OCZ unveils DDR3 1333MHz performance memory

By Justin Mann on June 22, 2007, 2:41 PM
OCZ is well known for their memory, which almost exclusively targets very high performance enthusiast systems. While DDR3 is still extremely new to the market and DDR3 supporting systems are very rare, OCZ is already crafting “performance” class RAM for those systems. This week, they introduced the OCZ PC3-10666 Platinum edition, bringing with it lower latencies when put up against comparable modules.

Designed around Intel's P35 and X38 Express chipsets, the new ram runs at timings of CL7-7-7-20, which is better than normal for DDR3 RAM at that speed. They have made 1GB and 2GB dual channel kits available, though supply is “limited” in their own words:

These modules are currently available in limited quantity and OCZ has been working closely with the leading platform providers to ensure optimal performance and compatibility on all the next generation computing platforms that will be introduced later this year.
You can read more about OCZ's DDR3 modules in particular on their site. These units will likely be far from “affordable”, but that's what you get with “enthusiast-class” memory.

DDR3 is really pissing me off. Right when I upgraded my computer from a garbage Pentium 2, to a P4 with DDR1, they released DDR2. Now, I'm finally upgrading to DDR2 in less than three weeks and they release DDR3... I think RAM technology advances too fast. Imagine the outburst if they came out with a whole new version of PCI-E every 1.5 years that wasn't compatible with any previous versions, and claimed to offer greater bandwidth, when the bandwidth the current interface offered was more than anything needed...
