OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled a revolutionary new tool
for end-users to enhanced and stabilize their memory modules when upgrading to a
new motherboard. OCZ’s patent-pending SPD-Z Technology is the world’s first
means for DIY users to reprogram their memory’s SPD (serial presence detect) and
remedy an inefficient module and mainboard interface completely independent of
BIOS tweaks. Thanks to this convenient method of reconfiguring the SPD,
consumers can now enjoy ultimate compatibility, stability, and performance.

“Tweaks of hardware and firmware have become the primary tool of most computer
hardware OEMs to differentiate themselves from the field of competitors,
however, in some cases at the expense of compatibility,” commented Dr. Michael
Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “OCZ’s answer to the
fragmentation of the market is the patent-pending SPD-Z technology that allows
users to select custom SPDs from a library to optimize the interaction between
the motherboard and memory firmware.”

The first public beta test of SPD-Z will be available for download on the OCZ
Support Forums starting today. OCZ’s renowned technical support staff will be on
hand to offer advice and tips for those in need. New SPDs will be added every
week and community involvement and discussion is highly encouraged on the forum
so OCZ can provide the best level of compatibility and service.
