AMD Officially Releases The OCZ-rebranded, Radeon R7 SSDs


AMD is bringing the popular Radeon brand to solid-state drives, with the new Radeon R7 SSD series the include Toshiba/OCZ memory and be essentially a mid-range OCZ SSD with an AMD sticker on it.

Similar to AMD Radeon memory, AMD is not actually designing or manufacturing the SSDs as the product design and manufacturing is handled by OCZ. In fact, all the customer support is also handled by OCZ.

The new SSDs are based on OCZ's Barefoot 3 platform and has the same higher clocked M00 version (397MHz) as in the Vector 150. The new OCZ ARC 100 and Vertex 460 use the M10 version, which runs at 352MHz instead of 397MHz but is otherwise the same silicon. Performance wise the R7 SSD is very close to Vector 150 with slightly lower random write performance, although random read performance is marginally better in turn.

The biggest difference between the two is endurance as the Vector 150 is rated at 50GB per day for five years (91TB total) while the R7 is rated at 30GB per day for four years (43TB total). The NAND is also different as the R7 utilizes Toshiba's A19nm MLC, but OCZ should be making the switch to A19nm across its whole client SSD lineup soon to cut costs.
