PNY unveiled 2GB XLR8 memory modules at CES 2007. PNY XLR8 Gold memory modules incorporate an innovative PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design that locates all the memory ICs on one side of the board. This configuration allows for the opposite side of the PCB to be used to attach a massive heat sink that extracts heat from the underside of the ICs through a custom expanded ground plane

. Additionally, PNY Technologies' XLR8 Blue memory uses a similar custom heat sink design that has been adapted for standard two-sided memory modules. Both of these heat sink designs provide superior heat extraction for enhanced reliability and endurance under the high-stress conditions that enthusiasts and overclockers subject their equipment to.
