AMD said Tuesday that it will sell three 2.5-inch SSDs manufactured by enthusiast house OCZ, allowing AMD to offer high-speed storage alongside microprocessors and graphics chips.

AMD will sell the three SSDs—sized at 120, 240, and 480 gigabytes, respectively—as Radeon R7 SSDs, tying them to its Radeon family of GPUs. OCZ, which was recently acquired by Toshiba, will actually make the drives, together with its own flash chips and controllers.

It's just an OCZ Vertex with a new name. Supposedly it will sit between the Vector and Vertex, but it's going to be either a custom Vertex or a factory firmware limited Vector. Either way, it'll still be a good SSD, OCZ is still top tier since Toshitba lets them operate as an independent unit, the only thing which should sway your decision is the price difference between it and the Samsung range. J.Micron is supposedly much better than they used to be, but between Corsair, AData, and all the other cookie cutter drives, and Seagate still not ready for the non server environment, best to stick with OCZ and Samsung.

Put the AMD name on them and we will need another forum catagory. It's ironic in a way...AMD takes the heat/blame for laptop manufacturers customizing the basic driver for their particular configuration and not allowing generic drivers as a update. Then stop offering any updates at all. Now AMD will take the heat for any and all (Picnic) "problems" and issues. And this forum is full of people having picnic's.

I wonder how the money is flowing, to OCZ to make the drives, or from OCZ for an AMD licensing fee...

The portfolio diversification continues...

The RAM and SSD deals AMD has with Dataram and OCZ/Toshiba may be low margin but are a great way to promote the brand and generate some auxilliary top-up revenue for those red balance sheets.

So you thought posting in My post was correct? That has nothing to do with your problem? That is really      . Post in the correct forum....DESKTOP CATALYST DRIVERS. Then use DELETE and delete your post here.
