OCZ release DDR3 modules
The first OCZ DDR3 products will pick up where their high-end DDR2 memory left off and offer Gold Series memory kits in PC3-8500 (1066MHz) and PC3-10666 (1333MHz) speed grades. Both modules operate at 1.6V, with latency timings of 7-7-7-21 for the PC3-8500 and 9-9-9-26 for the PC3-10666.
OCZ claim that “Each module is 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and feature proprietary gold-mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. As part of OCZ?s line-up of premium memory, the DDR3 series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace of mind”
For the past few years, we have highly anticipated DDR3, since it is everything DDR2 should have been from the very beginning,? commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. ?Being part of the task group defining the serial presence detect and extended feature set of DDR3 has further increased our commitment to the third generation of double data rate memory and we are ready to break some new performance records.
