    They shold have gone with another company, i hate patriot i have had too many ram sticks fail... I am sticking to corsair myself. But good luck to AMD hopefully they can make a recovery, and i am sure they will sell enough of these anyway.

    The new patriot ram and ssd's are brilliant. I've got 8x 4GB (32GB Total) Patriot G2 DDRIII 1600 and a Patriot Wildfire SSD and I have had no issues with them at all. Yes Patriot got a bit of a bad rep couple of years ago when they went of the map but they are back with a vengeance.

    Because they are just coming back into SA, the prices are really competitive on the normal Patriot stuff, as for the amd branded patriots im not sure.

    Okay fair enough companies do turn around... So i shall take your word on this Joker cause i know you are very much the person to goto with these things, I will give them a run if they are as good as you say then corsair is out of my PC builds and Patriot is in for the cheaper PCs anyway... Need reliable parts these days.

    Hmmm... I would've at least been mildly excited if it wasn't just re-branded stuff...

    C'mon AMD!
    Pick up the pace boys!

    Once upon a time in 2007 I bought 4x1GB DDR2 800 Patriot value RAM, and a 2GB Patriot USB stick. All still working to this day. Thus ends my fascinating tale of Patriot branded hardware usage.

    The ram field is highly competitive. I can't se them making huge ripples.

    AMD needs to sort out their processors as that market (like the gpu one) is ripe.

    As for patriot, they're not bad. In technology massive swings in quality are easy... swinging continually in the right direction is difficult.

    /silently wishes samsung would make better hdd's, ssd's and ram.

    "multiplatform"... the word that ruins games for PC gamers.

    Well, I am currently awaiting rma for 2x sets of corsair ram, both of which died within 3 months of purchase. I've had the patriots since they launched and can't report any issues.
    Price wise 2x4GB Patriot G2 DDRIII 1600 will set you back roughly R500 which is seriously cheap for good ram.

    Also I build rigs in my spare time as you know, and a lot of people "want what they want" even when I recommend to use certain parts, they'll argue and say yes but this and that said that those are crap and bla bla. I work with this stuff on a weekly basis I go through ram and gpu's like most people go through paper. When I recommend something it means I really believe in it.
