    AMD branching out to SSDs with Radeon-branded SSDs

    Apparently not just satisfied with its Radeon lineup of graphics cards, AMD has already extended the brand into desktop and laptop RAM and is now looking to jump into the highly competitive solid-state-drive market, according to

    The site claims that Radeon SSDs will be hitting store shelves soon, though it has no specifics on timing, pricing, or tech specs. It's also unclear how the drives would be manufactuered, though presumably a third-party source would be used since AMD has no current capacity to build the drives.

    This sounds real interesting. I was reading a different article about this and it said that using the same overclock utility from AMD, OverDrive I believe, you can control EVERY piece of the hardware: CPU/APU, graphics card, RAM, and SSD.
