AMD Launches Own Line of DRAM Memory Products

AMD has launched its own line of memory devices to enter the DRAM memory market.

According to an article on PC Mag, the new products are available in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB variants.

The company has partnered with Patriot Memory and VisionTek Products for the new range of memory products and rebranding them with the AMD logo.

AMD said the memory devices, available from multiple online retailers and have been optimised to work with the entire range of AMD's desktop products. The devices have been placed into three categories.

Radeon modules, which are designed to work with high-end PCs, and Performance and Entertainment modules to be offered in high performance kits.

"AMD has been supplying and validating memory for AMD Radeon graphics cards for several years," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD's GPU Division, in a statement.

"Based on this experience, adding system memory to our product line was a clear opportunity for us. This move provides our partners and end-users with a trusted brand synonymous with quality-we can help ensure performance and reliability with AMD Memory," he added.

The DRAM memory sticks are available from Amazon.com, Bestbuy.ca, Fry's, Memory Express, Micro Center, NCIX, Newegg, Tiger Direct, and VIP Computers (UK).
