Well Intel don't make their own controllers anymore. They stopped using their in house controller after the 320 series and went for Marvell in the 510 series and now SandForce with the 330/520 series SSD's Sad thing is if I wanted get another 320 series for RAID, their SF models are much cheaper and not to mention i could get a lot more space. If I were getting another SSD today, I would go for the 830/840 Samsung.

I wonder which controller will these be using. I highly doubt that AMD would have their own controller.

What with the letters GTX? Can't you use something else like VX or something,

Good idea, let's use VX instead...

Because gaming is literally everything. An FX-8350 or FX-8320 beat an i5 clock for clock (ie. their competition) in nearly everything but gaming, plus as someone who just went from an FX-4170 to an i5 3570k and saw no major gaming performance difference...Well, most of the people here who talk about how AMD is much slower than Intel have no idea what they're going on about and are looking at pwetty graphs instead of actual gameplay. thumb.gif

EDIT: if they decide to sell SSDs.

No doubt Sandforce or maybe Marvel, as Plextor licensed the controller used in the M4.

If it is competitively priced and reliable then i can see no reason not to get one.
Lets be honest, you wont notice the difference between a slow and a fast SSD anyway since they are fast no matter which you use.

This. I think it's funny when people talk about SSD performance as if it actually matters in this day and age...Go for reliability, price and size over performance every time. Those are areas you'll actually see the difference in.

Makes sense, actually..It would be dumb for them to release yet another Sandforce drive.

This is actually a pretty good marketing idea. People like symmetry. When I buy a case, if I have the choice I prefer getting my PSU and cooling from the same brand. Corsair is actually doing a lot of marketing in this direction showing how you can get your case, PSU, cooling, RAM, SSD, keyboard, mouse and headset all from the same company. Now while we all know that having the parts all from the same brand does not make them work together better, there is a physiological undertone that makes us feel they will work better together.

This type of marketing works. Look at AMD CPU owners, many of them I know will tell me they do not feel right putting an nVidia card in their system. Now there is no reason for this and they acknowledge this but the feeling is still there. This desire for symmetry leads to a lot of purchasing decisions.

I mean think about it, you are building an AMD based system, the first gut reaction is an AMD video card. When you see the AMD RAM you will have a twitch impulse to buy it. Especially if it is priced competitively and is performance wise equal or better than others. Now add an SSD, again if the price is about the same and so is the performance a lot of people will buy because of the symmetry twinge.

As for AMD spending money on this? Well they really are not outside a marketing budget. They outsourced the RAM to Patriot, a brand with a solid reputation, they will do the same if they go with an SSD.

Is it a good or bad idea, really neither, it is just a marketing approach that has a history within this and other industries of being effective.

Well, they could use something like SS like Chevy has done for 50 years now for their "Super Sport" ... oh wait, I forgot, that story from Israel just came to light with the release, in the US, of Chevy's new car, the SS.

AMD strategy is about selling same parts with markup on top using their brand recognition.

The whole idea of it helping customers is a bit silly. Customer either don't know a thing about PC components and gets prebuild systems or he's competent enough to pick proper parts.

Is it that hard to come up with a name for a product line? AMD graphics cards are Radeon, nVidia mid-high end graphics cards are GTX, Corsair has some SSDs labelled GTX, and now we'll have AMD Radeon GTX SSDs. Splendid. kookoo.gif
Is AMD so desperate for cashflow that they'll just bring out any product, name it after another company's product, and hope consumers buy the AMD product by mistake? rolleyes.gif

would be cool to have an amd SSD. I'll stick with intel though. if there's one thing I take extra care off it's my files thumb.gif
post #40 of 90
Ok, let's start with this:

This whole rumor was started over an IMAGE. This image features the ATI girl (whom hasn't been used in some time) with ATI logos on her. Umm guys. Did we forget this is AMD now and not ATI? Show me one example of an ATI logo on all of AMD.com.

Some idiot photoshops an old image (likely from GRID) and now the rumor is that AMD is making SSDs. Wow, you guys sure know how to propagate trolls. thumb.gif
