They have atleast some production capability since they bought 7-8% of company that produces memory even thought I forgot the name of that company...

Logic is nothing like memory and the onboard CPU memory isn't even the same kind as this.

Actually, Micron in Israel is old Intel Fab18 that made pentiums 4. Now they are producing memory chips on same equipment Intel used for cpu's...
Microns Israel isn't doing all that well tho.

They will be rebranding someone else's chips, just as they have before. It'd be stupid to enter that market.

i dont think is a badmove... since they are recognize wolrd wide... so that might get them extra cash... they are good controlling memory on their GPUS just imagine how good their memories and SSD might be... just thinking

Who wouldn't want to enter the ram market to undercut all this price fixing ftw!?!?!

That's what I was thinking too. Consumers have the tendency to like to stick with a single brand for components.

Has anyone noticed the A88X logo on the website?

Looks like a new chipset for FM2 boards to me. thinking.gif

You guys are really, really missing the point of this. It's not for enthusiasts. It's so AMD can make reference "Radeon" model laptops and tablets and get people to use their designs.

AMD has had a problem getting companies to use their APUs in good laptops when that's exactly where they belong. By AMD designing a basic platform for everyone to start from and providing nearly all the parts, it becomes a lot more attractive from the laptop manufacturer's perspective to start selling AMD APU laptops since you don't have to design most of the thing or deal with several suppliers.

If you don't really see this, it should be obvious by the time that you stop and remember where Rory Read comes from. He was the COO of Lenovo. He knows what he's doing and to be honest it's an awesome move for AMD to grab some non enthusiast market share.

Laptop manufacturers keep putting crappy 1333mhz sticks of ram in their laptops, usually just a single stick so it's single channel. Now, hopefully AMD can come along and say, "here's our reference model with two sticks of 1866mhz ram and an APU, you can buy this combo from us or you can go talk with someone else if you want RAM."

Not to mention it's going to make a plethora of case badges to go on laptops, and laptop manufacturers ******* love putting stickers on their computers.

I really don't get some of you Intel guys. One minute you're talking about how HD4600 looks good and you can't wait to upgrade and the next you're crapping on an AMD thread because they're not enthusiast enough. Show some decency please, you're painfully reminiscent of Apple fanboys.

4) You need some quality assurance
4) You need more staff to do all of the above plus management


All this dilutes AMD's focus for what? The margins are thin in DRAM and SSDs.... unless you actually make the stuff.

You must not be familiar with "just in time" fullfillment, ordering,manufacturing and shipping. If these are rebrands thats how these will be handeled, the actually manufacturers will handle most of this nonsense for AMD

It makes AMD be present in almost the entire spectrum of PC components, which greatly improves the chances of people seeing their products, and vastly enhances the effect of advertising (since you're not only selling processors, but processors, graphics cards, memory kits, and SSDs).


you mention people seeing their products.

i think AMD has lost out to intel so long for that single reason. performance between amd and intel has never been so far apart as to make one single bit of difference to average joe who goes to buy a desktop or a laptop or whatever. but marketing does.

i've never seen an AMD commercial in my entire life. i see intel commercials multiple times per day.

AMD why u no marketing budget?

It's been pretty profitable for them as well, though not by Intel standards but definitely by AMD. And if I remember correctly, the AMD memory was pretty damn good at a great price. Sure, it's not going to oc to 2400 from 1600 but it gets the job done. But the most important reason they are doing this, and I would bet money on it, is laptops, tablets and OEM's. Having the ability to control 80% of what goes into a computer and you lower overhead as well as increase margins and control over the end product while lowering market share for others. It wouldn't be crazy to think laptops with AMD APU's would come with AMD SSD's and AMD Memory. In fact, it's only logical.

No...I didn't mean anything about Intel. I use their SSDs myself. I just don't think AMD should be trying to copy them and start designing and producing them. At least not at the moment.

The only AMD memory I ever saw was the "Radeon" edition and it had a default speed of 1866MHz...it was decent stuff, but it was still a rebrand. I don't remember who made them though. If they are rebranding some memory...that is fine, but memory is so cheap these days that it would have to be so much more expensive to get into the business than to just buy some to rebrand...unless they are thinking about buying up a smaller memory manufacturer...and I don't think any one would give them loan to do that right now.
