The new SATA Express (SATAe) and M.2 standards are hot topics in the storage world at the moment, and SATAe is one of the more interesting features of the new Intel Z97-based motherboards. Now it looks like it won't be long until AMD counters with support of its own. Well, kind of.

ASMedia is reportedly licensing their SATA Express IP to AMD for an upcoming platform. Didn't know that ASMedia already had a SATAe implementation? The ASUS Z97 Deluxe board which Morry recently reviewed uses an ASMedia controller for one of its two SATAe ports, along with one powered by the chipset.

We can only speculate on the "next gen" platform from AMD mentioned in the report, and it will be interesting to see what kind of performance numbers might be seen from this alleged product.

Poor AMD always behind the times. Letting Intel and Nvidia do all the work. Steps in a year or 2 later.

Any wonder why they're profitable?

Nvidia will like to thank you for your money and hopes you didn't hit the wall with your head too hard when 780ti come out.
Nvidia also will happily like to inform you that the next driver will expand your epenis by 3 millimeters(which is about 30% more compare with today's size).

lol how does it feel to have paid $2,000 while I paid half that a couple months later?

Titan owners got the shaft as did even the first adopters of the GTX 780 when they immediately dropped the prices another $150.

Nvidia is great at milking the market.
