- 1600MHz in matched pairs
- 1866MHz in matched pairs
The high-end performance modules are are tuned, tested and certified for specific AMD platforms.
No word on pricing yet but AMD’s memory DIMMs wil be available through major retails including Amazon.com, Bestbuy.ca, Fry’s, Memory Express, Micro Center, NCIX, Newegg, Tiger Direct, VIP Computers (UK) and others in the near future. s
