OCZ Announces New DDR3-1333 Kits Page: 1
OCZ today announced two new Reaper HPC solutions for enthusiasts upgrading to next generation of cutting-edge platforms. The PC3-10666 Reaper HPC Series is available in both 2GB and 4GB dual channel kits to meet the specific needs of customized gaming systems or workstations, offering perfect compatibility with the latest platforms and chipsets at a price that will be attractive to upgraders with a specific budget in mind.
With the high frequencies of DDR3 comes added heat that can damage the module’s sensitive ICs. To ensure superior stability and performance over the entire life of the modules, the Reaper HPC Series makes use of an innovative cooling solution to more effectively dissipate heat produced by high-speed memory. The thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit is ideal for overclocking where every degree matters, making certain that your cutting-edge investment will maintain its integrity throughout the toughest gaming missions, overclocking, or intense program applications.
“DDR3 has gained the undisputed edge as a performance-leading solution in computer memory, yet extreme performance comes at a price,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology at OCZ Technology. “However, with the general trend of DDR3 prices declining, lower speed grades of DDR3 are about to reach price parity with high-end DDR2, allowing the user to embrace the new memory standard within a reasonable budget. Particularly for those who upgrade their systems one component at the time, the new DDR3-1333 Reaper kits are a perfect match, delivering the fundamental performance benefits of the DDR3 architecture in a heatpipe-based thermal management solution while keeping the path open for any future upgrade to extreme performance components.”
Mmm, some nice looking Reapers right there. But is DDR3 worth it yet? Discuss on our forum.
