AMD's Radeon memory business is slowing down
From InfoWorld: AMD's Radeon memory business has slowed down, with fewer products available in the U.S. and no new product releases since the introduction of the Polaris GPUs last year.
Products are not being sold by key partners like Newegg, Best Buy, or TigerDirect, and some products are out of or almost out of stock at Amazon.com. Some Radeon DRAM is still being carried on Walmart's website and at specialist tech retailers at discounted prices.
When asked if AMD was exiting the DRAM business and why the memory was out of stock at retailers, a company spokesman said some DRAM stock is being moved around.
"Those are mostly distributed in Eastern Europe, only small quantities are diverted to North America, but we didn’t exit the business," the AMD spokesman said.
The company did not respond to request to questions on whether new Radeon DRAM modules would be released. The DRAM is designed more for older AMD GPU architectures.
