OCZ Technology Premium Memory Line Expands with the Introduction of Next Generation DDR3 Memory Modules

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced their official crossover into DDR3 memory to coincide with the recent launch of the Intel Bearlake Chipset. OCZ’s hand-tested DDR3 solutions enable ardent enthusiasts to take advantage of the highly-anticipated P35 platform while experiencing the legendary quality and reliability of OCZ memory.

“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.”

The first OCZ DDR3 products will accommodate standard JEDEC specifications for third generation DDR. OCZ is pleased 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.

OCZ Gold DDR3 modules will be initially available in 2x512MB and 2x1024MB dual channel kits. These modules are currently available in limited quantity and OCZ has been working closely with the leading platform providers to ensure optimal performance and compatibility on all the next generation computing platforms that will be introduced later this year. 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.

Mr. Smith
But... The r600 has plenty of mem bandwidth... That is not the problem... Giving the r700 more bandwidth... Wha...?

I'm glad that PCI express 2.0 is backwards-compatible. It bothers me when new bus technologies for expensive things like graphics cards come out and are forced on to us, even if the current products aren't saturating the bus. Then when you buy a new motherboard, you can buy a new one and have to also buy a new card, or buy an old outdated one which isn't much better than your current one. If PCI-E 2.0 was a whole new slot I would be upset, because we'd all have to buy new cards when we upgrade, even those people with brand new 8800 Ultras. On top of that, many current PCI-E cards don't even saturate the x8 bus.

On a side note...PCIe 3.0 speeds are looking impressive
