 OCZ DDR3 1066 & 1333 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.
