Yeah, but then again Corsair don't make graphics card.

And having say, an AMD Radeon GTX 120GB ssd.. could confuse costumers. Radeon + GTX in the same title.

There is nothing they could do that would undercut or even reduce the prices of SSD since they would have to go to 3rd parties for EVERYTHING except support/marketing.

and firmware. which would make amd part of 99% of all ssd oems. not many make their own ssd from scratch. intel and samsung are the only ones i think

WD needs to step up their game if they don't want to be caught off-guard when the HDD are deemed obsolete and deprecated.

Samsung's place in the Ram market is different than companies like Crucial, Patriot,Corsair or G.Skill though. Samsung & Hynix makes all the DRam modules/chips that go on all the DDR3 Ram PCBs & Nvidia/AMD Graphic cards(as GDDR5). Corsair/G.Skill just buy the chips from Samsung/Hynix, assemble them onto PCBs, Bin them, attach heatspreader and Sell them.

id LMAO if this was a rebranded Intel SSD biggrin.gif .... oh one more thing that piss me off is that 990fx chipset /AM3+ socket are so outdated, they lack native PCIE3, USB3 and SATA3. Yet they sell PCIE3 graphic card, and SSD doh.gif it doesnt make any sense, their enthusiast platform doesnt fully benefit other radeon branded stuff.

GTX isn't a term that Nvidia owns the rights to. Yes they have had their 'GTX' series cards for some time, but that doesn't mean that other companies can't use that acronym.

The name is idiotic, when people hear "GTX" nVidia GeForce will always come to mind. It also seems like AMD is trying to get into every industry other than CPU and GPU. Their "Overclocker's" ram was a joke, their CPU's are worthless (for various reasons that I will not go into detail about **I would not like to start a debate on why AMD cpu's are inferior**), they falsely announced and faked the next generation of their GPU's and their APU's continue to be a laughing stalk for anyone who cares about having a decently performing computer and now they think people are going to buy SSD's from them and associate the brand with performance and quality?? When I think AMD I think of a cheap and poorly made alternative. Not quality and not performance (yes the 7xxx series of GPU's is dated both hardware wise and driver wise).

Nice try AMD.

Perhaps we're all missing the point here and AMD's plan is to release SSDs of incredibly low quality, thereby causing the consumer to associate GTX branded pc parts with crap. thinking.gif

Yes, but if you're trying to market a product to computer enthusiasts who are aware of nVidia and their products the notion is really flawed although legal. AMD's approach to marketting is pathetic, if you're trying to differentiate your product from any competition, especially nVidia, why would you incorporate a term used in almost every one of your competitors products for the past decade?

Sabotage. It all makes sense now.

As of Vertex 4, it is all done in house by OCZ. Controllers and everything are OCZ, I dont' see them going anywhere at any point in the near future.
