AMD Radeon R7 Series SSD Review Discussion

I wish AMD would have done something special if they put their name onto an SSD. Like giving us an affordable M.2 value drive.

It's not the first licensing deal done, not even the first by OCZ...but yeah, had higher hopes.

I wish AMD had done something unique, like a cool NAND/Controller combo. Something like what Corsair did with the Neutron GTX series. I guess Seagate's SSD's could be considered something of a copycat in that regard.

The problem is, there are fewer options. SandForce controllers are very late and who knows what Seagate is going to do with them. There's Silicon Motion, but everything we've seen from them has been a dog. LAMD still out there too, but again, a very small team. There aren't as many choices as it may appear.

Last I heard, Hynix (which bought LAMD) did not want anyone using their Controller without using Hynix NAND too. I can see the problem there. Maybe there could have been some sort of partnership, since Hynix lacks the distribution that the others have. Maybe they will give these away in bundles or something. Otherwise, there's little reason to choose this over the Vertex and Vector unless the price of these is better than the Vertex.

I was thinking the same thing on the bundles, buy a high-end GPU and find one of these strapped to the side ;) Or maybe an all AMD upgrade kit that has several components. Who knows...
