OCZ Technology Announces New DDR3-1333 Kits in the Award-Winning Reaper HPC Series

Sunnyvale, CA—February 21, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in
innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced
two new Reaper HPC solutions for enthusiasts upgrading to next generation of
cutting-edge platforms. The PC3-10666 Reaper HPC Series is available in both 2GB
and 4GB dual channel kits to meet the specific needs of customized gaming
systems or workstations, offering perfect compatibility with the latest
platforms and chipsets at a price that will be attractive to upgraders with a
specific budget in mind.

With the high
frequencies of DDR3 comes added heat that can damage the module’s sensitive ICs.
To ensure superior stability and performance over the entire life of the
modules, the Reaper HPC Series makes use of an innovative cooling solution to
more effectively dissipate heat produced by high-speed memory. The
thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit is ideal for overclocking where every
degree matters, making certain that your cutting-edge investment will maintain
its integrity throughout the toughest gaming missions, overclocking, or intense
program applications ...

The whole idea of having a 4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10666) kit sounds good to me.

Indeed, but I'm waiting for prices to come down. I'll get a 4gb kit when it can be had for $450 or less.

 $150 or less sounds good to me; I mean just take a look at DDR2 prices, it'll be sweet once DDR3 gets to the same price level.

I'll take 2GHz clock speeds even if latencies are a bit higher, any day. Will be interesting to see how OCZ's new stuff compares to Corsair!

lol, just imagine a 2000Mhz DDR3 memory with 4-4-4-12 timings. That would be insane. :)

Davo: I'm REALLY excited regarding DDR3 when it comes to Nehalem. I'm dying to see how well they perform. Most of us know that there is no point in nabbing ddr3 atm considering the FSB architecture of intel processors. the Athlon X2's show the memory bandwidth when a IMC is involved. Considering the performance claims for Nehalem, it will be great to see DDR3 in tripple channel (and eventually quad ^_^) flavors with Nehalems IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) and QPI (Quick Path Interconnect). When Nehalem benchmarks are revealed, the x86 cpu community will be extatic =D.

All the new stuff on the horizon is easy to get excited about, but if I were to win the 8 core beastie I'd quickly forget about what's coming up lol!

 LOL! Indeed man. I hear you on that. But even so, if I did win and still upgraded to nehalem, I'd just nab two budget boards, cases, and psu's. Throw in these tasty penryn quad extreme editions, and just use them for 24/7 foldings for hothardware ^_^...Win win if you ask me Wink. I'm really curious on how the performance difference will be between Nehalem and the core architecture, honestly, if it's seriously going to perform as hyped as they say it is (why not? they were right about netburst to core transition), than the gains might still be worth going nehalem.
