OCZ today announced the release of the first DDR2 modules designed to make use of the recently introduced OCZ XTC heatspreader design. The Gold series modules will come in PC2-4200 and PC2-5400 configurations ranging from 512MB modules to 2GB dual channel optimized kits. Operating at 4-4-4 and 5-5-5 timings, these DDR2-533 and DDR2-667 solutions offer lower latencies than standard DDR2 modules. DDR2 XTC will be offered in 2GB dual channel kits for the ultimate memory upgrade for the latest graphic-intensive PC games, such as Battlefield 2, Half Life 2, Doom 3, and Quake 4, which deliver the best end-user experience with 2GB+ of memory.

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, today announced the release of the
first DDR2 modules designed to make use of the recently introduced OCZ XTC
heatspreader design. The Gold series modules will come in PC2-4200 and PC2-5400
configurations ranging from 512MB modules to 2GB dual channel optimized kits.

The Gamer eXtreme 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.

Both PC2-4200 and PC2-5400 GX XTC modules offer superior stability and
performance for the modern Intel gaming platform. Operating at 4-4-4 and 5-5-5
timings, these DDR2-533 and DDR2-667 solutions offer lower latencies than
standard DDR2 modules. DDR2 XTC will be offered in 2GB dual channel kits for the
ultimate memory upgrade for the latest graphic-intensive PC games, such as
Battlefield 2, Half Life 2, Doom 3, and Quake 4, which deliver the best end-user
experience with 2GB+ of memory.

“Based on the overwhelmingly positive results and feedback on the XTC
heatspreaders, we believe that we need to make XTC available for a wider
spectrum of modules than originally planned,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP
of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. "By employing XTC heatspreaders on
our premium Gold DDR2 GX memory we are able to offer high-end gamers and
enthusiasts a superior solution that addresses the unique requirements of the
latest 3D intensive titles.”

All OCZ PC2-4200 and PC2-5400 Gold GX XTC Edition modules are 100% hand-tested
for quality assurance and compatibility and feature high quality, gold-mirrored
XTC heatspreaders for the most effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ
Gold series module is backed by the industry leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and
technical support for unparalleled peace of mind. The combination of the award
winning XTC series and cutting-edge OCZ DDR2 architecture is the ultimate
formula for incredible performance from Intel systems.
