OCZ and Asus today announced a cooperation to develop world's first 1GHz DDR2 memory. The two companies already managed to break the 1000MHz barrier on Asus's P5WD2 motherboard with OCZ's premium modules and say that a retail product will follow soon.
“We are proud to have gained recognition by ASUS Tek for our superior product line,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, Director of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “Being able to achieve 1GHz data rate in system memory is marking another milestone event for the PC platform that is only possible through close collaboration between system board and memory manufacturers dedicated to constantly raising the quality and performance bar of their product.”
Never ceasing to be the first to deliver the most outrageous speeds possible, OCZ Technology Group is on a clear and present path to releasing the industry’s first PC2-8000 memory—a ground-breaking landmark for longtime enthusiasts and future ones to come.
