It’s been a while since AMD expanded their product range, the last we saw was the Radeon branded memory. Now they are at it again, and this time it’s gaming SSDs. The Radeon R7 Gaming SSD will come in the usual sizes of 120, 240 and 480 GB.
The disks will be build upon the A19nm Toshiba Multi Level Cell (MLC) Flash design and the Barefoot 3 controller. Encryption will be supported in the form of 256-bit AES and the disk is rated for 30GB/day and come with a 4 year warranty.
The drives are rated for 550 MB/s read speed at 100k random IOPS and 530 MB/s write speed with 90k IOPS. Having those great figures, AMD has lined up a comparison with the competition in form of a graph.
At the time of writing there are no news on pricing yet. Considering both the R7 name and AMDs overall business model one could assume them to be very affordable.
