This seems like it will be a good relationship for both AMD and Patriot. Patriot makes some solid memory and making the memory selection easy with AMD chips will be great for someone looking for a simple build.
Ugghhh This makes no sense to me at all. OCZ exited the memory business because of lack of margins and to focus on SSD's.
Why do we need another player in the memory business Corsair, Crucial, Mushkin ect are doing a fabulous job.
I hope AMD has a plan because so far I see nothing of a roadmap to get them back competitive. Burning cash only.
@ThunderBird it isn't exactly a new player. Patriot has been making memory for quite a while and will simply be branding memory they make for AMD who will be certifying it.
I think its a cool idea, even though im rocking some g skill ram.
I'd see the point if AMD introduced 1600 and up, as reviews have shown that Llano benefits from faster rated memory, and it seems Bulldozer (I had to hold my tongue/fingers from not saying something bad about it) benefits from 1866 and up, but 1333?
I agree with Thunderbird, there are better uses for AMD's limited resources. Focus on a couple or a trio of things and excel, then cast the net wide when they actually have the cash.
it might work out, however I would rather them focus on i dont know, CPUs so i'm not let down
CPU: e6400 @ 3.2 (H-50'd)MB: MSI p6nRAM: 4G adataGPU: GTS-450 and 8800GTS for PhysxHDD: WD 500G BlackPSU: 620W Corsair Mod.Case: 900-2 with 7 cathodes and AP-15sOS: W7 and Ubuntu
So this is the AMD memory I've read a while back... So far it looks good and it's a good business proposition for both AMD and Patriot, the memory supplier supplying the memory. It's a nice way for Patriot to get some memory sticks out there and it's a nice way for AMD to guarantee that they have memory that'll work with their system.
With any luck, it should sell well when they first release it.

Seems like the "SLI" memory of the past. its just extra bs in the end...

Patriot Pyro 128gb SSD
"Well, if these RAM modules will come out in Feb of next year, than I would imagine Piledriver *Trinity* will be ready around that time too. Would make sense for these AMD branded Ram and the new APU's to be bought together."
This looks like a really good direction for AMD at this point.
The memory looks to be quality stuff, and if they can compete on price, it's yet another market for them to break into. :)
just return that hyper x. profit!
good move though.love patriot RAMs.
