Today OCZ Technologies announced a tool that allows customers to flash the SPD of their RAM and set it themselves...without voiding the warranty
The tool is a revolution for overclockers and enthusiasts alike and should help you get the most out of your RAM.
|SPD-Z is a tool that allows you to “reflash” the SPD on your OCZ memory for either improved compatibility, improved performance, or in some cases BOTH!|
Delft, Netherlands—August 7, 2007—OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (LSE: OCZ), a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled a revolutionary new tool for end-users to enhanced and stabilize their memory modules when upgrading to a new motherboard. OCZ’s patent-pending SPD-Z Technology is the world’s first means for DIY users to reprogram their memory’s SPD (serial presence detect) and remedy an inefficient module and mainboard interface completely independent of BIOS tweaks. Thanks to this convenient method of reconfiguring the SPD, consumers can now enjoy ultimate compatibility, stability, and performance.
“Tweaks of hardware and firmware have become the primary tool of most computer hardware OEMs to differentiate themselves from the field of competitors, however, in some cases at the expense of compatibility,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “OCZ’s answer to the fragmentation of the market is the patent-pending SPD-Z technology that allows users to select custom SPDs from a library to optimize the interaction between the motherboard and memory firmware.”
The first public beta test of SPD-Z will be available for download on the OCZ Support Forums starting today. OCZ’s renowned technical support staff will be on hand to offer advice and tips for those in need. New SPDs will be added every week and community involvement and discussion is highly encouraged on the forum so OCZ can provide the best level of compatibility and service.
This looks like it could be a revolution in RAM overclocking and certainly is something we'll be keeping a close eye on in the near future.
The tool is here if you're interested. We accept no responsibility for anything happening to your PC at all whatsoever!
OCZ are due to release updates with SPD's for different modules/platforms
Excited by this and want others to know?
