I have used 1x4gb stick of this ram in a build for a friend and it worked the same as my G2 Patriot ram. They just put a sticker on it and called it amd.

I don't get calling it Radeon edition, system memory has nothing to do with your graphics card.

intel processor + amd memory + nvidia card... tutti frutti

or maybe an intel processor + amd memory + amd card...

AMD could earn lot of money by selling intel system like these. But What if AMD starts making chipsets for intel processors?
AMD could also make PSUs but its a market overloaded with more than 15 brands to choose from. Not sure sound cards and nics.
