HoggleIt's not really a surprise since imagine they didn't test the SSD with AMD CPU's and all the sudden they find out the drives go to market with a flaw when used with an AMD system. It's simple product testing that they probably do with AMD chipsets and PCI-3.0 drives. It's like saying that a game with a NVIDIA way it's meant to be played logo got tested to run on AMD graphics cards or maybe even has a AMD graphics card listed on the minimum system requirements.
" hey dude, can we get a few samples of your latest processors/ boards over here to run some state-of-the-art testing ? Our stuff isn't able to do that yet ..."
flyinionIt wasn't about needing to test compatibility with AMD, it was that they apparently need AMD systems because there's no Intel systems that support PCIE Gen 4 right now, and they're looking to develop some PCIE Gen 4 stuff.
Cool GTXif I was making a SSD with the Target Market being those who owned AMD based PC ... I'd test on the Same platform & not a cobbled together prototype
GTXJackBauerI don't find this problematic or a big deal. Just testing out on another platform. I'm sure the AMD elfs help AMD do the same in their corporate basement.
