? OCZ does, and plenty of it. And now they've got even more that requires even less power to operate. The company has just introduced next generation ultra-low voltage and extreme-low voltage DDR3 memory kits, with the new solutions offering power savings along with the stability that OCZ
is known for.
Both of these new kits are designed for the desktop. This enthusiast-grade memory complies with the latest JEDEC “DDR3L” low-voltage standards which ensures that system RAM runs cooler and more efficiently during intensive multi-tasking, gaming, and productivity applications. In fact, OCZ Platinum ELV solutions run at only 1.35 volts, with 4GB and 6GB kits on the market. Additionally, OCZ’s new Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit) and Gold ULV memory operate at 1.5 volts for power savings over the maximum recommendation of 1.65V for the latest enthusiast and mainstream Intel platforms. The Reaper and Gold kits are available in 8GB and 12GB sizes for extreme power users, with PC3-12800 (1600MHz) and PC3-10666 (1333MHz) speed ratings up for grabs. Pricing is still TBD.
OCZ Technology Announces Next Generation Ultra-Low and Extreme-Low Voltage DDR3 Memory Kits
New Solutions Offer Significant Power-Savings and Excellent Stability Without Sacrificing Performance on the Latest Platforms
SAN JOSE, CA—September 14, 2010—OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and memory modules for computing devices and systems, unveils new Ultra-Low Voltage (ULV) and Extreme-Low Voltage (ELV) high-speed DDR3 desktop memory, providing the optimal balance of performance and power efficiency in one solution. Committed to staying ahead of the curve, OCZ is offering enthusiast-grade memory that complies with the latest JEDEC “DDR3L” low-voltage standards which ensures that system RAM runs cooler and more efficiently during intensive multi-tasking, gaming, and productivity applications.
“We are pleased to announce a complete range of low-voltage memory offerings designed for the latest crop of energy efficient platforms,” said Eugene Chang, Vice President of Product Management. “In the past, lower voltage meant lower performance, but now with our extreme-low voltage optimized memory, consumers don’t have to sacrifice high performance to also achieve energy savings.”
Developed for next generation platforms, OCZ Platinum ELV solutions run at only 1.35 volts and are the choice counterparts for leading-edge performance and reliability, meeting the demand for high-speed memory to function farther below the upper voltage threshold of Intel® Core™ i3, i5, and i7 processors. With an ideal combination of speed and latency, OCZ Platinum ELV 6GB and 4GB memory kits are specifically designed and qualified on a range of motherboards supporting this low voltage feature.
In addition to ELV solutions, OCZ’s new Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit) and Gold ULV memory operate at 1.5 volts for power savings over the maximum recommendation of 1.65V for the latest enthusiast and mainstream Intel platforms. Furthermore, Reaper and Gold ULV kits are available in high-density 12GB and 8GB configurations, supporting the latest memory-hungry applications and games with superior performance and maximum productivity, all while helping to maintain a cooler case environment.
OCZ DDR3 ELV and ULV triple-channel and dual-channel memory kits are available in PC3-12800 (1600MHz) and PC3-10666 (1333MHz) speed ratings, are 100% hand-tested for quality assurance, and feature propriety XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) and Reaper HPC heatspreaders for more effective heat dissipation. Furthermore, each OCZ module is backed by the OCZ Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.
