[Kit]AMD begins to sell DDR4 memory modules for Intel and next-gen platforms

Advanced Micro Devices has started to sell Radeon DDR4 memory modules.

AMD Radeon R7 DDR4 memory modules are available in dual-channel 8GB memory kits rated to run at 2133MHz or 2400MHz with CL15 timings. It is unclear whether the modules feature Intel’s XMP [extreme memory profiles] technology, but they definitely support AMD’s own memory profiles, reports PC Games Hardware.


AMD’s Radeon R7 DDR4 memory modules are not performance champions, but fans of AMD’s Radeon graphics cards and modders make purchase decisions based on design and visual aesthetics, not on performance.

Just how sad can AMD become? Next step should be m.2 drives for their 2017 mobos.

Well since it is just a sticker, as AMD don't make the memory (I think Patriot does), but just sell it under the radeon name, selling DDR4 doesn't really mean anything.
On the same time you can buy corsair DDR4 and slap a "Cool factor Radeon" sticker on it for the extra value and epicness feeling.

Statement from Editor-In-Chief
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This morning I woke up to complaints from many readers regarding a post made by one of our European news team last night – Anton Shilov. This post took place when the UK team were all in bed. This article was entitled ‘AMD begins to sell DDR4 memory modules for Intel and next-gen platforms’ and can be found HERE.
In this article Anton said ‘AMD’s Radeon R7 DDR4 memory modules are not performance champions, but fans of AMD’s Radeon graphics cards and modders make purchase decisions based on design and visual aesthetics, not on performance.’
I have edited the original article this morning as soon as I was awake and in a position to do so. It is important to say that this is NOT a ‘universal’ opinion of KitGuru or a view the other 10 writers I have working for me share, and it certainly does not reflect any views I hold as Editor In Chief.
screenshot395
My hardware team have invested a lot of time recently into working with AMD and have reviewed the Fury X, Fury, and NANO – the last of which was sampled officially by AMD for launch day after we resolved previous issues. All our reviews are accurate, detailed and it is content I am proud to stand behind.
That said I do feel the news team have dropped the ball with this AMD DDR4 article last night and as such I accept full responsibility and have taken action internally. I appreciate your understanding regarding this and if we offended any AMD hardware owners then I sincerely apologise. My concern is that an outspoken opinion or badly worded statement from one writer can be deemed as an ‘opinion of KitGuru’. Which it isn’t.
it is worth pointing out that If you have any feedback about KitGuru content then you contact me directly at allan@kitguru.net. I will try and answer everyone.
Thanks for listening.
