AMD Memory Goes Worldwide

In August, AMD introduced Radeon-branded memory modules and is running a test in Japan market. Looks like the results of that test were successful, since the company is coming with the whole product line globally.

AMD partnered with Patriot Memory to bring this type of products to the global market, while VisionTek is selected to be the North American retail partner. AMD will offer three lines of system memory, all in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities: "Entertainment Edition", "Performance Edition" and "Radeon Edition". The line is fairly standard - DDR3-1333, DDR3-1600 and DDR3-1866.

DDR3L is making an appearance inside the "Performance Edition" with modules operating at 1.35V, while "Radeon Edition" operates at 1.5-1.65V at 1866MHz and supports overclocking via AMD Overdrive software.

Long DIMM RAM is not the only thing AMD silently launched. The company also launched its own brand of graphics memory, and we should see some vendors of graphic card use an NVIDIA GPU with AMD GDDR3 or GDDR5 memory :-P
