AMD is launching a new family of products today, but unless you follow the rumor mill pretty closely, it’s probably not something you’d expect. It’s not a new CPU or APU. And it’s not a new GPU or memory kit either. Well then, “what could it be” you ask? Today, AMD is launching its first line of solid state drives (SSDs), targeted squarely at AMD enthusiasts.

It's great to see another player enter the fray because more competition = better prices for us consumers. [Y]
I admit, I was skeptical but not a bad offering at all!

High performance, and good looking for a reasonable price. Gotta love that!
