AMD to sell own SSDs
For years AMD has aimed at creating a full company product portfolio and we have to say quite successfully at that. In 2006 AMD purchased ATI and became a major player on the graphics card maker and not so long ago the company started selling own brand computer memory. Now it is time to offer something more – SSDs.
Yes, that’s right. AMD plans to soon release AMD SSDs on the market. The new drives will be created together with OCZ/Toshiba. It appears that OCZ will deliver the SSD memory controller, while Toshiba will bring 19 nm NAND flash memory to the table.
AMD will target the mass SSD market where 120 GB and 240 GB drives rule. Thus the company will be able to sell SSDs with decent capacity at a decent price. To make it even easier on consumers the upcoming AMD SSDs will be available in the 2.5-inch form factor only.
