OCZ has released 3GB PC2-5400 SODIMM memory kits for notebooks:
With a breadth of consumer and enthusiast notebooks supporting various hardware capabilities, OCZ strives to provide optimal upgrades for various system requirements. For users requiring an additional boost from the standard 2GB of RAM without the incurring the price premiums of a 4GB kit, OCZ 3GB SODIMM kits are an excellent alternative. Upgrade RAM is critical for notebooks running graphics-intensive Windows™ Vista™, or in any other operating system, and the everyday consumer using their laptop for picture editing, music, and videos can benefit from having this substantial boost in performance.
“The separation of the virtual memory address space into kernel and user memory allows up to 2GB of memory to be accessible as user memory in a 32-bit operating system,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Consequently, the total memory space needs to be larger than 2GB in order to accommodate the operating system and reserved memory areas for integrated on-board devices, without compromising the user memory. The new 3GB kits match these requirements without adding redundancy at additional cost and increased power consumption that would decrease battery life,” Dr. Schuette, continued.
These high-performance memory modules are priced aggressively and targeted at the value-minded consumer. They are now available in 3GB kits (1GB module + 2GB module) rated to run 5-5-5-15 timings for exceptional system performance. PC2-5400 SODIMMs are built to provide optimal levels of compatibility using the highest quality components and testing available.
