OCZ Announces New DDR3 Low-Voltage Dual Channel Kits for Intel P55 Platform
OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today unveiled low-voltage DDR3 designed specifically for the upcoming Intel P55 Chipset and subsequent Intel Core i7, i5, and i3 (Socket 1156) processors. Configured for dual channel mode, these ultra-compatible 4GB kits ensure optimal performance with an ideal combination of low power requirements and high frequencies.
Developed for cost-conscious enthusiasts and gamers, these new OCZ modules were engineered with the same affordability and performance standards as the new Lynnfield platform. By using sophisticated IC screening methods and qualifying on a variety of motherboards, OCZ low-voltage kits are the perfect complement for the P55 Chipset and choice CPU to deliver the maximum stability. Together, P55 and OCZ memory are the premium option for the midrange desktops.
"OCZ is excited to introduce a complete range of new DDR3 dual channel memory kits that are engineered specifically for Intel's cutting edge P55 platform," commented Alex Mei, CMO for the OCZ Technology Group. "These gaming kits make use of high quality hand screened chips to deliver exceptional performance and stability at surprisingly low voltages when paired with the latest Intel processors and chipset."
"I'm always excited to see the innovation that takes place when Intel's new performance platforms are introduced into the market. In this case, OCZ & Intel are proud to deliver products that increase system responsiveness at affordable prices," said Steve R. Peterson, Intel's Director of Chipset Group Marketing. "The ability for a Do-It-Yourself enthusiast to build a screaming PC and still have money left over to buy some new PC games or Blu-ray videos, makes the upcoming platform introduction a hit for people of all ages."
The company has released several new memory kits, available as part of the company's Gold and Platinum lines of low-voltage memory modules. Available in kits of 2x2GB modules, the new DDR3 memory from OCZ can be found in several configurations, boasting different latency specifications. From 7-7-7-20 to 10-10-10-27, these new solutions are expected to provide consumers with a memory choice for their upcoming Intel-based mainstream desktop systems.
Aside from the high level of performance that they can provide, the new modules have been equipped with the company's XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreaders, designed to effectively dissipate the heat over the memory ICs. Unfortunately, OCZ hasn't released any details regarding the pricing and availability of its new memory kits, but they should become available really soon, following the official introduction of Intel's much-anticipated mainstream platform refresh.
