OCZ has released two new 4GB DDR3 dual-channel Black Edition memory kits
that are specifically dialed in for AMD's Phenom II processors. Both kits clock in at 1600MHz and boast a low 1.65 voltage, with the only noteworthy difference being their timings. One kit is rated at 8-8-8-24, and the other is a touch tighter at 7-7-7-24.
OCZ designed its Black Edition RAM for use with AMD's OverDrive software
utility, according to Eugene Chang, vice president of product management. He went on to explain that the new modules "not only interact with AMD OverDrive to overclock the memory, but also communicate with the BIOS to increase the frequency and performance of the memory controller."
Each module is equipped with an AMD-branded XTC (Xtreme Thermal Convection) heatspreader, and is backed by OCZ's lifetime warranty and technical support. There is no official word on price or availability yet.
