OCZ announced the release of the fastest memory product available on the market—a new DDR2 series capable of 1000MHz (1GHz) speeds at CAS 4 latency (4-5-4). The PC2-8000 DDR2 Platinum XTC Extreme Edition was designed to be the ultimate memory solution for today’s PC enthusiasts that demand leading-edge PC hardware. The new 1GHz DDR2 series will be available in two latency variations; At DDR2-1000, the PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Edition operates at exceptional 5-5-5-15 timings, whereas the PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Extreme Edition is rated at the unprecedented timings of 4-5-4-15. Both parts are offered in capacities ranging from 512MB modules to 2GB (2×1024) dual channel kits.

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, today announced the release of the
fastest memory product available on the market—a new DDR2 series capable of
1000MHz (1GHz) speeds at CAS 4 latency (4-5-4). The PC2-8000 DDR2 Platinum XTC
Extreme Edition was designed to be the ultimate memory solution for today’s PC
enthusiasts that demand leading-edge PC hardware.

OCZ Technology, upholding a legacy of innovation and commitment to the
enthusiast, developed the new PC2-8000 Platinum XTC series to advance next
generation platforms to the next performance level, ensuring enthusiasts are not
restricted by the limitations of their memory. No other company offers CAS 4
latency at 1GHz, making these ground-breaking modules the industry’s fastest
memory.

The new 1GHz DDR2 series will be available in two latency variations; At
DDR2-1000, the PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Edition operates at exceptional 5-5-5-15
timings, whereas the PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Extreme Edition is rated at the
unprecedented timings of 4-5-4-15. Both parts are offered in capacities ranging
from 512MB modules to 2GB (2×1024) dual channel kits.

"We are proud to carry on our tradition of achieving both latency and speed
breakthroughs," said Ryan Petersen, CEO, OCZ Technology. "While our dedication
and focus has always been to produce high-performance products for PC
enthusiasts, our new PC2-8000 Platinum XTC Extreme Edition is not just a product
aimed solely at PC enthusiasts, but a ground-breaking solution that will lead
the industry to produce DDR2 platforms that showcase the performance strengths
of DDR2 as a technology."

The unique design used in the award winning XTC heatspreaders optimizes the
thermal management of memory modules by promoting greater airflow than
conventional heatspreader designs. All OCZ Technology memory is backed by an
industry-leading Lifetime Warranty and direct Technical Support.
