AMD to offer branded desktop RAM modules

Hardware vendor to "take the guesswork" out of memory selection

Article comments

Advanced Micro Devices is to introduce its own brand of desktop system memory modules, called AMD Memory.

By offering its own branded memory modules for desktops, AMD aims to "take the guesswork out of DRAM selection, providing an easy and straightforward experience when looking for the ideal match for gaming or multimedia PC needs", it said in a statement.

AMD has been supplying and validating memory for AMD Radeon graphics cards for several years, and saw an opportunity to add system memory to its product line, a spokesman said.

The company did not immediately respond to requests for comment on whether it will offer branded memory modules for other kinds of computers besides desktops.

It said it is collaborating with memory module makers to create the AMD Memory branded products from components qualified to meet certain specifications. By testing and certifying the memory components, end-users can be assured of compatibility with AMD platforms, it added.

AMD has partnered with memory modules company Patriot Memory and PC enhancement products firm VisionTek Products. VisionTek, which is already an authorised reseller for AMD products, will distribute the AMD modules through its distributor D&H.

AMD Memory branded products will be available soon through major retailers across North America. International availability is yet to be confirmed.

The company said it has used the AMD OverDrive performance optimisation tool to test and optimise DRAM with the company's APUs (Accelerated Processing Units), CPUs (Central Processing Units), GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) and chipset platforms.

AMD Memory is available at three different sizes, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB, in a range of price points and speeds.

For the entertainment category, it will feature 1333 MHz and 1600 MHz speed RAM. A performance version supports speed up to 1600 MHz with low latency and comes in matched pairs, while Radeon Edition DRAM will run at 1866 MHz, AMD said.
