OCZ Launches XMP Memory Modules for Notebooks
Ultra-fast mobile microprocessors have been around for a while, so have been super-fast SSDs; however advanced memory modules for laptops have been missing. OCZ has stepped in to fill this gap with its extra memory profiles based SODIMM memory modules.
Targeted at gaming-oriented notebooks and desktop replacement (DTR) notebooks and desktops, the SODIMMs combine with the Core 2 Extreme range of mobile processors to boost the front-side bus of a compatible system by using Intel’s Extreme Memory Profile settings. This effectively results in an Intel-approved overclock.
OCZ has launched the memory modules in two versions – as 4GB kits and as single 2GB SODIMMs. The modules are clocked at 1066MHz, CL-6-6-6 latencies and 1.6V power supply and will retail as OCZ DDR3 PC3-8500 XMP-Ready. While the company will be providing lifetime warranty, pricing details have not been released.
