AMD to launch Radeon R7 branded SSDs this month

Quote:
In April a rumor appeared that AMD was working with Toshiba to create a new range of SSDs that would be sold with Radeon branding. It turns out that rumor is true, and we are set to get three new drives branded Radeon R7 Series SSD.

The R7 drives will use Toshiba’s 19nm MLC NAND combined with an Indilux Barefoot 3 controller. They are basically OCZ Vector 150 drives. Capacities include 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB options, with read and write speeds in the 450-550MB/s range. A generous 5-year warranty is also expected.

Hi there

not sure I want anything to do with AMD any more -- IMO OCZ Vector drives were pretty terrible in any case -- I prefer INTEL or Samsung -- can't go wrong with them.

AMD always had problems with drivers - especially wiyh NVIDIA etc.

I'm keeping well clear of this stuff.

Cheers

This just seems kind of random tbh. And there are already so many companies making SSDs now it's insane. SSDs are easier to manufacture than HDDs I assume which is why only about 5 or so companies make HDDs. But SSDs only need a circuit board and some cells and you have an SSD right? I'm sure it's a bit more complicated.

"We already make graphics cards and processors! NOW WE WILL MAKE SSD! Why? BECAUSE WE CAN!... Hmm... what can we make next? What about case fans? There's only about a billion companies already making those but who cares!"

I know, I know, I'm not funny. But at least I try.

I thought it was funny... And true. Except there's now only three HDD manufacturers. (Seagate, Toshiba and Western Digital).

It is an expanding market. That is why.

Expanding markets also generate a willful desire to place profits ahead of value.

I didn't think it is just "Expanding markets"

Well AMD is a day late and a dollar short: Again.

I think the SSD market will grow in the near future. They work great and the price is going in the direction I like; down.

Personally I will stick with Intel and Samsung for one reason. I use them and they work as they should.

Toshiba bought OCZ. I hadn't seen them do anything with it. Now they are doing something. Leaning on the Radeon name...but is it strong enough to bring in customers?
