AMD unveils Radeon R3 Series SSDs

AMD has expanded its somewhat forgotten Radeon line of hardware PC components with the addition of a new solid-state drive family called Radeon R3. The devices in the line are budget-oriented but this is not a surprise – when we do not take into account the well-known Radeon video cards, the Radeon line includes mid-range and budget-oriented components with no exceptions.

The new Radeon R3 line of SSDs houses four models with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. They are all based on TLC NAND memory and include Silicon Motion SM2256KX memory controllers. Speed-wise the Radeon R3 models with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB reach read speeds of up to 520 MB/sec, while the 960 GB version is a bit slower at up to 510 MB/sec. As to writing, the 120 GB model writes at up to 360 MB/sec, the 240 GB and 480 GB models write at up to 470 MB/sec, while the 960 GB variant is up to 450 MB/sec fast. All drives are housed in 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch chassis, which make them suitable for notebooks and support the newest SATA 3.0 6 Gb/sec interface.

The new Radeon R3 SSDs sell for USD 40.99 (120 GB model), USD 69.99 (240 GB model), and USD 136.99 (480 GB model). The price of the 960 GB version is unknown as of now.
