OCZ Technology Announces a New DDR3-1800 Intel Extreme Memory Kit for the Latest Enthusiast Chipset


Sunnyvale, Calif.—December 13, 2007—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced new 1800MHz Intel Extreme Memory modules, a performance solution that implements a specification predefined and specially tailored for the Intel X48 chipset. These top-speed modules are the ideal solution for enthusiasts looking for the extra performance gains optimized memory offers their system.


Designed to significantly increase performance levels of the entire platform, these modules feature Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP), an exclusive set of SPD (Serial Presence Detect) settings that act as an integrated “plug and play” overclocking tool. Configured to Intel’s defined specification, these XMP-Ready memory kits will be configured to run CL8 latencies at 1800 MHz. Furthermore, each OCZ XMP module also features CL7 latencies on a second profile that is qualified by OCZ for the extreme enthusiast seeking tighter timings.


"In the past, the system memory has been confined by chipset and system clocks,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology.  “Intel’s XMP platform redefines the role of the system memory by allowing it to set the pace for the entire system, which in turn positively affects the performance of all other components. This naturally fits the philosophy of OCZ Technology as a performance pioneer, since using the new PC3-14400 XMP Ready memory modules will make the system run faster by providing easy overclocking right out of the box.”

Wish I had like 5 or 6 grand layin around so I could build a new system with a QX9850, an X48 mobo, 4 gigs of that ram, a couple 150gb Raptors in R.A.I.D. 0, a couple Blue Ray burners, a 1200w PSU and Nvidia's upcoming D9E!!!

I am pretty sure I can hold off on DDR3 for a while -- my current setup does the job just fine and TBH, with the very limited performance increase that DDR3 has to offer at this point (mostly cause of the high latencies) I am willing to wait until its more mature.

Still kinda ridiculous to read some of those specs though [:-o]
