OCZ Technology Group today expanded their memory lineup for AMD enthusiasts and power users with new high-density 8GB Quad Kits, which, according to the company, are custom-tailored to the extended column address range of the AM2 memory controller.
With 11 column address bit support by the AM2 memory controller, the number of addresses in each row or page can be as high as 2048 individual entries for a page size of 16kbit. Unlike modules based on standard 10-bit column address chips with an “8k” page size, the new Titanium AM2 Special modules take advantage of the AM2 controller’s feature set and provide a single rank solution with 2GB density using “16k” pages. This allows the controller to stay “in page” twice as long compared to standard memory architectures, thereby achieving unparalleled performance.
The new PC2-5400 AM2 Special is optimized for 64-bit operating systems and is available with either two or four 2GB DDR2-667 modules rated for operation at 667MHz with 5-5-5-15 timings. As part of its line-up of premium memory, the AM2 Special series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and technical support.
