AMD Releases R3 Series of SSDs

 

AMD has just released their new R3 series of SSDs, offering some competitive pricing and a Radeon themed aesthetic.

These SSDs are designed to deliver great pricing, using TLC NAND and using a Silicon motion SM2256KX controller, which is the same controller that is used in a lot of popular SSDs today. This SSD will come with a 3-year warranty and is fully compatible with both AMD and Intel hardware. 

 

     Superior in value and performance. Get up to 10x the speed of a traditional hard drive. Bring new life to your tired PC for far less cost than you would expect.

Being a Value oriented SSD we never expected to see this SSD achieve chart-topping performance, but the 240GB model and above are able to achieve speeds of 520MB/s reads and 470MB/s writes, which is pretty good for a budget oriented SSD. 

Full specifications for the AMD Radeon R3 SSD below.

Right now these SSDs are available in the US and Canada, with the US pricing being as follows, $40.99 for the 120GB model, $69.99 for the 240GB model and $136.99 for the 480GB model. These prices came from Amazon US.

And yet, Mushkin 4TB SSD was mentioned a whilst back at a potential $500 price point, vs $136.99 for 480gb AMD? You do the maths Quote

Mushkin is using 3D MLC flash that it has managed to source from one of the Nand manufacturers extremely cheaply hence the awesome price of the 4TB SSD, Something not a lot of companies can do right now.Quote
