AMD Quietly Releases Radeon-Branded Memory Modules


According to a new report, AMD will release Radeon-branded memory modules for extreme performance.

The report states that AMD devided to start selling its own-brand Radeon memory modules for systems powered by its accelerated processing units (APUs) and central processing units (CPUs). The reasons why AMD decided to enter the market of memory modules are not exactly clear. Potentially, own-brand memory modules will help AMD to ensure availability memory modules compatible with its platforms.

AMD (and previously ATI) has been supplying its add-in-card partners with compatible GDDR-series memory chips for years now. This allowed AMD to make sure that certain graphics cards models are available with the right type of memory. For manufacturers of graphics cards things also get easier: they can buy graphics chips along with memory chips from one source, which speeds up time-to-market, optimizes logistics and generally simplifies business process

AMD plans to offer three series of Radeon memory modules: Entertainment (1333MHz, CL9 9-9), UltraPro Gaming (1600MHz, CL11 11-11) and Enterprise (specs to be determined). Initially, the company only ships 2GB memory modules. It is unclear which of the DRAM makers actually produce memory chips (which are marked as 23E64587MCDJ, 6521002 1121) for AMD. Specifications of the memory modules are not truly impressive and performance-demanding users will prefer solutions from companies like Corsair Memory.
