AMD to ship its own optimized 2GB, 4GB, 8GB RAM

AMD-branded RAM modules will soon begin shipping, the company said Monday. It used its AMD OverDrive performance optimization tool to test and optimize DRAM for its Fusion chips, Radeon graphics cards, and more traditional processors. The chipmaker also worked with Patriot Memory and VisionTek in the undertaking, utilizing their experience.

There are 2GB, 4GB and 8GB sizes offered in various speeds. The Entertainment category will sport 1,333MHz and 1,600MHz RAM for quiet home theater PCs. The Performance variants will be rated at up to 1,600MHz with low latency and will be matched in pairs. The top-rung Radeon Edition DRAM will run at 1,866MHz and be tuned and certified for specific AMD platforms.

AMD will sell complete packages for what it believes is the best in performance and value. VisionTek will carry AMD memory through D&H distributing. The semiconductor firm has already been supplying and validating memory for AMD Radeon graphics cards for years.

AMD memory will be available at a number of online and web-based retailers, though pricing and dates are yet to be revealed.
