OCZ unveils DDR3-1800 Intel Extreme Edition memory kit

Posted on Thursday, Dec 13 2007 @ 20:52 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
OCZ announced new 1800MHz Intel Extreme Memory modules, a performance solution that implements a specification predefined and specially tailored for the Intel X48 chipset. These top-speed modules are the ideal solution for enthusiasts looking for the extra performance gains optimized memory offers their system.

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. Configured to Intel’s defined specification, these XMP-Ready memory kits will be configured to run CL8 latencies at 1800 MHz. Furthermore, each OCZ XMP module also features CL7 latencies on a second profile that is qualified by OCZ for the extreme enthusiast seeking tighter timings.

“In the past, the system memory has been confined by chipset and system clocks,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Intel’s XMP platform redefines the role of the system memory by allowing it to set the pace for the entire system, which in turn positively affects the performance of all other components. This naturally fits the philosophy of OCZ Technology as a performance pioneer, since using the new PC3-14400 XMP Ready memory modules will make the system run faster by providing easy overclocking right out of the box.”

Great but these days, and for this high end market they probably should have 4gb 2x2 kits, which apparently can't be done.
