AMD Moving To DRAM Business

Without much fanfare, AMD started offering DDR3 DRAM modules under the Radeon brand name.

As of now, the Radeon branded RAM is available in three tiers, a 1333 MHz "Entertainment" tier (9-9-9 timings), a 1600 MHz "ULTRAPRO Gaming" tier (11-11-11 timings), and an "Enterprise" tier with unannounced timings or speed. Only 2GB memory sticks are available with no news about larger sizes being planned.

It is worth noting that the PC DRAM is a highly-competitive low-margin market that has seen several companies fleeing in recent years. Why would AMD choose to expand into such market is beyond us.

No solid news is available yet about the RAM's pricing.
