Most people think that all memory is generic, and pretty much the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, if you’re building a system to be reckoned with (and I know that many of you are) you don’t want to skimp in this department. It can be tempting: the difference in price between high-quality, performance oriented RAM and a couple of sticks of average memory can be in the hundreds of dollars. That’s alot to shell out for something that has very similar, if not the same, numbers on the side of the package. But consider this: in every other computer component you’ve assembled for your machine, you get what you paid for. Why would memory be any different?
One company has decided to make it’s memory modules decidely different. Entering the memory market in August 2000, OCZ Technology was built around the determination to manufacture the best high speed DDR and RDRAM. OCZ was founded By enthusiasts, For enthusiastsâ€”and their commitment to the end-user performance has not digressed. Since inception, OCZ Technology has been an innovator in many areas: They were the first manufacturer to make Dual Channel optimized memory available to the public. OCZ was the first to develop (and implement) ULN technology, which has since been a constant and critical element in the manufacturing process.
OCZ developers diligently work to improve communication between the CPU and motherboard chipset manufacturers prior to the release of their products; this way, they can fine-tune memory SPD settings. This ensures a synergistic relationship between the memory module, memory controller, and microprocessor. In todayâ€™s rapidly evolving semiconductor industry, this kind of communication is not just a research goal– it’s a necessary component in quality manufacturing and developmental processes.
Get all that? What you need to know is that OCZ is putting out some of the finest performance memory on the market, from water-cooled models right down through the distinctive “Reaper” line. They’ve got thier hands in the breakthrough world of Flash Memory and solid-state research, too–so you definitely want to be running OCZ hardware now and in the future. This is a company to watch, so stay tuned….TigerDirect.com, TigerTV, and our intrepid hosts are sure to keep the new and innovative products from OCZ highlighted right here, on TigerDirectNews.com.
