OCZ released the 4GB PC2-8500 Reaper HPC DDR2 memory kit. These modules run at 1066MHz with 5-5-5-18 timings and a voltage of 2.1V.

“DDR2 is starting to adopt 1066 MHz as the new mainstream frequency, not only for extreme overclocking but also for high system memory densities,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “In order to maximize the system performance, especially in the latest games, 4GB of memory are more and more becoming a must have…but it is also necessary to maintain the throughput regardless of the increase in density. The new PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB kits combine the best of two worlds by delivering extreme bandwidth at 1066 MHz data frequency at 5-5-5 latencies, in combination with advanced heatpipe-based thermal management to again raise the bar for high system memory densities.”
