AMD Announces Memory Series Designed With Gamers in Mind

AMD today launched the AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series Memory and Radeon RAMDisk 4.1. AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series Memory is the only memory on the market that offers both XMP and AMP memory profiles in one package, enabling ultimate ease in overclocking on both platforms.

AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series Memory will ship with a free AMD Radeon RAMDisk 64 GB, which features enhanced load-and-save functionality. When paired with an AMD A10 Series APU, AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series Memory will improve frames-per-second (FPS) by up to 22 percent. Gamer Series Memory is part of AMD's Unified Gaming Strategy initiative that places AMD technology at the heart of digital gaming and plays a critical role that enables top performance, an outstanding experience and maximum value for PC gamers everywhere.


"AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series Memory is armed with features designed to outperform the competition on any task," said Roman Kyrychynskyi, product director, Graphics Business Unit, AMD.

Am i correct in thinking there arent many/any FM2 motherboards that support above 1866Mhz memory though?

Just about every board from MSI and Asrock support 2133mhz including the A85x Micro ITX board from Asrock, as well as most of Asus, Biostar, and ECS's higher end boards. Heck even my A55 board from MSI I paid $40 for supports it.

Quick look at Newegg shows some of the FM2 boards supporting DDR3-2600 and many of them supporting DDR3-1866. All of the A85X boards listed go up to DDR3-1866, so that would be the obvious chipset of choice to use.

EDIT: Currently showing in stock at Newegg:

AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-...
AMD Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model AG316G2130U1Q
$154.99

DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)
Timing 10-11-11-30
Cas Latency 10
Voltage 1.65V
Compatible with AMD and Intel processors

AMD will be making 2133 MHz. RAM the default frequency in upcoming APUs. This is currently a good frequency for optimum performance with AMD's APUs. If the RAM is priced competitively, this would be a good choice.

AMD got back into the RAM Biz to support upcoming products so you should be able to guess what is on the way. ;)

Memory controller is on the CPU and this memory is using XMP. It should work with just about any board that supports XMP as it will set the sub-sub-timings you cannot even with a cheap board.

Hopefully these will be better than AMD's first memory debacle. Who is the supplier(manufacturer)?

the APU's really need DDR4 ...
even DDR3 2133 is still a SLIGHT bottle neck its less about the speed and more about the memory architecture DDR4 has more in common with with GDDR making it better suited to handling Frame buffer and Graphics data in Addition to system use bus inversion mainly

I am not sure any bottleneck is from memory. DDR3 should have plenty of bandwidth. It could be from share resources Onemoar.

first amd needs to improve their memory controller and increase available bandwidth. without extra bandwidth, its futile.

there is a significant difference between GDDR3 and GDDR5 cards. as much as 5-10fps!

What debacle? They were sold performing RAM but were a little over priced. That is not a debacle, it was just bad pricing.

And that depends on the card. For a $60 GPU the difference would be nothing.

true but for the APU level A8- A10 ones .i.e 76xx series, it does matter.
