With Intelâ€™s gradual release of chipsets that can support third generation DDR memory, such as P35, X38 and X48, the call to open up to future technology has now been greater. The reign of DDR2 memory modules is finally drawing to a close, especially now that the latest motherboards have greater capacities for overclocking by increasing the front side bus speed.
DDR3 memory is fast becoming the memory of choice, primarily because this technology prefetches 8 bits per clock cycle, meaning I/Os are run at eight times the core clock frequency. If you are a memory enthusiast who wants a kit of ram that offers more than just loads of overclocking potential, get the OCZ Platinum Dual Channel 2048MB PC3-10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory.
Finally: High Speed, Dual Channel DDR3 Memory that will make Your Head Spin.
Coming from one of the leading players in the memory industry, the OCZ Platinum Dual Channel 2048MB PC3-10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory have been hand tested to ensure delivery of latencies rated at a tight 7-7-7-20 timing, thanks in part to integrated Elpida memory IC’s.
However, what this DDR3 memory module can offer is not just higher data rate thatâ€™s perfect for overclocking. It also uses less power compared with the older DDR2 modules, because it only needs 1.8v. At 1333MHz, this is the current mainstream choice because it falls between the entry level 1066 MHz and high-performance 1600 MHz standards that fill the spectrum.
Thereâ€™s no need to fret about a computer crash now because the OCZ Platinum Dual Channel 2048MB PC3-10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory is physically designed like the rest of the memory modules in OCZâ€™s DDR3 range. Its platinum heatsinks promote better air flow across the entire module as compared with the standard alloy and copper heatspreaders that can be found in most modules. The secret lies also in the signature honeycomb design that effectively dissipates heat. Through this clever cooling solution, heat build-up is avoided, allowing for mechanical stability of the memory components.
And if you are a performance enthusiast concerned about accidentally exposing your memory to a higher voltage than is required, OCZ has included what is called an Extended Voltage Protection guarantee. This guarantee basically states that even though the OCZ Platinum Dual Channel 2048MB PC3-10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory is set to use 1.8V, you can still give it a maximum of 1.95V without invalidating the OCZ lifetime warranty.
So if you want to take advantage of the current P35, X38, or X48 platforms while experiencing the legendary quality and reliability of OCZ technology, update your system and grab the chance to experience the speed and performance the OCZ Platinum Dual Channel 2048MB PC3-10666 DDR3 1333MHz Memory can offer. With the unbeatable cooling solution and voltage protection that comes along with this matched RAM module package, you can expect that this pair of third generation DDR memory will not only provide you with the excellent performance your computer needs today.
