AMD and OCZ to launch Radeon branded SSDs?

AMD's Radeon branded memory modules weren't a big success but it seems the company is poised to continue in this direction by making an entry into the SSD market. FUD Zilla claims AMD is in talks with Toshiba (the new owner of OCZ) to launch Radeon branded solid state disks. Reportedly, the whole idea is not to focus on performance but on bundles and economics.
AMD will soon announce its first SSD drive that will come with an OCZ controller, most likely from the Barefoot series, and of course AMD will use Toshiba’s NAND memory. Toshiba has 19nm based NAND memory coming straight from its state of the art fabs, so AMD wants to take advantage of it.

An AMD team was responsible for the specification of the drive, the SSD drive was tailored specially to meet AMD’s needs.

With this in mind, AMD will soon be able to offer better bundles with a CPU, motherboard, graphics card, memory and now even a storage solution. It seems like a nice way of making a few more dollars from desktop bundles and OEM deals.
