OCZ 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. 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 today’s hard core gamers and enthusiasts.

OCZ 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 today’s 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 OCZ’s 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.
