OCZ today announced the release of the PC-4000 EL DDR Platinum XTC 1GB module and 2GB dual channel kit. The industry-leading OCZ Platinum series PC-4000 with 3-3-3-8 timings features extremely low latency for a 1GB capacity product, and is designed specifically to address the unique demands placed on PCs by enthusiasts and gamers. The PC-4000 Platinum XTC 1024MB series is rated to handle 500MHz speeds with the ultra-low latency timings of 3-3-3 and is built with leading-edge components resulting in unsurpassed effective data bandwidth to enhance overall system performance without compromising stability. To make this premium solution more readily available to gamers, the PC-4000 EL Platinum XTC parts will be offered at a lower price point than its predecessor, the PC-4000 Platinum EB series.

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the release of the PC-4000 EL DDR Platinum XTC 1GB module and 2GB dual channel kit. The industry-leading OCZ Platinum series PC-4000 with 3-3-3-8 timings features extremely low latency for a 1GB capacity product, and is designed specifically to address the unique demands placed on PCs by enthusiasts and gamers.

As high-speed PC users transition from the previous advisory of 1024MBs of DDR memory to 2GB (2x1024MB) memory solutions for optimal system performance, OCZ is committed to offering the highest performing high-density products available. The PC-4000 Platinum XTC 1024MB series is rated to handle 500MHz speeds with the ultra-low latency timings of 3-3-3 and is built with leading-edge components resulting in unsurpassed effective data bandwidth to enhance overall system performance without compromising stability.

“Common knowledge still dictates that the benefits of increased system memory will be mitigated by introducing higher latencies,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Our answer to this technical challenge is the new PC-4000 Platinum XTC product line, a direct result of devoting substantial technical resources to R&D. The DDR500 Platinum XTC offers the benefits of the lowest latencies in its class, in combination with the highest consumer level density per module.”

Each 1GB PC-4000 XTC module features a high-quality, platinum mirrored XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreader for the most effective heat dissipation possible by promoting greater airflow by means of micro-convection throughout what is usually the dead air space inside conventional heatspreader designs.

To make this premium solution more readily available to gamers, the PC-4000 EL Platinum XTC parts will be offered at a lower price point than its predecessor, the PC-4000 Platinum EB series.
