[TCMag] AMD starts selling Radeon-branded DDR3 memory - Page 3

post #21 of 111
Would like to see how they do down the road against Mushkin and some other brands. They seem like a joke right now though. The timings are hilarious though.

Stupid article is stupid, AMD didn't describe it as "Ultra Pro Gaming" - The article did, and not even for that stick.

Quote:
According to AMD's website , three 2GB long DIMMs are being (initially) released as part of the Radeon memory line, and each one caters to a certain segment. There's the 'Entertainment' memory which runs at 1333 MHz (9-9-9 latency), the 'Ultra Pro Gaming' DIMM working at 1600 MHz (11-11-11) and last we have the 'Enterprise' memory which doesn't have finalized specs.

The DDR3-1333 module has already found its way into Japanese stores and can be bought for about $20. No word though on when we'll get to buy some Radeon Ultra Pro Gaming memory.

Strongly agreed.

It seems to me that they relabel DDR3 800Mhz rams. You can't expect any other ram to work at 1600Mhz and have such amazingly high timings.

What a ripoff.

Let me say it again, the specifications there are for 1333mhz and 1600mhz ENTERPRISE sticks.

http://www.amd.com/US/PRODUCTS/TECHN...em-memory.aspx

Look at the page, it doesn't list any specs under gaming or entertainment, only server. Logically, they haven't released specs for the entertainment and gaming sticks, only the server ones.

AMD wants in on the server and enterprise market, which is understandable considering the low percentage of AMD CPU's in servers.

EDIT: Or maybe I can't read today Still, I wonder how these sticks overclock!

Uhhhh.... Go back and look at the chart on AMD's site again. It clearly refers to "Ultra Pro Gaming" in the middle and the 1600 (11-11-11) sticks in the same column.

Maybe if they ran at a lower voltage than the G.Skill ECO's (less than 1.35v) I'd accept them. But 1333 CAS 9 or 1600 CAS 11 at 1.5v? This is slower than DDR2 800 CAS 5. I like your affordable processors AMD, but this is just a joke. Only a die hard fanboy would buy this.
