"X86 CPU and Radeo graphics chipper AMD has come out with an SSD line using Toshiba/OCZ componentry.
It's called the Radeon R7-Series, which us a sideways extension of existing graphics processor branding."
and that's just in the first two paragraphs. This isn't the first article today that's contained pretty glaring errors.
Their new stuff is very nice - I bought some of their old stuff (Vertex 3 and Vertex 4) when it looked like they were going bust, factory refurbs with a 3 month warranty, scan were practically giving them away. I mainly use them as optional read caches, so it only degrades performance if they die.
Inevitably one bricked, inevitably right after 3 months. By this point Toshiba had bought OCZ, and they replaced it no questions asked with one of their modern Vertex 460, which has worked perfectly ever since.
Have to say I find the not very convincing and pretty random high speed rather less useful than the power fail protection both Crucial SSDs provide. And the MX100 has it with a larger, cheaper drive!
Somehow doubt the AMD name is attractive enough to drive sales. The taint of OCZ definitely is an inhibitor.
