OCZ Technology Group Unveils Worldâ€™s First Intel Extreme Memory Modules
Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 10, 2007 – OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced production of the industryâ€™s first Intel Extreme Memory modules, a new memory solution that implements a high-performance specification optimized and predefined for the impending Intel X38 chipset.
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. With a long history of providing the most innovative products to the enthusiast community, OCZ is excited to take advantage of Intelâ€™s interest and development of overclocking platforms.
“It is truly a milestone in personal computing to see Intel support overclocking,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “The new Extreme Memory Profile options on the new OCZ DDR3 modules allow the end user to select extreme or ultimate performance through a framework of predefined and validated optimizations of individual settings without the hassle of manually adjusting each single parameter. Moreover, the predefined settings also adjust parameters that are not accessible to the user in most CMOS setup utilities. What this means for consumers is easy overclocking on Intel platforms right out of the box.”
Configured to Intelâ€™s defined specification, the industryâ€™s first XMP-Ready memory will be available as OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 1GB (1024MB) Modules and are configured to run 8-8-8 latencies. Furthermore, each OCZ XMP module also features 7-6-6 latencies on a second profile that is qualified by OCZ for the extreme enthusiast. Each OCZ XMP memory module is backed by the industry-leading OCZ Lifetime Warranty and technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.
