OCZ to launch 3GB memory kits

Posted on Saturday, Jun 07 2008 @ 03:15 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
OCZ is showing off new 3GB memory kits at Computex. The Inquirer thinks these modules are kinda weird but if they are DDR3 modules there's a good explanation for this: the triple-channel memory support of Nehalem.
The next one is something that made me scratch my head enough for it to bleed, a 3GB memory kit. OCZ has them in DIMMs and SO-DIMMs for the 32-bit OS upgrade market. Windows has a broken memory model, and can't see more than 3GB (technically a hair more), so OCZ is filling that niche. No more RMAs with "1GB doesn't work" on it, now you simply don't get that 1GB. It will be interesting to see how it works in the market, but we want to see a bundle with a three-core Phenom and three ATI GPUs just to play with people's heads.
