OCZ Technology Announces New PC2-8000 4GB Platinum Edition Memory to offer Mainstream Enthusiasts an Affordable Overclocking Kit


Sunnyvale, CA—January 17, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced the PC2-8000 Platinum Edition 4GB dual channel kit, designed to boost the performance of mainstream gaming systems. These new 2GB modules are the ultimate upgrade for entry-level enthusiasts seeking an exceptional overclocking kit at a price point that suits all budgets.


As part of OCZ’s Platinum series, the PC2-8000 2GB modules are engineered to satisfy the demands of overclockers and enthusiasts, and designed to deliver the performance and speed gamers require for today’s graphic-intensive DirectX 10 PC games. At a blistering 1000MHz, the 4GB Platinum Edition runs at faster speeds than typical 2GB modules, offering incredible bandwidth and stability on the latest platforms.


“System memory density is a significant cost factor in the overall configuration of any personal computer,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “However, retrofitting a system with an abundance of memory does not necessarily translate into having to spend an abundance of cash. By releasing quality products like the PC2-8000 2GB modules at a low price point, OCZ Technology once again demonstrates the commitment to providing the customers with the best possible solution in the market place.”

OCZ always aims to please. There customer service is also top notch.

Honestly, the prices of tese 2x2gb kits has become insane! Memory is so cheap right now, but it will rise with the adoption of DDR3 and Nehalem...DDR2 will get less demand while DDR3 prices will drop due to demand. Right now is a great time for cost effective memory ^_^.

Are you running 1:1 atm? Cause those Crucial Modules can go higher than ddr2-800 spec. Most people get them to around ddr2-1000. No point in dishing out more cash really...You have 4 gigs, you should save your money for something more useful =D. Like a new graphics card =P.

 I am not a gamer so my card does serve my purpose. Although when the new cards come out and the prices drop and I will most likely get a new card. And yes I run them at 1:1.
