Nuove memorie DDR2-800 da OCZ
Assieme a Corsair, OCZ è uno dei produttori di memorie di sistema più attenti allo sviluppo di soluzioni per appassionati di tweaking e overclock, presentando periodicamente nuove memorie adatte ad essere spinte a frequenze molto elevate. E' il caso delle nuove soluzioni EL DDR2 PC2-6400 Platinum XTC Edition, che come il nome lascia intendere sono in standard DDR2 e operano alla frequenza di clock di 800 Mhz.
I moduli sono caratterizzati da latenze di accesso leggermente inferiori a quelle da specifica JEDEC per i moduli DDR2-800; troviamo infatti timings programmati di default pari a 4-5-4-15. I dissipatori di calore XTC, Xtreme Thermal Convection, permettono secondo OCZ di dissipare al meglio il calore generato durante il funzionamento dai moduli memoria, con benefici effetti soprattutto in fase di overclock.
Le caratteristiche tecniche di questo prodotto sono le seguenti:
- 800MHz DDR2
- CL 4-5-4-15 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
- Available in 512MB modules and 1GB (2x512MB) Dual Channel Optimized Kits
- Platinum Mirrored XTC Heatspreader*
- Lifetime Warranty
- 2.1 Volts
- 240 Pin DIMM
Di seguito il comunicato stampa ufficiale rilasciato dal produttore:
Sunnyvale, CAJanuary 30, 2006OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the highly-anticipated Platinum XTC memory series. The first inclusion to the new series will be the PC2-6400 EL Platinum Edition XTC, engineered to implement the recently introduced and highly commended OCZ XTC heatspreader design.
The Platinum XTC DDR2 series features the innovative XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) Heatspreaders. The unique design used in the XTC heatspreaders optimizes the thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader designs. In this manner, build-up of heat is avoided and thermal dissipation of the memory components is offloaded more efficiently through the honeycomb design. At the same time, mechanical stability is maintained.
In addition to offering gamers and overclockers an enhanced thermal solution for their memory, the PC2-6400 Platinum XTC series delivers exceptional next generation DDR2 performance and stability. At DDR2-800, these modules are rated to run at 4-5-4 timings offering lower latencies than standard DDR2 modules and giving high-end Intel based systems that extra performance edge that is demanded by todays hard core gamers and enthusiasts.
From a price/performance viewpoint, DDR2 is becoming increasingly attractive. To fill the growing demand, we specifically developed the OCZ PC2-6400 EL DDR 512MB and 1GB kit for the extreme gamer and overclocker, commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. In short, the combination of OCZs Extended Voltage protection with the latest generation of ultra-fast components allows our customers to push the performance envelope beyond the limitations of the first generation of DDR in a thermally sound environment, courtesy of the XTC heatspreaders.
The implementation of the innovative XTC heatspreaders on our Gold memory modules offered serious gamers superior cooling for their hard working memory, stated Alex Mei, VP of Marketing, OCZ Technology. By employing XTC heatspreaders on our new Platinum modules we are able to deliver a superior product for enthusiasts looking for the ultimate overclocking solution.
All PC2-6400 Platinum XTC Edition modules are 100% hand-tested for quality assurance and compatibility and feature high quality, platinum-mirrored XTC heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ Platinum series module is backed by the industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind. With the fusion of the award-winning XTC series and cutting-edge, high-speed OCZ DDR2 architecture, the PC2-6400 Platinum XTC edition is the ultimate breakthrough for remarkable Intel platform performance.
