latency for APUs. They are trying to keep it value-priced instead of getting on the marketing specs bandwagon.

Interesting although the latencies aren't quite impressive but then again they're APU memory, not full on gaming rig memory, it may also lead to a place in the SSD market for AMD

I agree. OCZ left the memory market so last time I bought Corsair memory. If I buy another SSD (I have a Kingston), it will be Corsair.

Naughty naughty DrackyQueen, as always spreading filthy lies everywhere like a xploding scumbag.

AMD did awesome quarter, they jumped +19% a week before the report.

Memory sales would do a good thing specially to promote AMD's EPP memory profiles.

I leave you to go googling, i know u need it, ignorant sucker.
